Tomorrow it’s International Women’s Day, and to celebrate we’ve chatted with some of the fiercest female influencers on the Gram. We caught up with Kitty Cowell, Modest Mira and Ginney Noa to get the lowdown on what International Women’s Day means to them, as well as the inspirational females they look up to.  


Hey Kitty! Are you doing anything to celebrate International Women’s Day?
I want to do something for International Women’s Day but right now I haven’t got plans!

Who is your favourite empowering female?
As an all-rounder Emma Watson is amazing! But I love Margaret Zang too. She’s so influential to me as a fashion icon and businesswoman. 

Who is your biggest female style icon?
That would be Gwen Stefani - she’s so unique and fierce with her style. 

Do you think that streetwear is still a male dominated scene? Do think this will change in the future?
The streetwear scene has changed massively over the last 5 years. It’s still male dominated, but now there are so many strong, successful and intelligent women out there changing the scene. The amount of brands that have unisex or female collections now is at least double to what it was back then.

Hey Amira! What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
International Women’s Day for me is a sense of liberation and empowerment, where women are being recognised and celebrated for their social, cultural and political achievements. I feel as though women can join forces, becoming a unit to lift each other up and illustrate what we’re all about. 

It also reminds me of how far women have come, from so many years back. Even though we still have quite a bit to go, we need to stick together and be proud for what we have achieved so far. 

Are there any other female influencers that you’d like to give a shout out to?
I would like to give @kimberlyskinny and @mariaalia a shout out!

If you could raid the wardrobe of three people, who would it be and why?
The first person’s wardrobe I would raid would have to be the ‘line up’ @maya_nilsen and @juliaadang. Their style is absolute goals and I’d pretty much love to wear and style everything they own! 

The second person’s wardrobe I would raid would be @marwaatik. She has an impeccable sense of style - this gal can do street vibes and classiness all in one! Her recent outfits for fashion week were major goals. 

Third would be @sofiarichie - I can’t fault anything she wears and puts together, inspiration from day one! 

Which female has been the biggest inspiration to you over the years?
My biggest inspiration has got to be my mother. No matter what has been thrown at my mum she has always managed to pick herself back up, remain positive and go for it. Because of her influence I have taken on the same attitude and will forever work and fight for what I want - and who’s always behind me encouraging me? My mum. 

I would also say that Oprah Winfrey is an inspiration of mine. She has definitely shown us what women are capable of, and even with the odds stacked against her and the hardships she has faced, she has become one of the most influential and powerful women in the world.

Hey Ginney! What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
International Women’s Day for me means to support each other and send out positive vibes! 

If you could choose your three favourite style icons, who would they be?
Aleali May, Ann Marie Hoang and Aaliyah. 

Do you think streetwear is still a male dominated scene? Do you think this will change in the future? 
I don’t see it that way, same when it comes to sneakers. So many girls have a banging wardrobe and there’s so much more for the females to rock AND we can wear men’s stuff too!

Who’s wardrobe would you raid if you could?
Ann Marie Hoang!
