To mark International Women’s Day 2022, we are celebrating five incredible women who have overcome ingrained biases and adversity to achieve their success.
For the month of March, we will be using our platform to share the voices of Zara Wong, Jasmin Amma, Heather Inwood, Anjilla Seddeqi & Georgie Abay through the lens of an all female team.

“I used to go and watch runway when I was younger and I would never see somebody that looked similar to me on the runway, there was always this distance between my passion for the fashion industry, and always wanting to express myself through clothes and through style.”

“I’ve been fortunate enough to work in many workplaces where it’s been predominantly women, and so in my 20s I really saw women ‘doing it all’ – big careers, full social lives and families.”

“Fashion to me means being able to make women feel confident, I know that when I have confidence I feel like I can conquer the world. Yves Saint Laurent summed it up perfectly when he said ‘I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful but also to reassure them, give them confidence.”Heather Wears Quendra in Umber
“I have always been inspired by strong women. Those that have had to deal with the wrongs that have been done to them in their life. The big decision-makers who have not let the challenges stunt them, but have continued to forge ahead.”

“It’s one day of the year where we get really vocal. I like to think we’re vocal about what we believe in year-round, but this day gives a voice to people who might not have had a platform.”
“Women make Wittner so it’s only natural that we want to support them on every step of their journey. Wittner is a female-led business and we each have our own tales to tell regarding the hurdles we’ve faced to get to where we are. I think our experiences as women and the stories we’ve heard from our community, make this year’s IWD message very close to our hearts.”
