INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY ( United Nations)

An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender equal world?
Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender equality.

The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”

Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual.

Equality is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

A gender equal world can be healthier, wealthier and more harmonious – so what’s not great about that?

The race is on for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health and wealth … so let’s make it happen. Let’s be #EachforEqual.

Take action

Women’s equality can’t wait. It’s going to take everyone to think and be inclusive – all the time, everywhere.

For International Women’s Day 2020 and beyond, how will you support #EachforEqual?

We are all parts of a whole. Our individual actions, conversations, behaviors and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society. Collectively, we can make change happen. Collectively, we can each help to create a gender equal world.

We can all choose to be #EachforEqual.

Beautiful and Modest, SHENANNZ Brand Proves Fashion is For Everyone

Modest fashion strutted its stuff during London Fashion Week at House of iKons, The Grandeur of Sophia – a show inspired by the art within Turkey’s great cultural context. At the core of The Grandeur of Sophia is a call and an expectation for women’s rights and the promotion of gender equality at work and within the workplace all across the globe.

At the heart of the SHENANNZ brand is a commitment to women’s emancipation and female empowerment. SHENANNZ is a sustainable Pakistan, Swiss and UK based fashion design house. It is driven by the creativity of talented and empowered sisters Shenila Ali, a fashion designer based in Pakistan, and Anila Hussain, a Montessori teacher and Creative stylist based in Switzerland, who have come a long way from where they started.

As sisters, the bond these two women share continues to grow deeper and expand ever further. Their sisterhood is now rooted in changing the context around the world and fighting towards a future through fashion where women’s voices will be heard and women’s rights will be respected. As the creative director, Shenila uses her gift as an artist to bring the intricate patterns and designs of her Eastern heritage into an eclectic fusion couture style of clothing. Anila uses her business background and success as a Montessori international educator to promote the SHENANNZ brand across Europe. The women also have different personal styles, Shenila wearing hijab and whereas Anila does not, to demonstrate how the SHENANNZ brand brings style and fusion to women of many cultural, style, and religious preferences.

The brand SHENNANZ combines their exotic Eastern roots with sharply-tailored and every-day wearable Western clothing. However, this brand isn’t just for Muslim women. It is keeping in mind women of all cultures. It has been said that when fashion embraces diversity the world notices. These clothes appeal to those women looking for unique and exclusive style while remaining covered. The modest styles use luxurious silk from Italy, Turkey, and France and cotton from their homeland Pakistan.

The latest collection features black and white pieces ranging from simple color blocks to intricate and gorgeous embroidery and piping. If you are looking for simple, full coverage clothing or dazzling, trendy and detailed, everyone can find something to suit their individual style. Women of all sizes and colors should feel confident in their clothing and be able to carry themselves elegantly. SHENANNZ models represented ten different nationalities in their latest show, including African, Moldovan, Chinese, Asian, American and Arab in order to highlight how beautiful and graceful the clothing can be on everyone.

No one should be left out of fashion based on size, nationality or religious affiliation. Given the opportunity from House of iKons to showcase this graceful collection, more woman worldwide will be able to connect with SHENANNZ and have access to pieces and clothing that is highly fashionable and modest, a rare combination. They will also be supporting the further empowerment of other women, a cause dear to the sisters of SHENANNZ. Women representing and supporting each other through fashion and clothing is a stepping stone in intersectionality that can be embraced and continued across the globe.

House of iKons February 2018

Hailed as one of the premier shows of the independent scene in London, House of iKons has set a new benchmark for fashion events. With a range of amazing designers from the Philippines, Mainland Europe and of course the UK, Savita Kaye has brought the house down with her team in terms of showcasing talent.

In a few short years, Savita Kaye and her team have created an event to be rivaled.  Set during London Fashion Week, House of iKons is set to be a force to be reckoned with as they set up for the September show.

With designers such as Aandrei David, Adam and Alice, Sharon Bowen Dryden to name but a few showcasing at the event, it’s easy to see why the House of iKons is fast becoming the show to watch for new and emerging talent as well as long-established brands who  are coming to Savita for the best possible platform for their brand.

With more to come from the iKons team over the next year, they are the people to watch for fashion on the independent circuit.

Everything about the House of iKons says luxury and with more designers to come to the stable for the September show the future of fashion events is changing in a positive way.

ShenAnnz speaks about sustainability and foundation

My sister and I represent those who have dared to seize the bull by the horns, stood their own ground for their beliefs and have taken risks to change the norms. Our journey, which was by no means easy. Is now a story of success.“ Anila said…so you can read their story down below.

Would you tell us what does sustainability mean for you?

Being sustainable to us is to grow and let grow ethically. We believe in fair pay and gender equality and to provide equal opportunities for males and females when we hire team members. This is how we believe a business can become sustainable as happy employees make happy clients and together we prosper!

I like an idea with foundation so would you tell us more about it? (For who is the foundation, how does it work…?)

SHENANNZ foundation aspires to raise educated children equipped with moral virtues, who would grow to serve humanity and make the world a better place. It is a community service and social awareness organization, associated with SHENANNZ – the fashion label known for its east-west fusion. We aim to make a difference to the community that we live and work in, focusing on the marginalized sections of society.

For a start, we’ve begun in our own backyard, getting to know the issues of the women workers in our own little factory and their children. The idea is to do something positive, in whatever way possible.

Whether it is engaging with the underprivileged and helping their cause or connecting donors to the needy, our work will encompass different activities. For now, we are just about gearing up for the tasks ahead.

We don’t know where this road leads us. All that we do know is that if we are able to bring smiles to our brothers and sisters and their children, by doing something meaningful, we’ll know we’re doing something right. And we welcome everyone who can help us along this journey.

How do you work? (Together, separate…?)

We work together and separately both. Being based in Pakistan. Shenila handles the creativity and team management whereas Anila is based in Switzerland so she focuses on marketing and business development in EU and Internationally.

Which material are you using?

We use different types of materials depending on the market demand and changing seasons. However, we mostly use pure silks in the majority of our luxury collection.

Do you have any ideas for the next collection? And where do you take the inspiration from?

For our next collection, we plan to rock at House of Ikons once again on 17th Feb 2018. This time it would be about digital prints and handwork with a binding element of black in it. We draw Inspirations. As we travel we look around our surroundings. So that we add elements of various cultures and make fusion as diverse as possible.

What is your biggest success?

The biggest success for us is that being women we made it this far. We became successful entrepreneurs in a society that houses male domination. It seemed like a dream a few years back but we enjoyed our journey against the odds. After all, we successfully registered our brand in U.K Switzerland and Pakistan. Bagging appreciation from people of diverse cultures. That’s what a successful fusion brand us all about!

Founded by Savita Kaye under Lady K Production, House of iKons is now in its fourth year, having successfully drawn in fantastic crowds since its launch in 2014.

Over the years, the iKon brand has developed and flourished with growing success around the world. But remarkably, Savita has remained true to her show’s original concept – to celebrate the new generation of global fashion talent. And 2018 will be no different.

Who to Expect on the iKon Runway

The House of iKons February 2018 London show will welcome amazing designers from around the world to exhibit their collections on the runway.

“Taylor Mai at the age of 8 years of age has a gift; she sees beauty, creativity, designs and shapes in everything, something probably you and I may not see. Her condition does not hold her back, but has accelerated beyond words.”

Joining these talented individuals is another young brand designer, ‘Designed by Josh’. He will showcase a fantastic ‘Day to Night’ collection at House of iKons. Comprised primarily of women’s outfits that are perfect for both the office and a night out.
