2023 Forward-Thinking Fashion

Blk Ivy Thrift

Kimberly McGlonn’s fashion-as-activism vision is fully realized at the new Blk Ivy Thrift. Her thrift-and-vintage shop, housed in her former Grant BLVD space (which found new digs on Penn’s campus), stocks styles from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s that were often worn by Black creatives and civil rights champions. Retro-hued knit dresses, button-front cardigans and classic true-blue denim are just a few of the finds that define McGlonn’s entirely original retail concept.
