About Grant BLVD
Grant Blvd is more than just another clothing brand. We are rewriting the story of fashion by disrupting the whole system from top to bottom, inside and out. Our truest work is to use fashion to restore lives dignity, and to create a sense of belonging. It's about us, all of us, and it's about designing radically inclusive pathways in the best interest of our collective good.
As a B Corp, we pride ourselves on creating sustainable and stylish fashion for the community that also prioritizes the needs of the community. Specifically, we're dedicated to production practices that are rooted in integrity, hyper consciousness for the health of our planet, while also remaining committed to addressing centuries long practices that led to our current state of economic injustice which stem from slavery to Jim Crow and has now manifested in mass incarceration and slave labor. We address these issues through the entire process of production from sourcing materials, paying a livable wage to all employees and engaging in zero-waste practices to name a few. What's also really exciting? Grant Blvd is a Black woman owned sustainable brand with deep roots in Philadelphia.
