International Women's Day 2021
International Women's Day calls for us all to be #ChooseToChallenge and ShopStyle agrees that equality is not a women's issue, but a community issue. Drawn from the notion of 'Collective Individualism', our core values empower individuality through style on a daily basis. We're excited to partner with thousands of influencers that are powering their passion, and with retailers that are on the forefront of change for women's empowerment and sustainable practices. Ahead you will find a group of female led brands that are challenging the status quo and forging change.
