Duchess was lovingly created by Founding Duchess, Seyta Selter, in 2005. Growing rapidly each year since its inception, Duchess is now sustained and maintained with the lifeblood of a select few individuals of unique qualifications.
Lady Katie Reynolds, Duchess of OrderBorn and raised in the dirty south (well, Florida), Katie made her way across the US to Oregon, with her penchant for Project Pat and well-made biscuits still intact. Diversity reigns in Katie's family, and she considers herself Irish, Polish, Korean, Japanese and German by adoption and association. This seemingly cacophonous mixture did well to lend itself to the array of hats Katie now wears proudly as manager. Besides consulting with clients, crunching the numbers, and managing the showroom, she’s also in her own right a business owner, designer, pug lover, vintage maniac, textile shredder and reluctant vocalist. Katie is happiest when busy...and organized, don't forget organized!
Having succeeded in dominating two-thirds of the the US coastline, Katie finds herself settled in Portland with unabashed joy and thankfulness, although she will always have Florida in her heart and the south in her mouth. Some things will never change. Now she just knows what good coffee tastes like.
