This Summer we launched a competition to ‘Find the Face’ of Dr. Organic. We were overwhelmed by the amount of truly amazing women from all across the UK that entered. We knew that we would have a tough decision on our hands and so an expert panel of judges were put together. Including skincare expert and beauty journalist Jo Fairley, founder of Premier Model Management Carol White, Healthy editor Ellie Hughes and Dr. Organic Co-Founder Steve Quinn.
We were looking for a ‘real woman’ who inspired confidence in those around her and is naturally beautiful inside and out. We invited eight finalists to London for the day to meet our panel of expert judges and have their photographs taken. They judges thought that each of the finalist brought something different to the competition and were all winners. It was a hard choice to make but after much deliberation Abi Riley from Manchester was chosen as the ‘Face’ of Dr.Organic with Eleanor Rosa-Leigh Simmons and Shab Fazi as runners up.
Steve Quinn, Co-founder of Dr. Organic, says, ‘We are happy to announce Abi as the face of Dr.Organic. She isn’t just a face, she is the whole package and her great personality shines through. We can’t wait for everyone to meet her! Her photos are fantastic, she’s used our products for some time and her enthusiasm really came through in the interview.’
Look out for Abi in 2014- attending events, regularly blogging her top tips and appearing on packaging for some fabulous new products that we are currently working on. We are so excited to be working more with Abi in the New Year!
Monday we had the privilege to work with the fabulous Maxine Leonard (http://www.jedroot.com/makeup-artists/maxine-leonard) who’s work has graced the covers of various magazines such as Vogue (British, French, German, Japanese, Russian and Chinese), Harper’s Bazaar, Numero, i-D, Wonderland, Man About Town, Dazed & Confused, Teen Vogue, W Korea and V Magazine. Maxine regularly works with a long list of celebrity clients such as Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Evan Rachel Wood, Eva Mendes, Megan Fox, Lucy Liu, Yasmin Le Bon, Lou Doillon, Kiera Knightley, Jessie J, Adele, Claudia Schiffer, Anna Friel, Eva Herzigova, Yasmin Le Bon, Paz de la Heurta and Lilly Allen.
This London Fashion Week Maxine worked with KTZ and drew on inspiration from the traditions of nomadic culture in modern society with an organic feel and aesthetic to the looks that she created. Maxine used Dr. Organic products (Moroccan Argan Skin Lotion, Moroccan Argan Stem Cell Anti-Aging System, Moroccan Argan Facial Oil, Rose Otto Skin Toner, Rose Otto Cleansing Milk and Dead Sea Mineral Day Cream) to produce a dewy finish to the skin. Which complemented the prints that were influenced by the Middle East, providing a muted softness on the back drop of an urban rugged landscape.
The show went without a hitch and received a rapturous applause. Many thanks to everyone involved and a huge congratulations to Maxine and her team!!
Yesterday we were invited to the http://www.loveyourhair.com Awards at The Swan in The Globe Theatre London. It was a fantastic afternoon with a fabulous atmosphere. The day was made all the sweeter in the fact that we got to take three of the awards home with us.
