Empowered Women by Cleonice

In this section, we will continuously update you with profiles on Empowered Women who we feel encompass the values we strive for here at CLEONICE. 
We are hopeful that our stories enrich our made-to-fit service, which aims to eliminate the concept of sizes dictated by factory logic marketing campaigns designed to boost profits and not women's confidence.  The size and shape women chose to be is their choice. We are all different and at CLEONICE we believe this should be celebrated.

Our aim of sharing these STORIES is to give our readers a sense of reassurance – the same objective we strive for in the design of our collections, a reassurance about shape and beauty.
Every path is unique to the person who lives it, there is no secret formula.  We all have vulnerabilities and strengths – it´s the balance between both that makes us unique.
Maybe with this reassurance we can free up some time to focus on who we want to become, and what we need to become, instead of simply becoming who society deems we should.
