At Top Buttons, we believe a young woman can express her unique style in a way that does not have to compromise values or deny personality.
Top Buttons, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization building self-esteem through fashion in young women, operating out of our Boutique and Office Space in Central Florida.
We relate to the everyday young lady who wants to be trendy, fashionable, and up to date with her wardrobe. With our resources we filter out the unnecessary sexually-related material that is commonly associated with the fashion industry and showcase contextually modest versions of current fashion trends.
