We invite you to Get Beautified
Our great friend and supporter Hannah Bronfman has launched her first app, Get Beautified.
The app acts as your personal assistant, helping you to find salons and spas with ease so you may book last-minute beauty appointments. The app allows you to explore and discover same-day bookings for selected treatments and you can even book an appointment for a friend. We love the elegant look and feel the app has, and of course, the creative concept!
The app is currently available with partnered salons and spas in New York City and will be expanding to additional cities soon. It's available for free in the iTunes store.
We would like to extend a congratulations to Hannah Bronfman and her Get Beautified team for the creation and launch of an interesting, fresh and very useful app.
Organic featured at the Maison de Mode Ethical Pop-Up Shop this weekend
Tomorrow marks the opening of the Maison de Mode Ethical Pop-Up Shop at the Hole Gallery, which is located at 312 Bowery Street in New York. The pop-up shop will be open to the public Friday through Sunday from 12-7pm. The Maison de Mode Pop-Up Ethical Shop will feature a capsule collection from Organic by John Patrick, amongst the acclaimed Stella McCartney, Osklen and several others. In the pop-up shop, there will be featured items from Organic's Pre-Fall 2013 collection that are not yet available in our webstore. The event, in conjunction with the Frieze Art Fair, is founded by Designer Hassan Pierre, curated by Town & Country's Special Project Editor Amanda Hearst and will also be co-hosted by Hannah Bronfman.
Amanda Hearst reflected on the debut of Maison de Mode this past December at Art Basel Miami Beach, which nearly sold out, telling the New York Times' T Magazine, "The funny thing is that I think a lot of people walked away not realizing the items were ethically produced. I basically made it my mission to prove that ethical fashion isn't frumpy and bland."
This week in review
Earlier this week, Women's Wear Daily wrote about Organic's participation in the 3rd annual symposium at the Fashion Law Institute at Fordham Law, where panelists discussed the Federal Trade Commission's recently updated Green Guides, what it means to be sustainable & ethical and how the fashion industry has a long way to go.
Vogue Australia also highlighted Hannah Bronfman wearing Organic in their March 2013 issue in a wonderful article about Hannah for their monthly SPY feature.
Additionally, Ecouterre posted about an event taking place tonight at GGrippo Art + Design in Brooklyn, where Organic will join other designers and editors to host a conversation about slow fashion. You may find more information about the event courtesy of the Ethical Fashion Academy. Looking forward!
Also this week, fashion blogger Olivia Inkster wrote about Organic's A/W 2013 collection for Style Defined NYC and also a more personal recollection on her own blog Those Kind of Girls. Olivia wrote of the collection, "...This build-up reflected the balance in John Patrick’s latest creations, which seem to represent the quintessential downtown girl but one with a more graduated perspective on herself and the world around her, consciousness of even the clothes she hangs in her closet." We love this reflection, thank you!
