The Precious Awards have been rooting for women of colour in business, leadership and work for over a decade. This summer the organisation proudly presents the inaugural Precious Lifestyle Awards in celebration of excellence across a broader range of creative sectors. With the finals being hosted on Tuesday, 24th July 2018 at exclusive members club, The Curtain.
Inspired by the many industrious women seen launching lifestyle brands, often from a kitchen table or through utilising the latest technology, and often whilst juggling motherhood, full-time jobs (or both), Foluke Akinlose MBE, founder of the Precious Awards decided it was time to create a new programme to honour this tribe of creative women.
Ms Akinlose said:
“I am honoured to have this additional opportunity to celebrate and applaud the achievements of women of colour. The hair and beauty industry isn’t known for being the most inclusive, so it’s been exciting to see the emergence of some very innovative brands for and by women of colour over the last few years. This lack of visibility can be seen in the fashion arena. Women of colour are creating their own platforms and getting their voices heard via podcasts and books. I cannot wait to see the gems of creativity and innovation that we are set to unearth.”
The awards ceremony will be hosted by the talented and warmly infectious Lisa Bent (columnist and founder of Self-Central), the awards judges include respected freelance journalist and editor of Black Hair magazine, Keysha Davis, media and broadcasting queen, Angie Greaves, culturally connected PR & Communications consultant, Iola C. Williams, one of the UK’s best-loved skincare experts Antonia Burrell and Suki Fuller – an Analytical Storyteller and globally recognised speaker, mentor and business advisor.
The Precious Lifestyle Awards will shine a light on women of colour in all their glory by showcasing some of the best hair, beauty and fashion brands, celebrating the best podcasts, applauding social media influencers and highlighting the best writing talent of the last year.
Join the celebrations on Tuesday, 24th July 2018 where the finalists of the Precious Lifestyle Awards will take to the spotlight in an evening dedicated to rooting for women of colour. Get your tickets online HERE.
