STUZO CLOTHING: Queer LA Streetwear

Founded in 2010 by Stoney Michelli and Uzo Ejikeme, lesbian owned and operated STUZO CLOTHING is a line that combines the laid-back Cali street style reminiscent of Gwen Stefani with the intense urban street style evoked by A$AP Rocky. The effortless blending of East and West Coast swag is reflected in the founders’ design philosophy: “Although based in Los Angeles, our hearts beat to the drum of the big city of New York!”

STUZO only produces a few pieces – which include everything from snapbacks (crowns), to button downs, to joggers –  per design in order to provide quality, limited edition products. Their crowns have been worn by celebrities such as Kiyomi (Hunter Valentine, The Real L Word), comedian Gina Yashere (Conan O’Brien, Def Comedy Jam), Lauren Russell (The Real L Word), Whitney and Sara (The Real L Word), and Lorie Moore of “The X Factor.” dapperQ wants to get our hands on just about everything in their collection, but here are just a few of our favorites:
