Black Ballad presents: Beauty & Inclusivity with Tobi Oredein, Funmi Fetto & Hani Sidow

Earlier this year Boots made headlines by announcing its partnership with Rhianna’s Fenty Beauty brand, a landmark for many women who have for too long been excluded from high street beauty brands. However, there is still a long way to go for representation in the beauty industry. Join us for an honest and timely discussion about where the industry has been, where it’s at now and what still needs to change.

On Tuesday 15th October, at Waterstones Gower St, we'll be speaking with Funmi Fetto, Glamour Executive Editor and Beauty Director and a former British Vogue Beauty Editor, whose book Palette is not only a first-of-its-kind kind beauty book directly aimed at women of colour, it is a rallying cry for representation and inclusivity.

They’ll both be joined by beauty influencer and author of Insta-glam Hani Sidow, whose Glamour UK column ‘The Glam Hijabi’ breaks taboos about being a beauty-loving Hijab wearer, helping inspire other women on Muslim beauty, fashion and modesty.

Together, they’ll explore issues around beauty, exclusion and empowerment. Come along and bring your questions.
