Today we’ll take a look at some of the designs Senator Harris wore for two different San Francisco Pride Parades, starting with the 2018 event.
Below you see Senator Harris with her husband Doug Emhoff and niece Meena Harris as they ride in the parade.
The Senator was in a top depicting Emmy award-winning actress/screenwriter/producer Lena Waithe in an ensemble the actress wore to the 2018 Met Gala. That look showcased a Carolina Herrera (designed by Wes Anderson) seen below.Embed from Getty Images
More about Ms. Waithe wearing the cape via this Vogue piece.
“When I saw the cape in person, I got emotional, not just because it was so stunning, but I knew we would be making a statement.”
Proceeds from sales of the Lena Waithe Pride Unisex T-Shirt went to The Trevor Project, which provides crisis and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning youth.
Atop the tee, Ms. Harris wore a blazer by a brand she has worn several times, Argent. The style was the brand’s Elongated Blazer in a color called Lapis. It is no longer available.
More about the brand from this Shondaland story by Mary Gonsalves Kinney on feminist fashion brands to support.
A desperate search for the perfect work suit inspired Sali Christeson to launch Argent in 2016. She developed a suit that fits well, has swagger, and helps define your personality with bold colors, prints, as well as practical features, like easily accessible media and stylus pocket(s).
“Our mission remains: cultivate and magnify a diverse and inclusive community, while shaping the future of work by equipping all women to take their seat at the table,” says Christeson. “There is a lot of work to be done. We seek to do our small part.”
Our next ID is also something worn to a Pride Parade, this time the 2019 event.
Ms. Harris wore a custom jacket by San Francisco-based Levi’s. Below, the Senator and daughter-in-law Meena Harris, in a photo tweeted by Doug Emhoff.

The oversized jacket was customized with hundreds of shimmering sequins or jewels. Levi’s offers a special Pride Collection, while also noting, “June is Pride month but we celebrate Pride all year.” Levi’s donates 100% of net profits from the collection to OutRight Action International, an organization fighting “for the human rights for LGBTIQ people everywhere.”

The Senator also wore a pair of her Chuck Taylor All Stars canvas sneakers at the 2019 Pride Parade. They are almost identical to the Natural Ivory Low Tops ($50) shown below (the number of eyelets is off).
