"Flawed but confident. Independent yet filled with love. Graceful yet bold and fierce in their resolve. Despite the struggle, they are out there seizing the day. Making things happen and working their magic to make the world a better place. They are the real life superwomen whom we come across with everyday."
When we walked into FitFlop’s 10th year anniversary celebration and Spring/Summer 2017 collection presentation, we thought it was purely going to be a night of style and glamour. Yes, it indeed was, with their stellar lineup of new footwear including knit shoes and cute Oxford pairs, but besides that, we were also treated to the stories of inspiring women who are using their feminine strength to make everyday life better.
We couldn’t have been more inspired by the winners of the #ForSuperwomen promo, an online competition which asked women from different countries around Asia to nominate the superwomen in their lives. That, and the brand's new CSR effort, ‘Women Build’, the initiative aimed at building strong foundations for women and families across the globe.
“When I imagine superwomen I think of mothers. I think of all the women who are taking care of their children, their parents and contributing to society, working and providing for their families,” comments Thurman.
