RuffleCon is proud to welcome our latest guest for 2016, American Duchess, purveyors of stunning historically accurate footwear!
American Duchess Company is a small business based in Reno, Nevada, USA. They consist of two overworked lunatics, and a little pack of sleepy, lazy dogs. Lauren started blogging about historical costuming in 2009. It was not until late 2010 that she and Chris came up with the idea to create historically accurate shoes for frustrated costumers worldwide. With their powers of product design, photography, web design, social marketing, programming, graphic arts, and logistical management combined; Chris and Lauren embarked on their first manufacturing adventure, full of peril, miscommunication, and fire. The line has expanded since its inception to include several styles of Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, and 1920s shoes, along with silk stockings and shoe buckles.
The American Duchess team has been kind enough to provide shoes to be featured in the RuffleCon 2016 Fashion Show. They will also be hosting several panels throughout the conference! Stay tuned for more details.
