In South Africa, Woman’s Day is a day to commemorate the powerful women who marched against the pass laws of the apartheid government in 1956.
Since 1994, this day has been celebrated in recognition of these women, as well as the incredible South African women that followed (and are following) after them.
The fashion industry is a women-focused trade that benefits and lives on because of women; however a recent study in the US showed that although the labour and ideas of women elevate the fashion industry, it is still largely run by men (Marc Bain in Quarizy 2018) .
This month we want to recognise some of South Africa’s leading women in media and fashion. In celebration of Women’s Month we spoke to 9 of our favourite women in fashion about the progress of women in the industry and what fashion means to them.
We’d like to wish all women in every sector of society a wonderful women’s day.
