ESCADA - 'The Heart' Bag

Published on



Women for Women International are proud to partner with ESCADA.

In 1978, Margaretha Ley founded ESCADA during a time when women were just starting to establish themselves in business.

Through Margaretha’s design skill in knitwear and tailoring and her entrepreneurial mindset, ESCADA grew into a globally renowned fashion brand. Margaretha’s creative vision and strength remain central to the brand today.

2018 marks the launch of Women for Women International’s partnership with ESCADA. ‘The Heart’ bag will be sold in support of our work, with 5% of profits donated to helping women survivors of war to rebuild their lives. Crafted with love, the heart is inspired by ESCADA’s first fragrance bottle and is a tribute to the strength and self-confidence of Margaretha.


For every image of your hands in a heart shape with #FollowYourHeartFirst, @escadaoffical and @womenforwomenuk in the caption, ESCADA will also donate $1 to Women for Women International. .
