HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY!
In 1908, 15,000 women took to the streets of New York to protest shorter hours, better pay and
voting rights. The following year National Women’s Day was announced in honour of the strikes, and it went global. The first international women’s day was held in 1911 and is still widely celebrated by women everywhere today.
From work breakfasts, luncheons, brunch and dinners, international women’s day brings us together and reminds us just how great we really are.
DRESSING TO EMPOWER
The way we dress has dramatically changed over the years. Gone are the days of restricting corsets and long petticoat skirts as we now welcome pant suits and relaxed yet tailored feminine styles.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to choosing your own personal empowerment outfit as it’s really what you feel most confident and comfortable in. Distinguish which lengths you feel at your best, and which
areas of the body you wish to highlight most.
Wearing prints and colour also embody's femininity and can help to boost sprit and unlock a confidence within.
Whether it’s for a job interview, post baby, milestone birthday, post surgery or just to add a little pep in your step, find
something you love and wear it with confidence and pride.
Fashion is a powerful tool, it has come so far with us, and allows us to be unique and express ourselves daily.
WOMEN IN BUISNESS
One of women’s longest battles has been equal rights in the
workplace, and even though we have come a long way, we still have some to go. Dressing for the office can feel daunting, but it doesn’t have to. Let your personality shine through with prints and colour matched back with tailored lines and relaxed styles that mean business.
Most offices will get together for an international women’s day event or office breakfast to celebrate their achievements. Getting the team together, dressing up and celebrating each other’s successes is a key part of driving the international women’s day movement and keeping the message going.
We love the Selby Dress (as pictured) for the perfect office outfit. It's professional, semi tailored for structure and comfortable with its stretch jersey fabric.
STATEMENTS THROUGH ACCESSORIES
Accessories can talk louder than your outfit, it’s just a
matter of working out what you are trying to say.
Oversized belts can bring a feeling of empowerment at the office, whilst statement jewels bring about confidence and beauty for evenings and events.
The latest SACHA DRAKE autumn collection is named after an assortment of the late Queen Elizabeth’s brooches that were used to send subtle messages though her fashion, also known as sartorial diplomacy. Messages of peace, compassion, and unity were displayed through the brooches and as the longest reigning monarch and a female, we think that deserves a tribute.
