Around The World Beauty- An Exhibition by Stephanie Flor
A couple of months ago I had the chance to meet Stephanie at a friend’s house party and we chatted for a few before she left. In that little bit of time I was fascinated by her story and initiative. Fast forward to last week Thursday December 4 at Inglot Studios in Chelsea I was witness to her vision of Around The World Beauty, a beauty blog about rituals and traditions still practiced in different cultures by women all over the world come to life. A live exhibition that documented Stephanie’s travels and experiences.
A different beauty ritual shared from each of the countries she visited including India, Peru, Ecuador, and Japan. She collected on her journey the most unusual beauty practices and rituals and presented them for all to see. I enjoyed the art of henna and sipped on delicious cocktails from Birthday Cake Wines. The cultural African and Indian dances really engaged the guest and brought a different ambiance to the room. It was beautiful to hear of the stories about her travels but to see them in person stimulated other senses. I appreciated all the visuals. I even had the opportunity to be a part of the #ShareMoreLove campaign where I shared with the world my definition of love.
A room full of amazing women from all industries and backgrounds filled the make-up companies loft. It was an opportunity to explore culture and beauty and meet awesome people like Lindsay a world traveler and musician or Breonna D. Rodriguez, the mastermind behind Zenfulie, a women’s source of daily inspiration. So beyond Stephanie’s passion of beauty and travel she is helping to foster a community of like-minded individuals who can collaborate and nurture new relationships.
I’m so grateful for the overwhelming support of my vision to share beauty rituals from so many countries. This blog started as journal for my personal travels, and now it’s expanded to a movement. I never expected people to be inspired to travel and pursue dreams they never thought was possible- Stephanie Flor, Makeup Artist and Founder Around The Way Beauty
I will continue to support Around The World Beauty and look forward to what will come in 2015. It is without a doubt going to be magical.
