The inspiration behind the Feminine and Fierce Collection:

Imagine for a moment that the ‘glass ceiling’ could be dissolved by women who understand, embrace, and celebrate being powerfully Feminine and Fierce all at once…

The magnificent truth is our femininity holds a timeless power. We must step back into it, not away from it, to realize our most heroic and joy-filled lives.

Femininity is our deepest source of inner strength and resilience, not a weakness.

Femininity is our inherent power, not our insufficiency.

Fierceness is the imperative edge we must acquire to perform with unapologetic certainty in our life.

The moment has come to step out of your box and dare more by choosing YOU!

Dare more to be truthfully you by reconnecting to what you have sacrificed for so long, the woman in you who is painfully needing to come out …

the feminine part of you who screams to fuse the fierce warrior within!
