It's pretty much impossible to walk into a mall and find Black-owned fashion brands to shop. Even the fact that we live in the glorious digital age of shopping doesn't always make the process of discovering Black fashion designers easy. Sure, we've personally come across one or two brands while scrolling through Instagram accounts, conducting Google searches, and have learned about a handful through organizations like Brandice Daniel's Harlem Fashion Row, Victor Glemaud IN THE BLK, and Zerina Akers' Black Owned Everything. But even after a handful of companies have committed to supporting Black-owned business with Aurora James' 15 Percent Pledge, it's still harder than it should be to find amazing Black designers to support.

So, to make things a little easier for everyone, we've rounded up 52 of our absolute favorite Black fashion designers. Keep clicking through discover some of the best celebrity-loved and up-and-coming labels, ahead.

The State of the Arts is InStyle's biannual celebration of the Black creativity and excellence driving fashion, beauty, self-care, and the culture at large.
