feel good feminist fashion

I'm Kate, and I founded Wildess in November of 2015. I believe that fashion statements are feminist statements. I design and construct clothes and accessories to remind you that you're a badass bitch. The growth of this business has been a dream come true. Wildess is truly backed by the raddest women around, and I've even been lucky enough to get some great press from Bustle, HuffPost Women, and Buzzfeed.

Wildess Kate Urich Handmade Pittsburgh Studio

Every piece is handmade to order with love and high quality materials in my Pittsburgh studio. Sometimes I employ the help of my studio assistant (a pit bull named Orchid) and local lady artists.

I believe in walking the walk, so 20% of all profits are donated to nonprofit organizations that help women and marginalized people live their best lives.

(I also talk the talk in my weekly Feel Good Feminism newsletter.)

When I'm not busy building my empire, you can find me drinking coffee and working with arts organizations in my beloved hometown of Pittsburgh. I'm the oldest of four siblings (so I'm naturally a #boss), and I live with my partner and our adopted fur baby.
