5 Fashion Icons Who Inspire Us

by EW Group on November 11, 2018

EW is all about classic style, elegance and comfort. Our aim is to create garments that bring out your very best in any situation. Which fashion icon do you get your inspiration from?

We’ve made a list of our all-time favourites who continue to inspire us every day.


Audrey Hepburn

This 1950’s silver screen actress was one of the biggest celebrities of the era. Audrey Hepburn’s slim physique, unique smile and Bambi-like eyes captured the hearts of the world, and she continues to be a top fashion icon today. Her innocent beauty captivated French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, who shaped the Givenchy brand with her and created timeless, feminine, elegant styles.

Audrey Hepburn’s style uses basic colours (with lots of black and white), statement accessories, such as big hats and oversized sunglasses, and slim black dresses.


Jackie Kennedy Onassis

The former First Lady became a style icon with her pillbox hats and long white gloves, but her style was so much more than this. She was bold with colours and combined different cuts, such as culottes, to create inspiring, eye-catching outfits. Her autumn look included trench coats, head scarves and iconic sunglasses.

If Jackie’s your inspiration, be daring with colour block, choose bold colours and always add a feminine touch to more masculine or sporty outfits.


Princess Diana

The Queen of Hearts was popular not only for her kind personality but for her timeless sense of fashion, as well. Even with her pixie-style haircut, Lady Di always managed to be incredibly feminine. She’s remembered as the most rebellious royal in British history, and her youthful, fun style reflected this. Unlike other members of the royal family, she dared to wear short skirts, figure-hugging dresses, bare shoulder pieces and lots of colour.


Kate Moss

The supermodel become one of the most successful women of the 90’s fashion industry. Kate’s skinny figure, non-classic feminine look is rebellious. Her style knows no boundaries and strongly reflects her personality and nonchalant attitude. She creates style experiments with textures, patterns and colours. Her inner beauty shines through the masculine pieces she wears as everyday outfits, and she’s brave enough to wear vintage clothes. 


Sarah Jessica Parker

SJP is synonymous with style, fashion and femininity. Since her iconic role as Carrie Bradshaw in the hit TV series ‘Sex and the City’, Sarah’s become an ambassador for fashion. Her look is light, fun, extremely feminine, playful and trendy while also unique, unusual and sometimes retro. SJP’s fashion hallmarks are her high heels and trendy bags.


But no matter who your favourite fashion icon is, remember to stay true to your own personal style!
