"Never Apologizing, Never Conforming.™"
We've already raised $9,165 out of our $25k goal and are only $15K shy. Will you help us open Miami's first Queer Afro-Latina-Owned retail and creative safe?
Kalani and Wolf is a keystone retail and creative safe space where BIPOC, LGBTQ+ Allied brands, and the community come together to shop, grab a bite, and socialize. Our handcrafted sustainable garments and accessories promote shameless self-love, body confidence, and individuality.
"As a Queer, Afro-Latina customer, and sustainable fashion entrepreneur in Florida, I came to understand that our communities lack representation and accessible retail and creative safe spaces for our beautiful and ever so diverse BIPOC and LGBTQ+ family. The demand for inclusivity birthed a broad spectrum of ideas for our retail and creative space. " - Joanis Duran
After extensive research, we found that local retailers lacked authenticity, values, and knowledge of our communities’ needs. These retailers had zero desire to provide sustainable curated services to our BIPOC and LGBTQ+ families. That’s why our mission is to share our space with authentic BIPOC and Queer designers who can substantially contribute to our movement and educate retailers who aren’t on our same wavelength, yet.
As we continue making headway, Kalani and Wolf assert a 90/10 rule. 90% of our space is dedicated to all BIPOC and LGBTQ+ brands, & 10% will feature allied brands to foster community and inclusivity within our multi-concept retail space. Our highest priority is to embrace social
awakening, and inclusivity for black, indigenous, and people of color, lgbtq+, and allies who
take part in creating a sense of belonging and visibility in Florida.
As a key retailer for all people of color and lgbtq+, we've created a customer experience that's educational and inspirational. Our destination shop houses its own recycling center, plant-based care, and waterless nail salon, reiki and meditation room, a vegan coffee and juice shop, and a sitting area
along with a curated selection ranging from apparel, skincare, jewelry, home decor, apothecary,
books, arts, and so much more.

Another fundamental movement for Kalani and Wolf is our creative safe space will be free of cost to non-profit organizations and host free social awakening events, fashion, wellness, mental sessions, art workshops for our BIPOC and Queer youth, and so much more.
