A Word from the Designer
From the desk of Rena
As a Brown graduate and entrepreneur, I spent years feeling as if I needed to separate my intellect and innate sensuality when I walked through the world. I felt that in corporate settings all signs leading to me being a "woman" needed to be masked in order to be taken seriously.
I was a business owner by day and a woman by night.
I even went so far as to not wear make-up and to dress down in certain scenarios in order to make other people feel more comfortable; I wanted to fit a mold I thought they wanted me to fill. What I came to realize is that once I tapped in to that abundant feminine strength, it easily integrated into my life. It is not something to be shut on and off, but a natural and normal aspect of being human.
As I shed that untruth, I also realized that I was much better received standing in my power and truth than I ever was pretending it wasn’t there. I discovered that clients thought me no less qualified because I wore make-up, could be sexy, took pole classes, dated, or started a line with seductive undertones. My truth opened up dialogues and created a much closer bond than I ever could have imagined.
When we embrace and fully own all of who we are, we are in our power. And I'm not referring to the masculine concept we’ve all familiar with, but the equally powerful and distinctive feminine power that resides in all of us. For me, the accessories I create are daily reminders to own and love that feminine strength, beauty, and sensuality that all work together, seamlessly integrating into every facet of our life.
