Masculine Fashion and Lifestyle Brand of Products for Women & Transmen

Amazing things Karen's made
HAUTEBUTCH is amazing.
Our designs embrace the clean lines, masculine
details and sharp aesthetic that define
traditional menswear, attentive to finishes
that fit women and transmen.

Trendy fashion brands have been creating a
diluted version of apparel and lifestyle
products for the
LGBTQ community for years.

They lack the right team and conviction,
from product development to marketing,
necessary for the
creation of a diversely gender fluid
collection geared toward addressing the
needs and solves the problems associated
with our demographic.

We endeavor to create amazingly handsome,
even fierce apparel that undoubtedly makes
the wearer, the star of the show.
The only option available to our customer base
was to shop in the men's dept where they were
unwelcome and judged in many cases.

Recommendations

Mutale Nkonde Leader at Two Weeks Notice

I have never run across a site like this and if SMASHD is about culture they should explore this market. Black women are responsible for $894 Billion of consumer spending this market is waiting for someone to take it over. Karen has an abundance mindset and reached out to us. I want to work alongside people who want to build and she seems like one of those people.

Noah Harris

My experience working with Karen Roberts is that she exemplifies entrepreneurial vision, determination and grit. Given the trailblazing and innovative fashion/culture traction she’s cultivated so far with HauteButch, I have no doubt that she would generate amazing results from participating in the SMASHD Labs accelerator program.

Arlan Hamilton Co-Founder at Interlu.de recommended HAUTEBUTCH where Karen is Co-Founder

Karen is innovative, focused, and determined. I have known her for more than 2 years and have never seen her waver. There's a quiet drive that instills confidence in those around her, coupled with a seemingly endless amount of creativity. Looking forward to all she has planned for us!
