Melissa Millan stands out at business conferences. It's her smartly-tailored shirt. At first it has a banker's look, but a brightly lined collar gives it a different vibe. Millan turns heads when wearing designs from her own company Androgyny.
After years of suffering ill-fitting models, she's made what herself the perfect shirt--what she calls a men's aesthetic remade for the female form. The resemblance to banking attire isn't surprising, since Millan has worked in investment banking and is now finishing off her MBA--while she starts her new company.
Originally, she designed the shirts with queer women in mind, but now has found that lots of women want the same look of a power shirt--that makes them feel comfortable and confident.
