Industry Influencers Reveal the Famous Women Who Inspire Them

It seems just about everything gets a day or a month these days…National Doughnut Day (June 3), National Cereal Day (March 7)…there’s even a whole National Frozen Food Month. Every now and again, however, there’s a day that sheds light on a matter of real importance, which brings us to today: International Women’s Day. Brands are banding together to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while raising much-needed funds to further support female entrepreneurship, particularly in the developing world.

In light of this very meaningful day, we reached out to fashion industry influencers and asked them to tell us about the famous women in history who inspire them. Here’s a look at what Trina Turk, Rebecca Taylor and some of our other favorites had to say.
