FACE Stockholm announced its collaboration for PRIDE with Derek Warburton, a world-renowned celebrity stylist, television personality, humanitarian, and Editor-in-Chief of Gurus and Mr Warburton Magazine. The collection is named after Warburton's moniker, "Derek Fabulous".
The Derek Fabulous collection will include a curated palette of colorful eyeshadows, lip colors, and a tube of Warburton’s unique mix of rainbow glitter that represents embracing the boldness of self-expression and celebrates acceptance. Warburton elaborates on what this collection means to him, "PRIDE is a celebration rooted in standing up against those who want to extinguish the freedom to express all gender identities and sexual orientations. This collection will be a tribute to those who have stood up for true self-expression and the allies that have stood beside them".
FACE Stockholm is celebrating 40 years this year as a female-owned makeup and skincare company founded in Stockholm, Sweden. Their values have led them as people and as a brand from its inception. FACE Stockholm built itself on self-expression and individuality, clean ingredients, and sustainability. Those tenants have enabled the company to continue as a self-directed independent brand for forty years. This collaboration recognizes the progress in inclusivity, diversity, and the acceptance of people living and loving freely and expressing their most authentic selves while also acknowledging that there is still more work to do.
"Today, we see an alarming amount of new legislation and bills introduced to restrict LGBTQ+ rights. We take this opportunity to support our LGBTQ+ friends, colleagues, family, and all those who will be hurt or diminished by these laws. At FACE Stockholm, we say Gay and are proud to celebrate PRIDE with Derek Fabulous," said FACE Stockholm founder Martina Arfwidson.
