Our Purpose

Personal and Collective Empowerment

We want women to exercise their agency, achieve equality and gain access to all they need to thrive. It starts with what a woman chooses to wear to express and celebrate herself and extends to every aspect of our female-driven business. We advocate for women. We use our platform to share women’s stories. We channel our economic power into opportunities for women. The world we want to see is the company we choose to be.

A special collaboration:

The Myanmar Project

In partnership with the Ostro Fayre Share Myanmar Foundation, we were honoured to work with a women's collective in Mandalay, Myanmar on the co-creation of a special sparkle colour, Shimmer. Featuring the women's artisan skills and celebrating their cultural practices, this project promoted economic independence by creating ethical, meaningful work.
