Celebrating Female-Owned Brands

To celebrate International Women's Day, there's no better time to kick off our shoes and applaud the incredible achievements of female-owned brands in the footwear industry. 

With each step, we honour the creativity, resilience, and innovation of these female-owned brands, whose dedication to quality and style knows no bounds.

See by Chloé is the youthful and contemporary diffusion line of the iconic French fashion house Chloe, launched in 2001 by Gaby Aghion.

She called this the 'luxury pret-a-porter' and thus, the Pret-a-Porter (Ready-To-Wear) market we know today, was born.
