Helena Christensen—a  personal project

 

For Helena Christensen—who is internationally recognised for her style and artistic skills—this special project gave her a possibility to deliver a personal message reflected through the look of the two scarves.

“Its been an honor designing these scarves for women who suffer from serious diseases or undergo harsh treatments, where they end up losing their hair.  I’ve always loved wearing scarves wrapped around my hair and I have a whole collection of lovely vintage scarves.  The print I designed is a reproduction of a photograph I took of a blooming cherry tree during spring in New York City, when all flora and fauna yet again, unfolds and spreads positive energy.  I felt the graphic looking branches with the tiny sprouting leaves worked well for the visual effect.  I feel happy looking at these scarves and I hope women will feel happy wearing them.”

Partnership

 

The two forces behind the collaboration with Helena Christensen are both strong players with great individual expertise in helping women suffering the emotional and physical consequences of losing hair as a part of critical illness.
With a distribution in more that 55 countries worldwide, Christine Headwear specializes in the design and production of unique and high quality headwear in natural materials for women suffering hair loss due to critical illness. The brand’s collections provide women who suffer hair loss with an attractive selection of good, natural, tried and tested products that provide care and are comfortable to wear – physically as well as mentally.
All Christine products are CE labelled, meaning that they are classified as medical devices according to EU Directive and are subject to high demands on design and production to ensure that the products are healthy and safe for the end user.
The LGFB charitable program offers complimentary group, individual and online beauty lessons on skin and nail care, cosmetics, wigs and turbans, accessories and styling to help people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment face their diagnosis with greater confidence.
Both parties are excited about the collaboration with an international recognized profile such as Helena Christensen.

“We are very proud of this special campaign with Helena Christensen and Look Good Feel Better, which we hope will reach many women, who are struggling with both the physical and emotional side effects of losing their hair due to critical illness. Our headwear designs are created for women who have a special need for protection, and we are proud to design headwear, which makes them feel comfortable, covered and feminine in fashionable, Danish designs. To have a respected international style icon like Helena capturing this sensitive mission in her own two scarf designs is a great honour. We truly hope this campaign will inspire women who are suffering hair loss to feel stylish, more comfortable and confident”, says Tine Fuglsang, Founder and Sales and Product Director of Christine Headwear.
