In a special event by The League of Extraordinary Women, over 60 inspiring girl bosses joined us at the stunning MISS FOX space for this intimate event, all about the art of self-care, and why looking after yourself is good for your business - or your career. Two extraordinary female entrepreneurs, including MISS FOX Founder, Victoria Fox, told us their story, and discussed why wellness matters to them, and the achievable ways that they incorporated self care into their hectic schedules.

SPEAKER // VICTORIA FOX // FOUNDER, MISS FOX
MISS FOX is Melbourne's award-winning urban day spa and beauty destination, located in the heart of the CBD. MISS FOX started in 2010, when owner Victoria Fox realised her vision for the ultimate beauty and wellness wonderland. With a corporate background of 7 years, and a beauty background of 4 within her own skin clinic (Shrinc Clinic), Victoria understood the needs of busy city women and men, who wanted exceptional treatments across all grooming, cosmetic and therapeutic categories in a way that was sophisticated, caring and fun.
Aside from mentions and features in almost every major publication, from Vogue to The Luxe Guide and everything in between, its awards include Best Urban Day Spa three years running, and Best Spa Manager (Australasian Spa Awards).
Impeccable style, exceptional service, and a touch of magic define the MISS FOX experience. MISS FOX believes self-care is a beautiful thing, and its mission is to make it a luxurious, safe, and loving act that positively impacts both people and planet. From the products selected, to the way every treatment is delivered, and through embedding giving into everything they do — looking good never felt so good.

THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN
Because the world needs more extraordinary females, doing what they love. Because it is lonely at the top and the entrepreneur’s path to success is one of the most isolating experiences. REAL connections will make this journey less lonely. We need the encouragement and support of other women like ourselves because it will give us the inspiration and courage we need to succeed. It is through the sharing of experiences that we learn and expand.
The League have seen first hand over the last 5 years how they have inspired new business startups, facilitated collaborations, created incredible friendships and inspired the next generation of female entrepreneurs.
