'Sometimes The King is a Woman'

Hey Guys & Dolls,
Moving on from the AW16/17 trend report, I thought I’d create a series titled 'Act Like A Lady, Dress Like A Man' based on the Battle of the Sexes trend illustrated in the trend report.
The first look in the series is titled ‘Sometimes the King is a Woman.’ When I was a little girl, I read all the fairy tales and watched the movies and aspired to being a princess/damsel in distress waiting for this knight in shining armour to come and save me. As I grew older, the narrative would change slightly based on my cognitions, my environment, and my circumstance and as the narrative changed, so did my knight in shining armour.
‘Sometimes the King is a Woman’ is a phrase that I live by because it gives me the opportunity to save myself everyday. Sometimes it is from others, other times, it is from myself. Regardless of which situation is presented, it is my opportunity to be empowered, to govern, to break barriers, to conquer fears, to establish the kingdom I want; A kingdom where I’m not a victim, a kingdom where I am not dependent on anyone or anything to save me because sometimes the king isn’t just any woman. Sometimes the King is me.
