Independent Designer Directory

I have a thing for independent designers and retailers.

As a way of organizing my favorite emerging designers in one place, and in hopes of educating those who are interested in shopping small, I've put together an independent designer directory of sorts.

This mini-directory contains a curated selection of emerging ready-to-wear, accessory, beauty, and home lines as well as a few retailers – all independently owned.

Every few weeks I update this list and share my favorite finds on Instagram. Enjoy!

Have a submission for the independent designer directory? Contact me
