Dirt under our polished nails, skinned knees under pleated skirts, we’re breaking boyish boundaries with our femininity intact. Fearless, progressive and out past dark.



We are Ashta Hunter and Elizabeth Benzing. After working ten years as designers in the fashion industry we started Tomboy BKLYN. As women of color, we observed that there was no platform for showcasing or representing our point of view on non-mainstream femininity or fashion. We are creating a community that encourages expression of originality and diversity of body type, sexuality, and culture. We recognize that if we are feeling isolated from the conversation around fashion, that others must be too. Tomboy BKLYN is the link between style, sexuality, and feminism.
