HALTE À LA PEAU SÈCHE, GLAMOUR PARIS
Back in October while stuck inside during Hurricane Sandy and living off of Fruit Roll-ups I answered an email interview for the lovely Sabine of Glamour Paris, et voila! If you are in France you can pick up the February edition and see for yourself. For everyone else who doesn't parler français no problem, I translated it below (with some additions in parenthesis).
EVERYTHING’S COMING UP ROSES
Rose products are sprouting up everywhere I look. From decadent rose oil infused with twenty-four carat pink gold to more humble lip balms and scented candles; roses are staging a beauty take over. Throughout history they have been revered for their sweet scent; and thanks to science we now know that certain species of the flower are packed with vitamin C, soothe the skin, and may reduce skin damage and wrinkles. They have been coming onto the scene for a while with the occasional launch of a rose product but now brands like By Terry are creating entire ranges around the flower. So I’ve tested the market and compiled a list of new launches and old classics, here are some of my favorites:

PARISA AND MAX , MAX FOWLES
Parisa: “We are launching Max Fowles Ready to Wear collection for Autumn/Winter 2012. I’m the Creative Director for the brand and we’ve been designing the collection for the past few years. It’s a small twenty-piece collection and we are really excited. When you get your first sale it’s the point where you feel like oh this works and it is so rewarding because you have a vision in your head but you don’t know how it will work until you get the feedback.”
