#BeYourOwn Meets Lioness Awaken
Q. BeYourOwn: Can you tell us about the thought and design process behind your collection?
A. Lioness Awaken: Growing up, I was felt like a warrior. I used to watch shows like Xena: Warrior Princess and I resonated with her character. Most other shows depicted women as damsels that needed to be saved. Hence, when I thought of naming my collection the image of a Lioness sprung to mind.
Lioness Awaken® is symbolic of a woman that is brave, bold and can’t be tamed. However, I decided to make my collection unisex. The thought of seeing a man wearing a t-shirt that says Lioness Awaken® makes me smile. It’s such a powerful statement. I do not believe that men should be shut out of the feminist movement. But that’s a conversation for another day.
