Summary: HauteButch addresses the needs of tomboys, butch women, androgynous straight women and transmen interested in wearing high quality male clothing that fits female figures.

HauteButch, a California based fashion company, has been known for its innovative designs that prove that being stylish doesn't always require a dress and high heels. The firm, 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.

"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.

HauteButch is designed to bridge the gap for these women, between their selves, lifestyles, and values. It provides cutting-edge androgynous looks and sizzling style that empower women who prefer a fitted, menswear inspired look. Hautebutch clothes make you feel good, comfortable and confident.

"To be honest, the concept of HAUTEBUTCH was created with me in mind. I am that woman. We are proud, capable women that are in need of our very own unique fashion expression. This vision is about so much more than fashion or clothing; it is a revolution in the power of choice. Every woman deserves clothes that fit and empower her." shares Karen the idea behind her brand.

On October 15, HauteButch is launching a campaign on Kickstarter in order to raise 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: a signature silk bowtie, a jersey tee, a sophisticated pair of watch cufflinks to a tuxedo shirt or a GOTHAM jacket among others. 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, including those for the LGBT community. 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.
