Who We Are
We are Wildfang. We had grown tired of asking: Are real pockets revolutionary? Is it too much to ask for a button up without boob gap? Why is the fashion industry still clinging to outdated gender norms that serve no one? In answering these questions, Wildfang was born. We’re on a mission to rethink gender norms and how they show up in fashion. We embrace our masculine, our feminine, and our everything in between. You can shop with us online or swing by our stores in PDX and LA. Female founded.
