Happy International Women's Day!
As we celebrate women this March 8th for International Women's Day, we want to reflect on all of the empowering and amazing women in our lives. As a store, we support countless female designers who have their own inspiring stories, while providing a selection of clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories for the women surrounding us.
We would like to reflect on three inspiring women today who have amazing accomplishments in their lives thus far.
Carolina Herrera is a Venezuelan fashion designer who has always had an eye for style at a young age. She began her career in 1965 working as a publicist for Emilio Pucci before moving to New York City in 1980. Once in New York, she became a widely known public figure and regular on the best-dressed list while also creating her self-titled brand. Since 1980, the Carolina Herrera fashion line has proved to be one of timeless style, having designed for four first ladies.

Tamara Mellon is a British luxury fashion entrepreneur known for her role as the co-founder of footwear company Jimmy Choo. After setting up the company with factories in Italy, Tamara’s company grew quickly to over 100 wholesale clients. She announced in 2013 that her brand would not buy from companies without female executives - a statement to the world about female empowerment!

Tory Burch is another boss woman who has made a name entirely for herself in the fashion industry. She first launched her label in a Nolita based clothing store that sold out in the first day open in 2004. She has since expanded her brand to over 300 stores with fragrance, sportswear, and beauty lines. In the past year, she continues to spread her wisdom to future designers and women in fashion - the Tory Burch Company and the School of Fashion at Parsons School of Design announced a five year multidisciplinary educational partnership!
