Celebrating International Women's Day

Our Favourite Women-Led Brands and Entrepreneurs

We don’t have to look very far to see inspiring women thriving and excelling in business. Being a female-founded brand, here at Astrid & Miyu we like to take a minute to acknowledge and encourage other amazing and influential women we have had the pleasure of admiring, knowing or working with. These are women from all walks of life, doing what they’re passionate about and leading the way for future generations.

We were absolutely thrilled to host them on our A&M Podcast, After Hours or have them involved in our Brand Lab & Accelerator Program, where we help to nurture, grow and develop through passing on any advice, tips and tricks we have learnt along the way.

Rixo, Founded by Founded by Orlagh McCloskey and Henrietta Rix
Rixo was created in 2015 by two best friends, Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey. The girls saw a gap in the market for easy-to-wear, feminine shapes and high-quality materials. Their uplifting and vibrant designs have caught the attention of the likes of Trinny Woodall, Holly Willoughby and Heidi Klum! The two women are still heavily involved in all aspects of the business. Orlagh leads the design department and Henrietta is responsible for building their global IG community. We were lucky to have Henrietta & Orlagh on an episode of our podcast ~ listen on Spotify here.
