Roxane Kyte’s biggest joy in life is being a mother. When her four daughters grew up and their friends started getting married, she found herself making aprons for their bridal showers. “My daughter, Brittany [Dishner], suggested we start selling them,” Kyte says. She was skeptical at first. “There were already thousands of aprons on the market,” she says. “I said, ‘If we’re going to do this, we have to be completely different.’” And Couture Aprons was born. “Couture puts you in a different market,” Kyte says. “The high-end ones are really made like a dress.” You can even style the aprons and wear them out. “You have to be seen in them, that’s the point.” Each comes with a custom blinged-out headpiece crafted by Dishner. “Who would’ve thought aprons could go down a runway?” Kyte says. “But they really are very luxurious.”
