feature: sister-founded tee shirt brand zoe love designs makes funky and vibrant black art apparel

March 25, 2016

Zoe Love Design in a bohemian-inspired tee shirt line the caters to the black femmes with a love of culture, art, and vibrant design. ZLD was founded by sisters Sharlene and Michelle who got the idea after being unable to find clothing that they felt represented them as Afro-Bohemians who don’t identify with a lot of the mainstream apparel that is available. Aesthetically, ZLD draws from West African and Caribbean cultures as well as its founder’s perspectives as black creatives. Check out some of Sharlene and Michelle’s favorite designs down below and shop the store right here.
