Women’s Equality Day. Dresses designed for Independent Women.

26th August is a day proclaimed each year to celebrate Women’s rights. It commemorates 26th August 1920, when votes to women officially became part of the US constitution.

Being a strong, independent woman means being able to find happiness on your own. It means learning to express who you are and who you want to become. What you wear and how you feel in your clothes contributes greatly to your self-esteem. Colours also play a huge part of what makes a woman feel independent.

Red is a colour that can’t be ignored when thinking about empowering yourself. It is associated with strength, positivity and warmth. From iconic red soles of Christian Louboutin’s shoes to the glamorous gowns on the red carpet, this colour is sure to turn heads.

Our Kiara Red is a stunning collaboration between Stokes Thompson and Melbourne designer Hanni. It is silk georgette featuring a lace cut-out on the back as well as small pleating around the waist, giving this dress amazing fall and movement.

Mozelle Red comprises silk georgette and has also been collaborated between Stokes Thompson and Melbourne designer Hanni. It’s pleating over the bust creates a flattering detailed look, while the gathering under the bust gives this dress stylish fall and movement.

Both of these dresses would empower any woman and make them feel confident at their chosen event.

For something a little shorter, why not take a look at our Rose Garden Red, this beautiful knee length dress has been designed and made in Australia. It has a feature neckline and details red lace. It would suit any bridesmaid, cocktail or race day attire.

Red is a versatile colour representing power and prestige. When looking at today’s association between red and power, we continue to see its connection. The Oscars roll out its ‘red carpet’, which is and only made available to the most prestigious individuals who are allowed to grace the walk.

Purple is also a colour not to be overlooked when thinking dignity and purpose. It signifies self-respect and unswerving steadfastness to a cause.

Alicia Iris Long is a unique, floor length gown, made and designed in Australia. It is made of Iris silk and features a V-neck bust and silk sleeves.
