Winter is officially on its way and you need something to raise your spirits and inspire you through the darker months. Fear not! Issue #3 of Riposte is now available to pre-order! Throughout the new issue we profile a selection of incredible women who are out there, pushing things forward, creating amazing work and offering inspiring insights into their worlds.
We speak to women as diverse as a beer sommelier to a clinical psychologist, from a trainee astronaut to a punk band front woman. In our meetings section we interview the incredible stylist Anna Trevelyan; iconic painter, Nathalie Du Pasquier; director of Frieze art fairs, Victoria Siddall and singer Samantha Urbani.

Donna Loveday is the co-curator of the brilliant exhibition Women Fashion Power: not a multiple choice currently on show at the Design Museum in London. The exhibition charts a remarkable survey of how women have used fashion to define and enhance their position in the world. The sense of female solidarity within the show is also indicated by the commissioning of the inimitable architect Zaha Hadid to design the museum walkthrough and displays. Women Fashion Power brings together exclusive interviews, an immersive multimedia journey,
and unique historic pieces of clothing. Alongside looking at the archives of iconic late greats, the curators have also invited contemporary women to contribute one of their outfits to display, as well as sharing their personal style philosophy. For her Riposte Icon, Donna Loveday chose Katherine Hepburn. Hepburn managed to hold onto her inspirational and fiercely independent look, despite working within a formidable and sexist early Hollywood environment.
