Vanita Parti, founder of Blink, came up with the idea of eyebrow threading bars to solve her own personal needs. Desperate to get her eyebrows threaded to perfection, she struggled to find a beauty salon in London and had to travel to the outskirts to find the service. In 2004, after leaving her brand role at British Airways, she decided to launch her first eyebrow bar with one chair in Fenwick, Bond Street.
Blink’s mission has been and always will be to ‘take the pain out of beauty regimes and leave women looking and feeling fabulous’. Blink certainly touched on desperate need, women loved the quick ‘no fuss’ service and exceptional results. Queues continue to form every day at the Blink Brow Bars, and they now shape over a quarter of a million eyebrows a year.</p>
LYNCH is the brainchild of Jaci Lynch, London based designer whose extensive fashion background includes working in RTW and accessories for brands like Clements Ribeirto in the UK. The designers passion for heritage and high quality led to an apprenticeship in bespoke tailoring at Henry Poole's of Savile Row and to a Masters Degree in Design and Technology at the London College of Fashion, with the final collection of creative leatherwork recieving much acclaim and exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in Jan 2008.
This background in ready to wear is explored through use of special fabrics and techniques in combination with butter soft leathers and exotic skins each season. Moreover it greatly infuences the cut of each belt to flatter the silhoutte without compromising comfort. Together with Scottish husband Iain, she launched JLYNCH in 2009 with the goal to create pieces so exquisite that defy fleeting trends, with a lasting power to inspire excitement and desire.</p>
Alison van der Lande
Alison van der Lande swapped the high-pressured life as a successful PR consultant in London to develop her own range of elegant bright travel bags, from her Hampshire home.
“I have always wanted to create and make something, and when I couldn’t find a new colourful leather weekend bag, I realised there was a gap in the market!” said Alison.
With a background in marketing, and a love of shopping, Alison then researched and developed the concept. The first collection was launched in 2005, with The Classico Weekend bag – a half-moon shaped travel bag in bright colours. Within three months of the launch, it had been snapped up by Selfridges and then The Conran Shop - Alison knew she was onto a winner.
“Stores and customers then asked for a matching hand-bag, so I launched the Bella bag and my handbag collection began”. 2006 saw the launch of best-selling Daisy Doo (named after her daughter Daisy). This easy day bag now sells in thousands every year and comes in over twenty colours, from metallic, pastel, white and patent.
A luxury sports collection followed, with a range of brightly coloured tennis and golf bags, for both men and women. Since then the handbag collection has grown to include work, casual and occasion handbags and is stocked in the USA, Australia, Norway, Portugal and many more countries.
