When Beyoncé shows her support for gender-neutral clothing, you know the nonbinary movement has reached a milestone. Beyoncé, an entrepreneur always in touch with the cultural zeitgeist, revealed to Elle in late 2019 that her athleisure brand, Ivy Park, would release its own line of gender-neutral sportswear. And it did, along with the help of one of the biggest sportswear giants in the biz — Adidas — while sending the message that fashion should be democratic and inclusive.

But these titans of the fashion world aren't the only ones leading the charge for better representation. In just the last decade, innovative designers and fashion labels big and small have been breaking so-called fashion rules with new lines for anyone seeking clothes better suited to their identities. Fashion and self-expression have long been bedfellows, so it’s only natural that the industry recognizes there is so much more to clothing for people of all gender identities and expressions. The possibilities for what gender-neutral fashion can accomplish are just scratching the surface, and these brands are leading the way.
