WANNA SEE OUR PEACOCK?
FLAVNT Streetwear is an Austin based independent clothing brand for men, women, and everybody in between. Started with the goal of creating clothes that promote confidence, especially within the LGBTQ community, FLAVNT is all about being proud and comfortable with who you are and flaunting that to the world. We try to promote this message of self-love and confidence through our designs and actions by supporting the LGBTQ community as a whole, as well as impacting individual lives.
We are a brand by the minority for the majority. We don't believe in men's or women's clothing, we just make clothes that promote self-confidence and self-love. Be proud of who you are. FLAVNT it.
We absolutely believe that everyone should give back to their community as much as possible, however they can. We use our social visibility to show the world that not everyone fits into the gender/social binary and nobody has to. We feature gay, straight, queer, and trans models in an attempt to feature a community that is often overlooked. This paired with our fundraising partnerships are just a couple ways that we try and give back to the people who help to support our brand and our vision.
GET TO KNOW US.
Courtney is one half of the FLAVNT partnership; she helps design, promote, and run the business and is the mastermind behind some of your favorite designs. Both "Gender Roles Are Dead" illustrations were created by Courtney, along with some of your favorite phrases on FLAVNT tshirts. Courtney is also to blame for most of the captions on instagram and tumblr--so if something is painfully corny or makes you crack a smile, blame her. Aside from FLAVNT, Courtney worked full time as a graphic designer in Manhattan for most of 2015. She is the proud cat-mother to a beautiful cat-son named Percival who she loves more than most people. She has also made it her goal to watch every show with a lesbian storyline (Orphan Black is her fave currently) and knows way more sports trivia/information than any person should.
Chris is the other half of FLAVNT Streetwear and he is Courtney's identical twin. Chris is trans and so helping trans people out is something that is very near and dear to his heart. The original "Pretty Boy", Chris created that shirt design and the entire idea behind the phrase--Pretty Boys come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and variations and this idea is what sparked FLAVNT Streetwear into action. Chris was also the one who came up with the idea for the name "FLAVNT", partly inspired by the fact that Courtney has always said that Chris' spirit animal is a peacock. Chris is the social media wiz kid and the pretty face most of you know, but he really is so much more than just good looks and a full set of 32 teeth. Chris is a father to a furry pup named Rowling and is currently penning his memoir, which you can catch through weekly blog posts at nobodyscissors.com.
Here's a fun little office tour so you can feel like you're a part of our team -- which you totally can be if you love cat pictures and beer. We don't bite, so if you're ever in Austin (or anywhere close) hit us up so we can be friends!
