As we know Black History Month is coming to an end, but simultaneously the Black History Year continues to thrive.  New Orleans native, Blair Dottin-Haley and partner Brandon Dottin-Haley epitomizes just that—Black Excellence and History.  With the positive tagline — “Inspiration. Reflection. Laughter.”, the two have coined the term “Blairisms” creating a movement with their designs and clever expressions.

So What Are Blairisms? 

Launched in 2016, Blairisms are affirmations, meant to inspire, and create moments of reflection and laughter in order to strengthen individuals and communities. This “Edu-tainment” brand encourages self-care, accountability, self-advocacy, and above all else…LOVE!

With over 40 unique designs and 400 different products, the Blairisms Collection range from men’s, women‘s, and children’s apparel to wall art and coffee mugs.  The extensive line has certainly reached the masses,  and has caught the eyes of several noted celebrities like En Vogue, Kenny Lattimore, and DL Hughley.

Along with being a favored business, founders Blair and Brandon philanthropy and collaboration work with foundations like the Black, Gifted, and Whole Foundation has progressively strengthened the unity and  supporting scholarships for HBCUs. Also
in support of breast cancer survivors, Blairisms recently launched two designs to honor survivors and supporters. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to different organizations that provide screenings, resources and support to women of color battling the disease.

We Salute you Blair, Brandon, and all of the Blairisms Team.

Join the movement and share the vision.  Check out some of the pieces in the collection below.
