Check out our selection of brands who are doing diversity right:
It may be hard to believe that Nünude was only founded in 2016. During that time, the campaign for their collection of nude, multi-purpose, two-piece sets has gone viral, and they’ve literally managed to change the definition of "nude" in the Oxford English Dictionary to more accurately describe an entire spectrum of skin tones. As well as challenging the very language that we associate with color, Nünude strives to make women of different shapes and abilities feel beautiful, too.
Diversity itself is a diverse topic: while Lonely might not carry the range of sizes we might hope to see (the largest is a US size 10), we admire the way this New Zealand-based brand includes women outside of the industry-standard age-bracket in its campaigns.
This Swedish high street brand was bought by the H&M group in 2008, but that hasn’t stopped it from being body-positive and forward-thinking. An L at Monki is the equivalent of a US size 16, and what’s more is that the website has an entire section dedicated to cool projects about the causes they care about, including LGBTQ rights, sex-positivity and periods.
Undone is a one-stop shop for picking up quality, thoughtfully made pieces from around the world, with a focus on lingerie. What is especially exciting about this company is that none of their photography is retouched.
The founders of Third Love are all about boobs. Not only are their bras specially designed with comfort in mind, but they also know that many women are between two cup sizes, so they developed half sizes. Simple. Why does no one else do it? Oh, and there’s also the fantastic, inclusive New Nakeds Collection that incorporates a broad spectrum of skin tones.
Chromat’s New York Fashion Week runway shows have always been inclusive of women of different shapes, colors and abilities to highlight the strength and all-round badass nature of women. Founder Becca McCharen-Tran cites powerful women as the inspiration behind her collections, and that’s probably why everyone from Beyoncé and Taylor Swift to Serena Williams has rocked one of their architectural designs.
Australian designer Diana Kotb's label was born out of her personal struggle to find luxe designer modest wear. As a Muslim woman who chooses to wear a hijab, Kotb wanted to create beautifully tailored, high-fashion pieces for women just like herself. Her unique, conservative pieces are special in their details, and Kotb's extensive experience in the fashion industry is evident in her creations.
