Inspired by the regalia donned by powerful queens and female leaders throughout history, Doyennécommunicates feminine power through unique shape and soft structure. A doyenné is a woman who is the most respected person in a particular field; a female leader. The look was designed with the modern doyenné woman in mind, one who has embraced her femininity and individual power. As she clothes herself in these garments, it is my hope that they mirror and amplify the inner strength and energy of the wearer. When she walks into the room her commanding presence radiates from within and all turn to look in awe of this doyenné. For the modern doyenné, this design was created with transformability in mind: a garment that could go from cape to skirt in one swift movement. The silhouette of the outfit was designed to accentuate the wearer’s form while communicating strength and power.
