P&G Beauty in Bangkok

 

 

It has been the coldest spring in Toronto. Just last night it went down to 4°C. Unbelievable. It was wonderful spending the whole season with my family here. I was also able to see and experience the actual Spring/Summer 2013 beauty and fashion forecasts come alive. Because where I live, we just have two seasons — hot and hotter.

A few months ago I was able to attend P&G Beauty’s Vision House in Bangkok as one of the Philippines’ P&G Beauty brand ambassadors. It was a wonderful two-day event that not simply presented trends per se, it drew inspiration from across the planet in the fields of art, architecture, design, technology, and music to identify the global trends that would define the beauty landscape over the upcoming year. I will highlight some of the trends that resonated with me in a series of posts.

Here’s a quick recap of what it was like surrounded by beauty and inspiration in a beautiful hotel So Bangkok designed by Christian Lacroix.

The rooms were all worth a story. Floors were divided into elements – water, metal, wood, earth. I got earth.

    Glad to hear you’re still in Toronto. I hope I bump into you in Oakville one of these days.
