Today is International Women's Day, so we asked Lyn about the women that have inspired her in life...
Coco Chanel: because of her amazing story and her simple belief in one modernist style which broke all the rules.
Simone de Beauvoir: because of her incredible legacy as an existentialist philosopher, public intellectual, political activist, feminist theorist and social theorist.
and Jane Birkin: because she is a true icon of a generation that doesn’t act like a diva. Her care for others and passion for causes that need support is inspiring. You can follow some of her work at http://www.janebirkin.net/uk/vigilance.html
