Kelly B Couture - Bringing sexy back

Sexy and ethical are not traditionally synonymous, but times are changing and Kelly B Couture has proven that ethical fashion can be as sassy and chic as the mainstream fashion industry, without the dubious environmental and production processes. Kelly B Couture is the invention of San Francisco based designer, Kelly Barry, whose love for fashion and design stretches back to her youth, when she was permanently attached to the family sewing machine.

Kelly spent three years at CCAC (The California College of Arts and Crafts) and upon graduation she entered a career as a production manager and designer for a supplier of organic cotton garments and fabric. This experience led to her establishing the environmentally friendly and highly fashionable Kelly B Couture. Her passion is to create comfortable and unique clothing for the conscious consumer. In real terms this means utilising organic and other natural fibres and ensuring fair labour practises in the production of garments. Kelly’s first organic cotton line debuted in spring 2006 and her current spring collection is colourful, urban, sassy and sexy and all this down to a girl with moxie.
