The female trailblazer is a multifaceted force of nature, for she seeks to redefine her status in society as one which – rightfully – rests in line with her male peers. Framing her life around the pursuit of equality, her mission is twofold.
First of all, to carve her own path through an exploration of her unique talents and passions. Secondly, to champion all of the journeys within her fellow female community, subsequently building the blocks for future generations to flourish. Historically, she may have been up against a wave in society, but today, the trailblazer sees this coming, and rather than running from it, she tackles it head on – exhibiting a modern sense of strength which calls for celebration. Enter the intention of our latest series: Tailoring the Trailblazers. Created in collaboration with photographer Candice Lake, this visual project has been built around a curation of women who have overcome a wave of inequality: both in their professional life and personal expression. The first segment of the series was unveiled on International Women’s Day – a perfect occasion to celebrate accomplishments in the current female sphere – but we must emphasise: our values at The Deck transcend this twenty-four hour holiday. Stitching a silhouette of individuality both constitutes and drives the daily evolution of our house: hallmarking the sartorial style of women who are unrivalled in their respective fields.
