Gavin Caganoff, Marketing Director for BLC Cosmetics, distributor of Essie, said:
“Due to the huge success of Fashion Weekend Sydney earlier this year, we made the decision to partner up with the event for a second consecutive time. It’s a great collaboration for us because Essie is all about blending the fashionable with the functional! You’re always in style and on trend if you have a great manicure and the summer event offers a great platform for us to showcase our latest summer and neon collections and educate consumers about the nail look of the season. Like with Fashion Week Sydney in May, we will be backstage working with the designers to complete their looks for the runway shows as well as offering express manis for all the fashion fans.”
“On the strength of the positive venture into the fashion world in April with Fashion Week, I jumped at the chance to be involved in Fashion Weekend when approached to participate.
“We are very excited about showing Eminence off to the fashion savvy in Sydney and hope the public are excited about our new organic product collections as much as our classic range.”
