We hope that butch, androgynous and trans* style seekers can consider this label a “go to destination” for all things fashion and fierce.
As a designer of “menswear for women”- having a unique style of my very own, I’ve known the oppression of feeling invisible and the impact of that on my self esteem. Global fashion brands have ignored me/us for years – our style aesthetic challenges the “norm” and it hasn’t been important enough to them. It is important to our team and so is the customer experience.
At the helm is KMichelle (aka Karen),Founder, Designer and CEO of the company.
A U.S. Navy Veteran and entrepreneur, Karen sits on the SRJC Advisory Board for the Fashion Studies Program. She has contributed countless hours to what was the Sonoma County WAR, TAPP AND CAPP programs and volunteer security for local “Take Back The Night” rallies.
Each day we’re inspired to build a great company because of these struggles- we strive to change minds and hearts to realize that fierce is the person wearing the apparel.
Karen is MomK to her awesome niece and nephew, Nonna to her beautiful grandson and wife to her amazing wife.We endeavor to create a new standard in fashion…..and we hope you’ll Join Us
