828 Clothing is a black-owned clothing brand. Its founder is Danielle Forte, wife of former Chicago Bears Running Back, Matt Forte. Danielle is also the mom of two toddlers, and she is the creative influence behind 828. Fashion has always been a passion of Danielle’s. She says an individual’s sense of style is one of life’s “guilt-free” pleasures. It is also an outlet for creative self-expression. In 2015 Danielle launched her first black-owned business, which was also a fashion line. The Danielle Forte Collection has now matured. The “grown-up version,” 828 Clothing, launched on August 28, 2017. The launch date was a nod to the Romans 8.28 Bible verse, which speaks of love and purpose. Danielle and Matt say that these principles guide their personal and professional lives.
