WANNA SEE OUR PEACOCK?

FLAVNT Streetwear is an Austin-based independent clothing brand for everyone within and anyone who supports the LGBTQ+ community. Started with the goal of creating clothes that promote confidence and pride, FLAVNT is all about being comfortable with who you are and flaunting that to the world. We 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 through our fundraising initiatives.

THE TEAM

 COURTNEY RHODES  Co-Owner and Designer  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 t-shirts. She 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 works full time as a graphic designer in downtown Austin. She is the proud cat-mother to two cat-sons who are menaces but she loves them more than she could love a human baby. She has also made it her goal to watch every show with a lesbian storyline (The Bold Type is her fave currently) and knows way more sports trivia than any person should. Courtney is dating a pretty swell gal named Kristen and sometimes they make youtube videos together. You can find them at  youtube.com/c/thatwifelife .

 CHRIS RHODES  Co-Owner and Designer  Chris is the other half of FLAVNT Streetwear and is Courtney's identical twin. Chris is trans, which makes helping trans people out very near and dear to his heart. The original "Pretty Boy", Chris first created our bestselling shirt for himself and soon realized the design resonated with all types of people. This very idea is what sparked FLAVNT Streetwear into action. The name "FLAVNT" was also Chris’ doing, 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. He works full time at FLAVNT alongside creating content on social media as an influencer and is a father to a furry pup named Rowling. He is currently penning his first book of poems, and has a podcast in the works (find out more at  nobodyscissors.com  ). He also makes frequent youtube videos at  youtube.com/c/seethestarsablaze .

FLAVNT REPS

OUR MISSION

Stay Pretty

We are a brand by queer people for queer people. 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. 

Give Back

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 highlight a community that is often overlooked. Additionally, our manufacturing team for our Bareskin Binders is run by a woman of color and features an all-woman team here in Texas, supporting a local female-owned business. 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.


You can also find us hanging around the East Side in Austing when we aren't working our day jobs, let us know if you're in town and want to hang out!
