Independent Streetwear Brands to Watch in 2019
Streetwear is one of the biggest fashion styles at the moment. If you’re trying to mould your own individual sense of style, then injecting streetwear fashion can really help to give you the cool and collected aesthetic that you’ve always wanted.
It’s important to support independent designers who are trying to forge their way in the fashion industry. This is a great way to put your own personal stamp on the streetwear style and without it, it’s likely that most people would dress the same. Most people shop the same fast fashion brands and have the same look, so standing out from the crowd is a great way to create a fresh and individual look for yourself.
Knowing you have purchased independent clothing from a local company often tells you exactly where the product came from and the conditions it was made in. This is not the case for purchasing products from overseas corporate giants, so the process of making clothes for such a small price may not occur in fair working conditions.
Here are a few independent clothing stores to inspire you to branch out and separate yourself from the crowd:
