International Women’s Day is every year on March 8th. The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. This year’s theme is #Balanceforbetter. A balanced world is a better world. This brings about the question, how can we help forge a more gender-balanced world? Answer: celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness by closing dialog against bias and take action for equality. We, at There VND Then, put this into action through fashion. Everything on our online shop is uni-sex and we have something for every type of women.

The brand shares little about itself to the world. Keeping a low profile has helped to push the prices by creating mystery behind the label along with allowing the designs to speak for themselves.

These are your boyfriend’s favorite boots so let him know you need a matching pair!
Let’s build a gender-balanced world. The future is exciting. We may be continuing with something that may seems small, clothing, but the way that the clothing makes women feel and the options they have to feel this way are a reflection of how women all over the want the world to perceive them. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Overall, balance drives a better world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.
