Puvithel

Puvithel is a alternative fashion designer who makes and designs original handmade jewelry, accessories, clothing and handbags for J-fashion and alternative styles. While currently based in Pittsburgh, Puvithel started in Atlanta in 2015.

Puvithel is about unabashed, self-expression and spans many styles, including punk, gothic, lolita, and menhera. However, regardless of style Puvithel's items are loud, and are inspired by the in-your-face aesthetic of American gothic fashion. Expression in the form of fashion can help people, and Puvithel tries to express that idea in each item. Every series has its own style and narrative to aid you in telling your own story
