When it comes to wardrobe staples, STAUD has it down to a science. If that science were based on emotion instead of formulas, technicolor dream coats instead of those meant for a lab, and the idea that “matter” is just stuff in the universe while a good handbag is anything but. It’s why, in 2015, Sarah Staudinger and George Augusto co-founded the LA-based brand upon the idea that fashion shouldn’t just empower women — it should be accessible, too.
Fourth Wave Feminist Apparel creates eco-friendly screen prints for the modern feminist.

Each shirt reminds the wearer of their own inherent courage and strength. Something we need in spades today! Check out the brand’s Etsy store too.
