ORS Olive Oil Takes NYFW In Style

ORS Olive Oil hosted a VIP Style Salon & Gifting Suite to kick off New York Fashion Week last Friday. The invite-only experience consisted of top media and influencers who enjoyed the many offerings of the style suite. The ORS Glam Team provided dry hairstyling for guests using ORS Olive Oil products—featuring its new refresh packaging and reformulated products including Sheen Spray and its Edge Control (the new products are available in stores).

A special panel discussion on “Women of Color in Fashion & Beauty” was also held with panelists Shawn Tollerson, CEO of Namaste Laboratories (Creators of ORS Olive Oil); Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily; legendary fashion activist Bethann Hardison; Allison MCGevna of Hello Beautiful/Madame Noire and with moderator, lifestyle & media personality Harriette Cole. An engaging and empowering conversation was had on the representation of women of color in the beauty and fashion industry.

The day ended with a special live performance by Neo-soul husband and wife duo Kindred The Family Soul.
