9 of the most inspirational women in fashion #IWD

In honour of International Women’s Day, we thought it would be rude not to list some of the most inspirational women in fashion.

Coco Chanel

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”



‘We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.’


Amal Clooney

Inspiring and always beautifully dressed, human rights lawyer and activist Amal Clooney couldn’t not be on our list!



Emma Watson

“If you want to run for Prime Minister, you can. If you don’t, that’s wonderful, too. Shave your armpits, don’t shave them, wear flats one day, heels the next. These things are so irrelevant and surface to what it is all really about, and I wish people wouldn’t get caught up in that. We want to empower women to do exactly what they want, to be true to themselves, to have the opportunities to develop.”

Angelina Jolie

“Make bold choices and make mistakes. It’s all those things that add up to the person you become.”


Grace Coddington

“For me, one of the most important aspects of my work is to give people something to dream about, just as I used to dream all those years ago as a child looking at beautiful photographs. I still weave dreams, finding inspiration wherever I can and looking for romance in the real, not the digital world”


Victoria Beckham

“If you can get your head around your dream, it means your dream isn’t big enough.”


Alexa Chung

“Boys say they don’t mind how you get your hair done. But then they leave you for someone with really great standard girl hair and the next thing you know you’re alone with a masculine crop crying into your granola.”


Lady Gaga

“Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.”
