Happy International Women’s Day from Closet London!
March 8th is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. In the spirit of International Women’s Day, we have been celebrating the incredible women who work at Closet London HQ and make all the magic happen. Over on our Instagram, we have been running competitions all week to give back to our lovely customers. We asked some of the women behind the brand about the most influential and inspirational women in their lives. Make International Women's Week your week and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.

Those who leave everything in God’s hands will eventually see God’s hands in everything.

Feeling comfortable in my own skin/clothes/mind. Automatically makes me feel confident. The minute I can relax and be myself is the minute my organic confidence comes out.
What female music artist are you loving now and why?
I have my “all time” empowering women, in my “lifelong” music playlist. All of my absolute favourite, beautiful, smart, sassy women - who were around when I was growing up! I could list them all for hours. However, 2 of them recently performed at the Super Bowl in the US and I stayed up to watch it - JLo & Shakira were AMAZING! I was guilty of a super fan-girl moment, I love them!
