We were excited when HauteButch contacted us with an opportunity to review items from their clothing line. “The HAUTEBUTCH Collection is created for women that choose to wear fitted menswear inspired fashion and footwear, whether on the street, in the board room or on the dance floor.”
Founded by designer Karen Roberts, found that many butch women relate closely to menswear and are often frustrated by the lack of fitted, stylish clothing and the limited choices that promote a feeling of confidence and power.
HAUTEBUTCH provides cutting-edge androgynous looks and sizzling style that empower women that prefer a fitted, menswear inspired look. Our fashion collection presents tough on the outside yet tender to the heart of the butch identity.
HauteButch has generously sent us a fitted shirt and bow tie which Ledcat will be reviewing (check back next Weds to see what she thinks.) Ledcat self-identifies as “soft butch” and does appreciate menswear – as a petite woman, it is often a challenge to find clothing that fits her style and her size.
In the meantime, we are thrilled that our friends at HauteButch are offering YOU a chance to win items from their collection. We are launching a new raffle – 3 prizes, 1 prize per winner.
