Our goal is to make sure that the things you love are reflected in the things you buy. Who doesn’t love a graphic tee? They are effortlessly chic and fun and often become the first clues into your personality or mood. Browsing the racks of your favorite mainstream brands you certainly won’t be hard-pressed to find a variety of cute and fashionable tees. Chances are, however, you will be hard-pressed to find tees that truly reflect your culture and the things you love. Though the exclusion of women of color in media and product development is not as polarizing as it has been in the past, we are still often bombarded with media that pushes stereotypes and images that do not always reflect us fully. This is why Izzy & Liv was created. We're not all the same... but we've got somethings in common Black women come in all shades, shapes, sizes and styles. We come from different walks of life, have varied interests and a range of experiences. We are each unique and possess a beauty that is our own. Still, often times we feel an unspoken bond. This is true whether we are
blood-relatives, life-long friends, or strangers in a room of unfamiliar faces, who give each other that familiar nod or reassuring smile that says ""you have a friend here."" THIS is the powerful, unexplainable bond that many of us have. This is the aura Izzy & Liv taps into with our apparel and accessories. Our brand is self-affirming, inspirational, fun, sassy, filled with pop culture references and a bit retro. Our goal is to to design pieces that reflect some of our shared experiences; celebrates the icons we love; reinforces the empowering beauty we possess, and immortalizes the things we can’t get enough -- things that makes us laugh and smile. When you shop at Izzy & Liv, you're bound to find something that you can relate to! As women of color continue to rock around the world, Izzy & Liv’s mission is to help them do it confidently and stylishly. Our brand launched in 2014 by Nicole W. Brown. Her daughters, Isabel (Izzy) and Olivia (Liv), gave her the inspiration to create a clothing line that speaks to both black women and little girls who want to see more of themselves in the mainstream.
