Beauty Project - Selfridges

Friday, May 02, 2014

Hi Lovelies,

I don't know if your aware but Selfridge's are hosting a number of beauty events from the 8th May onwards at their Exchange Square, Manchester store looking at different aspects within the industry.

They will cover a wide rage of topics from:

8 May -  ‘black (and mixed race) beauty’ in the media and how beauty translates across different audiences.

15 May -  relationship between beauty, brands and the older woman in Who are You Calling Invisible? Beauty and the Older Woman.

21 May -  An exploration of the transformative powers of make- up and the role of beauty work in the creation and expression of gender and identity -We’re Born Naked, The Rest is Drag; Identity, Fantasy and Beauty Beyond Gender.

4 June - In The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful, discussing the rituals, history and effects of beauty work and examining its place in modern feminism.

They will have different speakers at each of the events and they sound really interesting. I'm not sure if I can make it to any of the events but If I could only go to one i'd pick the 15th May session. While I don't consider myself old (i'm only 32!) I know I am one of the older bloggers that I speak to and I think it would be interesting to see what i'll be letting myself in for over the coming years.

If any of these take your fancy or you want some more info there is an area on the Selfridges website.

All talks will take place in San Carlo’s Farmacia del Dolce (LG) and tickets are priced at £15 – which includes a glass of wine and tasting plate of San Carlo’s signature dishes. Tickets will be available from w/c 21 April and can be purchased online ( or in store (Services Lounge, LG).

There are also events on at the Trafford Centre if that's more your thing
