International women's day is a day that's close to our heart and is as important as ever in these new times. As a female led independent brand, Delores Daywear aims to empower girls with our embroidered clothing.

The ladies in this playlist - Janet, Mariah, Aaliyah, and Sade - were empowering and influential for us as we grew up. Pushing boundaries with their music, with total confidence and making their mark on a male dominated industry. Here's to hoping the next generation of ladies are as strong as these ones.

Curated by Delores' Creative Director, Sophie, these songs have been instrumental during wobbly days, girls' nights out, and giving the push to carry on doing what you're doing (and doing it fabulously).
