“When people dress for themselves, that’s where creativity and originality really show.” Those are the words of designer and stylist Beth Gibbs, and this philosophy strongly explains her style the point of view of her line, Bephie. As a New York transplant who now resides in Los Angeles (and co-owner and Creative Director of streetwear mecca Union), Beth has long been inspired the black experience of Southern California, but her eye has been deeply influenced by art as well. Beth’s work has a distinctly feminist approach. She thinks first of creating clothing for Black women. Moreover, her pieces are gender-neutral and meant to convey freedom of thought and freedom of movement, not just in one’s own body, but across a range of spaces. Each garment and accessory is made with the utmost quality, care, and attention to detail, in unique silhouettes and comfortable shapes. And like the world of streetwear that Beth comes from, Bephie is rooted in community. She is most known for her work on the film, NATIVE SON, by Rashid Johnson.
