I HAVE CHALLENGES. I WILL FACE THEM.
I HAVE FEARS. I WILL CONQUER THEM.
I HAVE DREAMS. I WILL LIVE THEM.
WHO IS MISS MATAHARI
Empowered through fitness and well being, the Miss Matahari woman is free to live the life she always dreamt of.
Within ourselves we have all the strengths we need and once we learn to harness them, anything is possible.
Miss Matahari encourages the collective strength; if alone we can achieve great things, standing together, we can make anything happen.
WHAT IS MISS MATAHARI
Bridging the gap between fashion and fitness, Miss Matahari brings sportsluxe designs to the fore.
Inspired by the original femme fatale, Mata Hari, Miss Matahari also celebrates the female form. Carefully designed to work with a woman’s body, the super sexy styles show off your best bits whilst helping to disguise the parts you’d rather went unnoticed, making you feel fit even if you’re not… yet.
But most of all, Miss Matahari empowers women to define their own selves; promoting a strong and healthy mindset that goes beyond a fashion label.
Mata Hari, means “sunrise” or, more literally, “the eye of the day”, in the language of the Dutch East Indies.
‘She stood alone in the sodden field on the outskirts of Paris, her fashionable ankle boots firmly planted in the mud churned up by the cavalry who drilled there.
No, she would not be tied to the stake, she told her executioners politely. And nor would she allow them to blindfold her. She faced the barrels of the firing squad without flinching.
Earlier, at 5am, they had woken her in her filthy cell in the Prison de Saint-Lazare to tell her this was the day she would die. She dressed in her best – stockings, a low-cut blouse under a dove-grey, two-piece suit.’
It did not seem to matter that no one had the least bit of evidence against her. Nor could anyone point to a single document, plan or secret that she passed to the Germans. Suspicion, envy and the prejudices of small-minded men would triumph.
Only 30 years after her death would one of her prosecutors concede the truth – “there wasn’t enough evidence to flog a cat”.
