ORS Olive Oil hosted an invite-only dinner party celebrating the 11th Anniversary of the Godmother of Brown Beauty Blogging Afrobella!

The private dinner party consisted of top media, bloggers and influencers in Chicago with the theme— #NoStereotypes— Shawn Tollerson, CEO of Namaste Laboratories led an one-on-one conversation with Afrobella, who shared her story and experiences of how she uses her platform to defy stereotypes of beauty.  An engaging and empowering conversation was had on why women of color should feel empowered to rock their curls however they want despite what society thinks!  Guests were encouraged to embrace who they are, their sense of style and self-expression and share it unapologetically with the world.

ORS also unveiled the ‘first look’ of their new refresh packaging and reformulated products which include Sheen Spray and its Edge Control.  The new products will be available in stores February/March of 2018. ORS continues to innovate new products for the versatile woman who is comfortable in her own skin and defines her own style through self-expression.

The event took place at Blanc Gallery Chicago in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood with dinner provided by Chef Cliff Rome of Rome’s Joy Catering. A special tribute performance to guests was provided by Gifted Keys and music by DJ MJTheBeautifulBeat!
