It began with wanting to wear our values...

How we started

In the summer of 2018, ignited by the political crisis of the Trump presidency and inspired by the mobilization of the Women's March, Alex Posen, an artist and creative director of fashion and Dahna Goldstein, a tech and social entrepreneur came together to create Resistance by Design: a company at the intersection of art, fashion and activism.

What we do

Resistance by Design makes thoughtfully designed and politically opinionated accessories and designs. We are guided by the idea that good design can be a powerful tool in catalyzing change: making ideas visible, broadcasting beliefs, sparking conversations, and fostering common understanding. We know that life and art are profoundly entwined, and that it is possible to draw the world we want to see.

Who we are

We’re women. We’re mothers, artists, fashion designers, and tech entrepreneurs. We are passionate advocates for women's rights, human rights, LGBTQ rights, Black lives, immigrants, science, and so many other issues. We believe in the power of people- and we believe that galvanizing civic engagement can lead to meaningful and lasting reform.
