The fashion industry is changing, and it’s for the better. More non-binary and gender-inclusive brands are popping up and gaining notoriety. The industry is making strides into inclusive territory and removing unnecessary gender labels previously “assigned” to styles. Creating genderless styles isn’t as easy as you’d think. Not only are you up against a hundred years of gender labeling that dictates what is “appropriate” or “correct” or “attractive” for men and women to wear, you’re also dealing with bodies that can be shaped quite differently. These brands go beyond the standard “men” and “women” section of their collections, making pieces that work for every body and every gender.
Based in Brooklyn, NY, Chelsea Bravo’s collections feature fluid womenswear and menswear, creatively infusing an artistic hand combined with simple and free shapes through a contemporary silhouette. Pieces are sampled and made-to-order in-house.
This sustainable brand makes universal garments, equally tailored to fit men, women and people. A company that is firmly guided by self-definition, its eco-conscious range includes organic cottons from Japanese farms, unique blends of wool and woven rice paper, and linen from the flax fields in Japan’s cooler climates.
69 is an all-inclusive denim lifestyle brand based in Los Angeles. 69 is timeless and classic yet made in our present and meant for the future. Most of our inventory is produced within a six mile radius of DTLA and you can visit its showroom in MacArthur Park.
Taylor is a huge fan of this comfy brand. Entireworld is the stuff you live in. The fashion brand that makes non-boring basics. Comfortable clothing for everyday wear: T-shirts, sweaters, button-ups, underwear + more, this brand begs the question, “What happens when you put the love into the simple stuff?” While they have a men’s section and a women’s, all of its clothing was made for non-binary comfort.
This brand is anti-waste and gender-free, created by NY-based non-binary artist MI Leggett. As a former food justice advocate with a background in sustainable agriculture, video art and painting, the company now transforms unwanted materials into unique clothing and sculptures. Challenging the boundaries between art and fashion, the company has shown work at New York Fashion Week and Berlin Fashion Week, international galleries and New Art Dealers Alliance.
