Our Story

The Founder

Akilah Shaw is a creative and results-driven apparel professional with more than 16 years of successful fashion design, product development, and visual merchandising experience. She has a track record of successful operational life cycle management from launching new brands/categories through product planning strategy, design concept, costing, specifications to assembly and production.

The Beginnings

Tahirah apparel was developed to empower and inspire everyone who experiences our product. Our apparel boasts a wide array of everything from encouraging affirmations to fierce flexes of personal power to help push you and your circles forward. 

A Custom Approach

We view our customers as partners in our mission to both saturate the world with the confidence and positivity we pour into our clothing and improve the quality of life for everyone who experiences mental Illness.


Conversations around mental health and wellness have steadily become more of a cultural focus. While the continued destigmatization of these formerly taboo topics is a great win, we need to make even greater strides in ensuring every adult and child has access to mental health resources.  With 1 out of 5 adults experiencing mental illness according to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, the need for relief is immediate.
