Workin’ It (Part 2) 2009

The Rest of the Best Of 2009’s Red Hot Entrepreneurs

Niki Cutler
Owner, dykesinthecity

Co-created by trendsetter Niki Cutler, dykesinthecity (DITC) as a form of self-expression and a fashion statement for gay women nationally and internationally, DITC has grown from a “made up social group” in Baltimore, Maryland, to a lifestyle clothing company. A former teacher and counselor, Cutler always knew she wanted to do something to change the world. She says, “I knew that teaching just didn’t feel like the end all to me. I began this company quite by accident and it has become the world changing piece to the puzzle of my own life.” Ever expanding and evolving with dyke culture, now in its sixth year, DITC sells their line at festivals from coast-to-coast, traveling to around 30 different cities from May through October. Cutler also takes pride in the fact that almost all products are made in America and some from recycled materials, without compromising quality. Visit for more information.
