The Best Pieces To Shop From Each Racked Young Gun

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The appeal of fast fashion is understandable, but know what's really exciting? Being able to purchase something that 1,000 other people won't have from a designer you found out about before most everyone else in your social circle. That's why we're bringing you a shopping guide to our Young Gun designers, all local, indie up-and-comers. When you're shopping these labels, you're not only supporting a new talent, you're also supporting the carefully-chosen factories and artisans they work with.

We've tracked down incredible pieces by each and every one one of our 15 finalists. Added bonus: A bunch of it is on sale.
