So London Fashion Week is done and dusted for this season and once again Weleda was delighted to be sponsoring London-based fashion designer Paula Knorr who revealed her Autumn/Winter collection on 19 February 2018.  Paula’s presentation took place in the main British Fashion Council show space at 4.30pm.

Clean beauty… “The Weleda Way.”

Paula Knorr was born near Frankfurt in Germany where Weleda is a household name. Herself a vegan, Paula is a long-term fan of the Weleda range: “I grew up in Germany and both my mum and my grandma used Weleda products.  Weleda, with the brand’s holistic and natural approach to beauty, is the perfect partner to my idea of individual and unique beauty.”

Backstage, make-up designer Martina Lattanzi and her team will be working exclusively with Weleda skincare to prep 18 models of all ages, youngsters in their early 20s as well as models in their 50s and beyond, for an ageless and individual make-up look.

MARTINA: “My make-up inspiration for this collection comes from the word UNIQUE. I will be creating an exclusive beauty look for each model, tailored to their individual personality, age and self-expression.  Make-up that brings out an idea of beauty that belongs to different ages.  My inspiration was found in iconic women from the 90s: Jennifer Connelly, Tatjana Patitz, Charlize Theron, Kate Moss … all different to each other but connected to an idea of timeless beauty. An iconic make-up re-designed with a modern twist.”

“I am pleased that for the third season Weleda will be sponsoring the make-up team.  Weleda has been the perfect partner, helping me to create a beautiful and conscious make-up look.  I found in Weleda the ideal blend of natural ingredients to create a flawless and radiant complexion.  Skincare is always the first step to create a beauty look, and for this season we will be using Weleda’s Evening Primrose products.  This versatile range works perfectly on mature and younger skins, an exceptional range that boosts and revitalises sensitive skin.”

“I am very excited to be introducing the beautiful Evening Primrose Concentrate into the skin-prep this season – this serum is a skincare must-have to add in to your beauty regime, especially in the coldest months of the year.  After freshening the face with the One-Step Cleanser & Toner, I gently massage the serum into the skin followed by a little Evening Primrose Revitalising Day Cream made with organic evening primrose oil.  I’ll be working with Weleda’s new mineral pigment Beauty Balms rather than foundation – these are the lightest of products that even out minor blemishes but the skin remains luminous, letting the model’s individuality shine through.”

“To add an extra dewy and bright finish, I am going to use one of my favourite and signature products for this look … Weleda Skin Food … a multi-tasker that can be used as a face mask, moisturiser and highlighter.  Backstage I normally use it as a natural highlighter to illuminate cheekbones, eyelids and brows to enhance the features that make a woman unique, and to create a shimmer that echoes the metallics in Paula’s collection.”

“This season Paula Knorr’s guests can explore a 3D sensory experience, combining Paula’s designs to delight the eyes, live music, plus fragrant skincare ingredients and soft natural perfume in the air.  In the final line-up, I will be using Weleda’s Jardin De Vie ‘Onagre’ fragrance, an mix of floral notes of Magnolia, Cardamom and Sandalwood – an elegant scent for a sensual and timeless evening look.”

We are already into the fourth week of January…. how did that happen so quickly!!  Whilst many find January a long dark month – I embrace this opportunity to adopt a slower peace of life, enjoying the peace, calm effect it brings… a time for simple pleasures.

Yes my first first week was a busy one, getting back to work and catching up with friends and family but I I’ve also made time to enjoy the simple things and taking things slow… no strict restrictions!

As with a New Year we all begin with great intentions and enthusiasm and all to often we can’t follow what we intended to do – setting unrealistic goals, therefore putting unnecessary pressure on ourselves.  This is the reason why I never make New Year resolutions but instead make a mental note or write a letter to myself to be kind and take care of…

We are all different shapes and sizes and as a very small business I choose not to partake in the huge discounts of Black Friday; I already feel that I offer my customers very good value for money and put my heart and soul into my work as I truly love what I do as a therapist.

Yes I occasionally do small offers and will have some giveaways, however being a small business isn’t easy – so when you’re shopping or treating yourself this Christmas please don’t forget little independents… We really do care. Thank you.
