Statement Makers

In 2020, we announced our commitment to allocate $1 million to support and expand Black-owned brands and designers in our Closet in the Cloud through design, data and financial resources. We are excited to share that as of spring 2021, we have exceeded that commitment and tripled the number of Black-owned brands on our site.
