While currently based in Pittsburgh, Puvithel started in Atlanta back in 2015! Puvithel is about unabashed, self-expression and spans many styles, including punk, goth, lolita, and menhera. However regardless of style, Puvithel's items are loud,inspired by the in-your-face aesthetic of American goth 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."
