THE TRIBE x Lancome Event January 2017

THE TRIBE event took place on 26th January 2017 with Lancôme and performances by Shingai. Founded by Samata, doubling as both a quarterly evening and a collective, THE TRIBE brings together a curated phenomenal group of women to inspire, encourage and support each other in a celebratory atmosphere. Whether online through conversation, forum and engagement, or offline through events (intimate or large), THE TRIBE is about encouraging a shift in mindset.

Each evening hosted by THE TRIBE, women representing a plethora of industries including Fashion, Media, Business, Law, Food, Drink, Art & Design, Lifestyle, Sport & Entertainment, Science and Public Life, will come together in a positive space to celebrate the now and be supported with the positive mindset needed to tackle the future. The Golden Era has returned, and THE TRIBE defines it by celebrating who we are right now. More to come!

THE TRIBE x Lancome

Lancôme announced as official sponsor of THE TRIBE. “I am excited to host another event for THE TRIBE as a new year begins. To be able to share that our sponsor will be Lancôme – an incredibly inspirational and aspirational brand – is beyond thrilling, “ says THE TRIBE founder, Samata. “THE TRIBE is all about creating a space for women to come and celebrate themselves, and who they already are. Lancôme’s message and actions, from appointing natural beauty Lupita Nyongo as an ambasadress to creating products for women of all, truly reveal their ethos as a brand, and that they are fully onboard with our message of positive beauty and self love.”

Samata collaboration with Wolf & Badger

Samata has teamed up with online retailer Wolf & Badger to share some recommended brands and ethical picks. Home to some of the coolest independent brands in town, Wolf and Badger stock a large number of brands doing things ethically and sustainably. Wolf & Badger will also be offering a discount of 10% off any item on Wolf & Badger.com for anyone who signs up to Samata’s mailing list here.

How is transformational fashion sustainable? For me, fashion that can be worn from day to night, pieces that work harder for you are a relevant part of the conversation, even if just a small part. I’ve spoken about this with my jumpsuits before, wearing a dress in many different ways and so on – I believe in making our clothing work harder for us. That is one of the reasons why I love this Pepper & Mayne graphic, black and white body piece; paired with a skirt or pair of jeans, it can be a completely different look. Personally I paired it with @GinaCarmenJewelry and a black skirt I already had. Available at Wolf & Badger – link to items in bio. I have a special 10% discount running with @WolfandBadger until 31st January 2017, sign up to my newsletter (on my Style page in bio link) to be sent the code 🙂 Let me know how you feel about a multi-tasking outfit? For me, it’s the perfect way to save money and do your bit towards sustainability.

ITV News Interview Samata

ALIENS Live at Royal Albert Hall

Throwback to our squad last Sunday at the #AliensLive performance at the Royal Albert Hall – makeup by @OliverMakeUpIsArt. I was talking to her about it (I'm about to start reading it myself) and Vivienne's new book is scorching to say the least and one of her most personal pieces yet. Vivienne Westwood began Get A Life, her online diary, in 2010 with an impassioned post about Native American activist Leonard Peltier. Since then, she has written two or three entries each month, discussing her life in fashion and her involvement with art, politics and the environment. Reading Vivienne's thoughts, in her own words, is as fascinating and provocative as you would expect from Britain's punk dame – a woman who always says exactly what she believes. I will always love how she speaks her mind without the intention to hurt or offend anyone. I've always believe you can be strong willed without being mean. Get A Life through any main book retailers. _______________________________________________________ #SheInspiresMe #GetALife #VivienneWestwood #AliensLive #RedCarpetGreenDress #TribeVibes #SuzyAmisCameron
