Founded in 2020 by sisters Randi & Taylor Leath, De Essentia is a concept store and social enterprise bringing exciting and emerging Black designers from around the world to your fingertips.

Every De Essentia designer is Black, but the fashion is for everyone. Our brand is  about building a legacy of Black ownership of our own creativity and artistry. We will be the home of the next generation of heritage brands.


We do not  seek simply a seat at the table, but to plant the seed. De Essentia serves as a manifestation of the infinite heights we aspire to for our community. We invite everyone to join us in this journey.

Black never goes out of style.
