About the Owners
Opening the African American clothing shop on Elm Street was not an accident. Ervin and Means wanted to place BlaCk OWned Outerwear in a stretch of town not particularly known for black retail. BlaCk OWned Outerwear’s mission is to promote Black ownership while challenging societal inequities through fashion and storytelling.
BlaCk OWned Outerwear’s Instagram and Facebook are not only beautiful and well-organized, but they are also informative and inspiring. The Cincinnati fashion brand posts different events, from parties to performances to pop-ups.
