Luckily with March, we have something to celebrate as March brands Womxn’s History Month and March 8th is International Womxn’s Day. To differentiate both motives, we’re partnering with the Female Design Council( FDC ) for the second year to highlight five talented womxn-identifying decorators, masters and manufacturers and their incredible make. The Female Design Council was launched in 2016 by kinder MODERN benefactor Lora Appleton as a platform to patronize all womxn in the design industry.

In celebration of this year’s International Womxn’s Day, we’re sharing five of those designers and masters that are changing the game.
