Who is the AMERICAE Woman?
The AMERICAE Woman values difference and uniqueness in her life just as in her way of dressing. Dressing is an important part of her self-expression because she believes that what she wears reflects her values. As such, she seeks brands that are an extension of her style and her values.
She is globally aware, meaning that she pays attention to what is happening around the world and is curious to expanding her horizons through travel, museums, magazines, films, or books.
The AMERICAE Woman is focused on pursuing her own version of extraordinary. She lives life on her own terms and stands for what she believes in. She is unwavering. She has a positive impact on the world around her and empowers others. She is adventurous and not afraid to be feminine—however she chooses to interpret the word. She is authentic because she wears her true self bravely, inspiring and uplifting those around her. The AMERICAE Woman lives with courage, passion, and integrity. In fact, it is in pursuing the unexpected where she finds growth and soul nourishment.
In past blog posts we have asked interview subjects who they believe embodies the AMERICAE Woman. Their responses ranged from the descriptive "confident women" and "titans of tomorrow" to specific women such as "Amal Clooney, Carolina Herrera, Zendaya, and Margherita Missoni," exhibiting the multifaceted portrait of the AMERICAE Woman.
To the AMERICAE Woman luxury means many things. Luxury is allowing herself to live with presence and to value personal experiences. It includes embracing loved ones, the serenity of reading a book alone, touching a beautiful fabric, tasting or smelling a wonderful meal, listening to her favorite musician, or traveling around the world. These sensorial experiences are among what she values most in life, finding the beauty and extraordinariness in simple realities and appreciating the pursuit of her own version of extraordinary.
