The iconic beauty company celebrates its 80th anniversary with a free to the public exhibition called “Enamoured: 80 years of Revlon” at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden.
A true homage to the trendsetting beauty company founded in 1932 by Charles Revson, his brother Joseph and chemist Charles Lachman. A celebration of the household-name telling the story of the trio when they started with a single new nail product. The world’s first polish created through a unique manufacturing process which allowed the use of pigments instead of dyes, they named their groundbreaking product “nail enamel”. After years of research and developing the revolutionary nail enamel in a variety of opaque colors, Revlon started selling their new innovating product in 1937 at drug stores and department stores.
From the mere beginning, its groundbreaking beauty products, beauty campaigns and ties to the fashion industry, the exhibition is an absolute must go see for beauty and fashion lovers.
Experience all the revolutionary moments surrounded by stunning visuals. Curated by Ryan Lanji, the exhibition also features work from Jenny Longworth (Revlon’s UK nail ambassador ), Lorna May Wadsworth (fine art painter,) Alex Noble ( fashion designer/art director), Spiros Halaris (illustrator), Nicola Saint Marc ( photographer/filmmaker) as well as artists Bobby Patmore, Linton Meagher and Debra Frances showcasing their interpretation through the finest art inspired by Revlon.
“Enamoured: 80 years of Revlon” will run from November 30th to December 2nd at London’s Film Museum, Covent Garden, 45 Wellington Street, London WC2E 7BN
