NEW YORK--Sep. 10, 2018-- As fall ushers in cool, crisp weather, Macy's fashion, accessories, beauty and home products are a source of inspiration to help navigate the season, dress with confidence, and find the most remarkable version of ourselves. Inspired by the turning of a new leaf, the season's easy and breezy fashion options serve as transitional pieces for the cooler months.

Self-expression is evident and powerfully relayed in "Remarkable You," Macy's new television spot which showcases six women as they each take on their day.

"Fall is one of our most trend-focused seasons, with high fashion and elevated dressing at the forefront of all we do," said Cassandra Jones, senior vice president of Macy's Fashion. "The seamless curation and selection of items stems from our belief that if you look good, you'll feel good, and we want unique fashion options to spark that feeling. This fall, our customers will see this message in 'Remarkable You,' featuring relatable women who are using fashion as a means to discover their remarkable selves."

Macy's new television spot, "Remarkable You," follows six inspiring and remarkable women who are paving the way for future generations. Underscored by No Doubt's iconic anthem "Just a Girl," the spot follows them during their morning dressing ritual and their jobs, showing how fashion is their armor and equips them with confidence to take on the day.

While they are each different, the six diverse women find their own remarkable selves through their interpretation and styling of fall fashion trends and must-haves, reminding viewers that they, too, can find the best of fall fashion and themselves at Macy's. From launching a rocket into orbit to inspiring young minds, we all have the potential to do remarkable things.
