7 Clothing Brands That are Feminist AF

7 Clothing Brands That are Feminist AF

Feminism is a hot topic in fashion now — but what makes a brand feminist?

We have Mara Hoffman who invited the founders of the women's march to their fashion show, and post protest style on their instagram, yet only work with and display thin models. The once popular "This is What A Feminist Looks Like" Tee Shirt from ELLE Uk and The Fawcett Society took a turn in sales when it was revealed that they are produced in a Mauritian sweat shop which underpays its female employees. Then we have Missoni, who designed a fashion line around knitted pink pussy hats, while only featuring thin models on the runway and selling clothing that never went above a size 10. And look at Aeri, who have been making a splash with their anti-photoshop "Real" campaign, in which they only feature thin women

Brands that claim a feminist title but don't challenge the industry's lack of regard for women's lives are not in fact feminists — but rather they are turning feminism into a trend that they can profit off of. 

In looking for authentic feminist brands to feature, we had a few factors in mind: body positivity (that includes actual fat people), ethical labor practices, ethical environmental practices, and LGBTQ and POC inclusion. Sadly, the brands whose business models are fueled by ethics rather than money don't turn as much of a profit — and this is why those of us with the means to do so should consider supporting them.

But while the climate for these brands can feel discouraging, some larger brands like Modcloth help demonstrate that it is possible to do all these things and be successful as a business. The more we vote with our money, the more we can see brands that reflect our values.

Update 3.14.17: Just heard word of Thinx not treating employees well despite feminist values.

Update 3.15.17: Model Tyler Ford has bravely come forward to share their transphobic experience when pitching Thinx for a modeling gig. Thinx has been removed from this list.

Update 10.7.17: We removed Modcloth because they are now owned by Walmart

rebellelion is a small collective of anti-establishment creatives. They reject the traditional fashion production model in which clothing is mass produced, over-priced, and "slathered in logos." What's more, they don't have a logo at all. They say, "our goal is not to be identifiable by a name or a symbol. . . rebellelion is not something that we own, but a shared idea. experimentation fueled by D.I.Y. spirit. proud to be rough around the edges, pushing our limits & embracing imperfection. unpolished & unapologetic. we thrive on collaboration & seek to support a community through art & activism. "

LOVE, CORTNIE was founded in the Summer of 2011 in the founder's Grandmother's kitchen: "I had always wanted to learn how to sew, but never made the time to actually learn. That August I was in between jobs, and well, finally had the time. My grandmother is super handy around the house. Upholstering furniture, drapery, clothing, you name it, she could do it. So it was very important to me that I learn from her." The founder features many styles on their blog, where they proudly show off pregnant fashion.

4. Ready To Stare

Ready to Stare is a body positive apparel and accessory brand by size activist Alysse Dalessandro. With a focus on handcrafting everyday statement pieces, Ready to Stare launched in February 2012 with a small collection of jewelry pieces on Etsy.
