See all the designers involved in the Net-a-Porter International Women’s Day collection
The kick-ass capsule is brought to you by some of the biggest female names in fashion.
Empowered women empower women. This is the slogan designer fashion outlet Net-a-Porter are championing for this International Women's Day. Teaming up with non-profit organisation, Women for Women International, the retailer has just launched a fashion capsule for women designed by some of your favourite female fashionistas. Who run the world? Girls.
Net-a-Porter invited Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung, Isabel Marant, Ellery, Rosie Assoulin and Perfect Moment to design the exclusive line which features six white t-shirt iterations. Each style brings with it a message of sisterhood and solidarity, as well as each designer's individual flair.
Isabel Marant's iteration features the phrase "You go girl" emblazoned across the front of the tee in bright red. According to Net-a-Porter, the design was inspired by the fact that the encouraging phrase is something "we need to hear a little more of". Victoria Beckham's design, on the other hand, is a more minimalistic approach to the cause and features the designer's own handwriting with the message "I am her".
Model and designer Alexa Chung's t-shirt features the words "Divine Feminine" in red velvet and represents "the connection to the part of your consciousness responsible for nurture, empathy and intuition". Luxury activewear brand Perfect Moment's contribution to the line is a tee printed with the word "Power" and is a celebration of women and all their social, economic and political achievements.
Rosie Assoulin's T-shirt is true geek chic. Made up of black and red numbers, with the red making the shape of a heart, the numbers translate to "Happy International Women's Day" in binary code. To round out the line, Ellery has created a simple design that states "The future is female" on the front and features a charging unicorn on the reverse side.

The proceeds from the collection will go to the Women for Women International organisation, which supports women survivors of war on the road to rebuilding their lives. This isn't the first time Net-a-Porter has supported the Women for Women International charity. The retailer also launched a t-shirt capsule collection last year designed by the likes of Stella McCartney, Gianni, Chloé and Bella Fraud.
When and where can you shop the collection?
International Women's Day is tomorrow, meaning that the collection is already available to shop from the Net-a-Porter site. The prices range from U$130-$305, which might seem a bit steep for white tees. Given that they are designer branded and that the proceeds go to an amazing cause, though, we guarantee they won't be around for long so you might want to get in quick.
If the price tags are outside of your budget, you can still show your support for your fellow women with PrettyLittleThing's International Women's Day collection. The affordable collection starts from just $12 and will be donating 100% of the profits to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
