Handsome Masculine Fashion for Women and Transmen at HauteButch. Fashion project on Kickstarter that is launching on October 15 2014. Fashion that requires great courage and conviction!
“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.” said Mark Twain more than a hundred years ago. This is how many women feel while shopping at men’s department – powerless and ashamed, as they were naked in a public place.
The firm was founded in 2012 by Karen Roberts, a US Navy veteran, entrepreneur and fashion designer and her wife of 10 years Michelle, addresses the needs of tomboys – butch women, androgynous straight women and transmen interested in wearing high quality men’s clothing that fits female figures. Hautebutch’s clothes make you feel good, comfortable and confident.
They are raising the $20,000 necessary to produce the 2015 collection. The Kickstarter backers will get early access to the collection and save money by pledging on the crowdfunding website. They can choose from the whole line of fashion accessories and footwear: from a signature silk bowtie to a GOTHAM jacket. The most generous backers will have a unique opportunity to name a jacket in the new collection.
Kickstarter is a well known fundraising tool for technology startups and game creators. But it also has helped to raise over $36 million for fashion projects. HauteButch’s founder wants to give the customers the power to vote through their pledges what fashion products should be included in the new collection.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
