|Jenica and Cathy|
She began thinking about what she was going to wear and realized it didn't matter how stylish and chic she was, because the weather would force her to put a drab trench coat over her ensemble. "Why was their not stylish rain gear for fashion-conscious women?" she wondered.
A little kernel of an idea was planted. And so it began. Cathy had a background in personal shopping and styling. Her daughter-in-law, Jenica, had a background in business and retail. They saw a niche in the market that wasn't being filled and decided to take the bull by the horns and create their own line. The result is She Reigns.

Their debut collection includes four silhouettes named for fashionable jet-setters in their lives, the roomy Patricia cape (oh yes, I will be sporting this on the lacrosse fields!), the rocker-inspired Alex, named for Catherine's daughter who's an aspiring actress in L.A., the ladylike Jenica with a beautiful ruched waist and longer hem in back and the Catherine, a form-fitted, above-the-knee trench with multiple quilted pockets. What takes the coats from good to great is the attention to details like horn toggle closures, tortoiseshell buttons, and bold-colored piping. I'm hoping a future collection will have a Cynthia jacket in it. Stay tuned...
