International Women's Day: Celebrating NADINE MERABI Women

To recognise International Women’s Day, we will be celebrating the women of NADINE MERABI. We truly appreciate all the hard work, commitment, and creativity of the women in business at MERABI. So we thought there was no better time than now to recognise their incredible qualities and achievements. So, celebrate women inspiring women on International Women’s Day with us here!

When is International Women’s Day?

Every year, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th. The day is all about celebrating the successes and challenging the injustices of women around the world. Of course, challenging injustices against women would take up far more than one day of the year but International Women’s Day is still an important way of amplifying the voices of women and helping to provide a step in the right direction.

Each International Women’s Day features its own theme. In 2023, the theme is #EmbraceEquity. The focus is on gender equity, and how it needs to be part of every society’s DNA. Everybody must embrace equity to help create a fair and more equal world for all. Each one of us can play an active role in supporting and embracing equity within our own sphere of influence, too.

We can do this by challenging gender stereotypes, drawing attention to bias, confronting discrimination, and seeking out inclusion. Collective activism promotes change, and that is what International Women’s Day in 2023 is all about.

International Women’s Day colours

Not only is there a theme for International Women’s Day, but there are also colours attributed to it. The colours for this famous day - which started in 1908 - are purple, green, and white. If you’d like to celebrate and recognise this special day, try to wear the colours on March 8th too!

The official International Women’s Day website states: “Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolises hope. White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept.”.

If you’re looking for an outfit to wear in these colours, check out NADINE MERABI’s very own GIGI iridescent dress. This structured one-shoulder, figure-hugging dress with an asymmetric floor-sweeping drape creates a high-impact look for your next social occasion - perfect if you’re attending one in March.

Women in business at NADINE MERABI

As we recognise women inspiring women on International Women’s Day, we thought it would be best to focus on the driving force behind NADINE MERABI. It comes from two incredible women: Blue Wilson and Nadine Merabi. These two fabulous individuals come together in perfect harmony with business, design, and entrepreneurial ingenuity.

MERABI’s creative director, Nadine Merabi, is a self-taught seamstress and businesswoman who places a heavy emphasis on women inspiring women and making them feel confident when wearing her pieces.
