I was introduced to Dr. Barbara King 1n the late 90s, after having visited the boutique she previously owned in the Galleria Mall in Atlanta. Her boutique specialized in clothing for women with special sizing needs and it was a source of joy for her to be able to offer beautiful garments to women while she encouraged them to love and value their uniqueness. She shared that she was very sad when her travel schedule dictated that she had to close it.
Because of her daring sense of fashion and her love of color, it was always fun to design for Dr. Barbara. Having designed for her for many years, I was honored when she shared with me her desire to have her own clothing line. After many discussions and almost two-years of development, I am proud to introduce the Barbara King Collection.
This collection of made-to-order leather garments and accessories is made of 100% lamb leather, available in a variety of colors. The beauty in offering made-to-order garments is that there are no limitations to size. The Barbara King Collection is designed for ALL women because, much like the butterfly, we come in many shapes, sizes, and heights, yet each of us possesses our own unique beauty. We do offer standard sizes 8-24; however, we also offer custom sizing, and our garments can be scaled for women from petite to very tall. Order online or call us. We’ll be happy to assist!
We sincerely hope you will enjoy this collection as much as we have enjoyed creating it!

As a child growing, up I was always attracted to the beauty and flight of butterflies. Butterflies represent the few creatures in nature that show the transformation of forms from the larva (or egg), to the caterpillar, into the cocoon, to its ultimate succession as the beautiful, colorful butterfly. The butterfly eventually leaves its cocoon, in celestial beauty and love, to continue its life’s work. The butterfly, for me, symbolizes my ability to go through profound changes with renewal and rebirth.
The Collection features an assortment of garments and accessories that feature artistic renderings of butterflies. From each sale of items in the collection, ten percent (10%) will be donated to charities that assist women and children affected by domestic violence.
The artwork for the initial collection was titled “Grace in Flight” in recognition of the many, many women who, each year, gather the courage to walk away, and begin the process of healing and transformation. I continue my own transformation through this latest venture - the Barbara King Collection.
Love, Peace and Butterflies,
