Cosmoprof North America is reviving its Beauty Pitch competition. This year, CPNA will feature Beauty Pitch Angels 2018 as an avenue to bring private equity and venture capitalists together with industry innovators. It is an update of Beauty Pitch 2015, a “Shark Tank”-inspired opportunity which accelerated growth of brands including 100 Percent Pure and Primal Pit Paste.
“CPNA has a long and steady reputation for providing truly one-of-a-kind programs that propel brands forward and is unique in its ability to attract major private equity groups,” said Daniela Ciocan, marketing director at CPNA. “We used key insights from the debut Beauty Pitch 2015 competition to arrive at this year’s format which is all about efficiently bringing truly qualified investors and target companies together for impactful opportunities.”
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
