Our Story



I’m Cicily Swanson, the heart and soul behind our clothing brand, designed to empower and inspire women every day. With over 25 years in wholesale apparel and retail sales, and more than two decades as a wardrobe stylist, my journey in fashion is deeply rooted.

My professional path has been rich with experience, having worked as an assistant to some of the industry’s top stylists, including Tameka Foster, who dressed icons like Usher and Lauryn Hill, and Camille Morrison, known for her work with Arrested Development. I’ve also contributed to major marketing campaigns for renowned brands like Macy’s and Ralph Lauren through Crews Agency.

This extensive background has endowed me with a keen eye for quality and a knack for designing garments that are not only stylish and comfortable but also enduring and statement-making. My academic journey at American Intercontinental University, where I earned a dual degree in fashion design and marketing, has further honed my skills in crafting apparel that stands out.

“cicidionne” was born out of a personal need for comfortable yet chic loungewear. Frustrated by the limited options available while working in showroom sales in Atlanta, I launched our line with a clear vision: to create maxi dresses and loungewear from ‘feel good’ fabrics adorned with inspirational messages.

This vision became even more poignant when my daughter was diagnosed with autism, reinforcing my mission to inspire women to navigate life’s challenges with confidence and grace.

Today, we are proud to offer a line of loungewear that combines nostalgic and uplifting messaging with the softest cotton jersey and jersey blend materials. Designed for ease, our pieces are free from zippers and closures, making them perfect for everyday wear.

Join us in embracing effortless style and comfort, and feel inspired every step of your journey with us.
