Recently while chatting over cocktails, my friend and I delved into what we believe the Modern Woman is. I work alongside many influential women who are making waves in their respective industries, whose strength & dedication inspire me, daily. They’ve inspired political movements; motivate social change & creative influence. And in this season of change, where we’re experiencing one of the biggest cultural revolutions since the 60s, we are seeing that reflect on the runways and through street-style. Vintage is not dead, in fact the Modern Woman is embracing it – the colours, the bold patterns and the sense of singularity & self-expression you feel from wearing it. She knows how to seamlessly inject vintage pieces within her look, she dares to experiment and sets trends in the process.

As a stylist, Sarr really inspires me. Both her work and personal-style, seem so effortless. I love that she doesn’t shy away from bold prints & colours and incorporates some serious statement shoes.

Giovanna, or as we all know her : @bat_gio, perfects cool glamour. Not only is she incredibly talented, she has this vivacious way about her, comfortable but eccentric. Her mix of old with new, is experimental and always so fun. She’s a risk taker, a true Modern Woman!

Lauren San Domingo, Co-founder and creative director of Moda Operandi.

Lauren always looks polished & so well put together, even when hunting for next season’s emerging designer for Moda Operandi. I love that she can mix pieces effortlessly, encouraging not only full-floral print, or even just a simple mac.
