Hi my name is Maddi Racine. I am a designer and business owner working hard to make the positive change I see that is needed in the world through design. I work to do this while making sure to always be learning and growing along the way.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 

At some point along the way women were taught to use passive language when we speak instead of assertive language. We often don't even realize how passive the language we actually use is. We apologize more than we should and tend to defend and explain ourselves. What we forget is... we don't have to. WE DONT HAVE TO EXPLAIN OURSELVES. This series of clothing is the start of my artistic exploration of assertive speech when it comes to women and self-empowerment.
