Katie Popperwell will need to approve that you worked on “Selfridges Beauty Project” before we add you as a collaborator.

Selfridges Beauty Project

Selfridges’ Beauty Project was a nationwide campaign that aimed to challenge industry stereotypes, with a multi-faceted and thought-provoking exploration of the definition of beauty and what it means in today’s society.
Six central themes – all representing key aspects of the ongoing beauty debate – were chosen to articulate The Beauty Project, from the product selection and in-store services to the talks, workshops and other activities. The themes were; Age and Beauty, Adornment/Extreme Beauty, Global Beauty, Gender and Natural Beauty.
My programme of talks featured high profile speakers including activists and journalists Caryn Franklin, Sali Hughes as well as Bim Adewumne, Zawe Ashton, Dr Sally Hines (Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Leeds), Grace Oni Smith (make-up and drag artist) and Cheddar Gorgeous (drag performer, visual artist and Manchester academic).
