What’s your definition of success? For every one of you reading this issue of Marie Claire , the likelihood is it will be different. And that’s a really great thing, because conforming to specific notions or expectations that society has set for us is no longer something women are prepared to do. Being able to follow our personal passions, to find value in our work, to pursue second and even third careers, to integrate, rather than balance our work and lives, are just some of the ways we’re making a change. And at the forefront of this new wave, disrupting the status quo and doing things their way, are 11 women we’ve voted for in our 2016 Future Shapers awards, in partnership with Neutrogena.

9 to 5 my style

MY COLLECTION IS COHESIVE AND TIMELESS. I wanted it to be effortless, strong and feminine. I want women to feel unique, beautiful and confident in my clothes. I WEAR MULTIPLE ‘HATS’ within my job, but each one complements my career and lifestyle. Fashion runs in my blood and is what I have been drawn to my whole life. My grandmother owned a boutique called Mimi in the 70s, which inspired me to open my store and be a designer. I CREATED THE ‘ROBERTA’ PUMP because I thought it looked fresh and feminine, and it was something I had not seen before. MY WARDROBE MUST MAKE ME FEEL CONFIDENT, and contain lots of outerwear and dresses – these are the foundation of my clothing. ALWAYS WEAR SHOES WITH A HEEL, even if it is a…
