Yesterday marked the start of Selfridges’ 6 week event schedule entitled ‘The Beauty Project.’ Featuring relaxation sessions, a poetry workshop, exclusive product launches, talks and immersive beauty experiences, ‘The Beauty Project’ aims to explore our definition of beauty and how this will change in the future.

As expected, the concept of ageing plays a key role. This Saturday there will be a discussion of Advanced Style – a documentary about a group of inspirational elderly New York street-stylers, and on the 20th May Sisley will be holding a panel discussion about age and beauty. This film on the subject entitled ‘Change is a Beautiful Thing’, by acclaimed director Kathryn Ferguson, is the first in a series of four films that explore beauty in today’s society.
