Logging onto Twitter has not always been a fun activity as of late. What was once a place for catching up on the latest in politics, memes and dry millennial humor has turned into a platform full to the brim with statistics about the growing global pandemic and panic. To say the least, good news has been very hard to find. That is, until, these two Twitter users took it upon themselves to brighten everyone’s days just the slightest bit in the difficult time. Last week,...

Born out of a father’s concern over his transgender daughter’s comfort and safety at the beach, Canadian dad Jamie Alexander created a line of swim bottoms for his child and those like her around the world. Before a family vacation to Panama, Alexander was worried that his then 11-year-old daughter Ruby might be in danger or discomfort at the beach. Though he didn’t have any firsthand experience with fashion or design, Alexander created swim bottoms that have a compression technology — and from that, Rubies were...
Folks with disabilities are rarely taken into account when designing clothes, especially lingerie. No mainstream lingerie companies are currently creating bras and underwear that are made to be accessible for women with disabilities. And honestly, that doesn’t make a lot of sense. According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 5 women in the world have a disability, so why haven’t they been represented in a product that so many women need? Luckily, Intimately.co is here to fix that. Founded in 2018, Intimately.co seeks to bring...

Back in 2017, fashion giant, Dior released a white t-shirt with “WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS” (a nod to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie book of the same name) pasted in black lettering across the front. Initially revealed at a fashion show and right at the beginning of the Trump Administration and #MeToo moment, many were impressed to see a company as big as Dior taking a stand and making a statement. Feminist celebs like Rihanna started repping the chic tee, and it was announced that a...
Nike’s official skater uniforms are out and ready for the world to see as the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo approach. Charged with the responsibility of designing uniforms for three countries—U.S.A., Brazil, and France—Nike partnered with professional skater and Dutch artist Pieter “Parra” Janssen to come up with a “kit of parts,” rather than a single homogenized “3-piece uniform.” “We were really cognizant about the fear of the Olympics and that skateboarding would have this homogenized look through a standard uniform,” Kelly Bird at Nike said,...
Fashion company M.M. LaFleur is aiming to give women in politics one less thing to worry about. The fashion retailer, founded in 2011 by Sarah LaFleur and Miyako Nakamura, is a multi-million dollar earning company that caters to women by curating looks for clients. The founders understand the very real fact that clothing can be an expense that some women cannot afford and this has prompted their Ready to Run line, an initiative that will dress women vying for office. This line is LaFleur’s way of...

With holidays come parties, so finish your cat-eye (or Euphoria-inspired glitter look) and take your tresses to the next level with disco waves. Hairstylist extraordinaire Ellie Hotaling from N.Y.C.’s Fringe Salon used Bantu knots to create this particular style. Originating centuries ago in southern Africa, Bantu knots are styled by twisting individual sections of hair into small, coiled buns, which can create cool waves when undone. It’s a technique that can be easily modified to fit your individual style and texture—prepping with the right type...
Just a few short years ago, I never saw girls that looked like me represented in the catalogues of my favorite clothing stores. This felt particularly evident when searching for lingerie. As a teenager, I’d have to play a guessing game on how a certain garment would look good on me, or run out of Victoria’s Secret in tears after trying on bras for two hours only to realize that 1. I’d never look like any of the models wearing them and 2. I’d never...
