NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury skincare brand SK-II hosted a launch party this evening in New York City to celebrate their new Limited Edition Holiday Collection of Facial Treatment Essences and honor Priyanka Chopra and Olivia Palermo - inspirational women who have changed their destiny. The commemoration was inspired by the brand's global #ChangeDestiny campaign that challenges the belief that destiny is set at birth and celebrates women who have gone beyond limitations to pursue their dreams and shape their own best destiny.
The #ChangeDestiny campaign is the result of SK-II's latest comprehensive research on skin science and shows that it's never too early or too late for women to take control of their destiny and achieve the beautiful skin they've always wanted. To support SK-II's commitment to empowering women to take control of their futures and achieve their dreams, the honorees lent their own incredible stories of change, including awarded actress, Priyanka Chopra. Priyanka comments: "I have always believed that when a woman is empowered, she can change destinies...not just for herself, but for her family and the community at large…and when empowered women come together, there is no hurdle that can stand in our way. Well done SK-II, for creating the Change Destiny campaign, and dedicating your voice and resources to encourage and empower women to challenge expectations and pursue their dreams." Joining Priyanka at the event to share her own story of change was fashion icon and businesswoman, Olivia Palermo. Olivia comments: "I have been using SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence for years! I am excited to be celebrating the new holiday collection and am so honored to be recognized by the brand as an inspirational woman that encourages others to strive for the goals." Other industry influencers were in attendance, including WeWoreWhat.com founder Danielle Bernstein who took over SK-II's Snapchat for the event. Having been a fan and partner of the brand for several years now, Danielle was excited to support SK-II again on such an impactful initiative. Danielle comments: "I've been using the Facial Treatment Essence daily and have it to thank for my radiant winter-skin glow! The new holiday bottles are beautiful and the perfect gift for any woman!" The event revealed the three new SK-II Limited Edition Holiday Facial Treatment Essences, each dressed in a beautifully crafted design inspired by traditional Japanese marbling, Suminagashi, or "floating ink" in Japanese. The art of Suminagashi was chosen for its powerful philosophy which states that there is no wrong drop; each dot and swirl come together to create a unique art piece. Designed in red, blue and green, this art transforms SK-II's iconic Facial Treatment Essence into the season's must-have gift. One that serves as a reminder of one's power to paint their own path, in the same way that the simple ink and water of Suminagashi art can be transformed into a beautiful masterpiece, one drop at a time.
