International Women's Day

This International Women’s Day (and everyday!) we love celebrating the women of Black Pepper. Whether we’re sharing the love of our fabulous outfits, or a morning tea and coffee in store.

This year, we sat down with some of the ladies behind the brand, to discover what inspires them, their motivation and what it means to be a strong woman. 

JENNIFER, BLACK PEPPER DESIGNER

What woman in your life has inspired you and why?
My Aunty Mary was a kind gentle lady. She lived a very simple life on a vineyard in the country, she was very nurturing, wise and always told me to follow my dreams.

What’s a quote you live by?
SMILE. SPARKLE. SHINE

What/who motivates you?
I don’t like to miss out on anything - I love life, being passionate about life gives me the drive and motivation to be the best I can in everything I do for my family, my friends, my work, my home, my life…

What does it mean to you to be a strong woman?
Someone that loves herself, lives without regret, and is eager to learn from their failures and achievements. 

TARA, BLACK PEPPER DESIGNER

What woman in your life has inspired you and why?
I have 5 sisters so I would say them, no matter what we go through in life, we always stick together.

What’s a quote you live by?
Dream Big

What/who motivates you?
My son, and being a mum in general.

What does it mean to you to be a strong woman?
Definitely since having a baby and experiencing what women go through to bring life into the world – both physically and mentally - I think women are super human and our bodies are incredible to do that.

NICKY, BLACK PEPPER AREA MANAGER, QLD

What’s a quote you live by?
You can’t live your life on “if only”.

What/who motivates you?
Myself… I just feel like I want to get the most of everyday. When you have done your hair and got your face on… you need to maximise it!

What does it mean to you to be a strong woman?
Be independent, know your own mind, believe in yourself, speak your truth…and be kind.
