With inclusivity top-of-mind in the beauty industry, Project Beauty Expo is doubling in size, including more wellness-oriented brands and adding a merchandise marketplace. The indie beauty exhibition is created for and by women of color and will be held Aug. 12 at the Hudson Mercantile annex in Manhattan.
Project Beauty Expo grew out of founder Brittany Brown’s frustration uncovering exhibits geared to Millennial women of color. “I started my own skin-care line in 2016 and I found that events for women of color with a focus on natural beauty and wellness didn’t exist. So, I created my own.”

Take a peek into Gucci's new Instagram account (@guccibeauty), which is guided by Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision of beauty. In typical Gucci fashion, the account already features a series of artworks spanning across history, ethnicity, culture and geography. It will showcase and promote its new cosmetic launches and fragrances as well as looks from the fashion shows and special collaborations with artists and talents. #wwdbeauty
