MadeMe's Latest Collection with Artist Aya Brown Celebrates the LGBTQ+ Community

MadeMe‘s motto is “for girls, by girls.”

While Pride Month is coming to an end soon, fashion brands are continuing to roll out collections and campaigns celebrating Pride. Female-run streetwear brand MadeMe has tapped Brooklyn artist Aya Brown for a collaborated range of T-shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and underwear.

The collection features three of Brown’s original artworks, which are created exclusively on brown paper. These drawings include The North Face Nuptse jackets, B.B. Simon belts and harnesses created by the artist herself. During her project with MadeMe, Brown expressed strong personal connection to her work. “The girl I’m drawing is very specific to how I identify. A fuckin’ Dipset dyke from Brooklyn — it’s myself, girls I know, girls I’ve been attracted to. It’s important for me to document my own history, my black queer history. Because what does our space even look like? Our lesbian space? Our black lesbian space? The world is so not ready, but we’re fucking coming!” The full lineup consists of a white tank top, two hoodie designs, two T-shirt designs arriving in three colorways each, and underwear in black, pink, and white.

All proceeds from the collaboration will be donated to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute, an organization working to defend the rights of black trans people. Scroll through the gallery above for the Aya Brown x MadeMe collection, which is now available on the brand’s web store.
