Co-founder of Omorovicza, Margaret de Heinrich has been appointed to the British Beauty Council’s Advisory Board.
Observer spoke with Margaret in 2017, within this article, Danicki explains Margaret’s beginnings in Florida, she then went on to New York where she interned for Conan O’Brien, and then on to London where she worked at Time magazine. Before the founding of Omorovicza, Margaret was the Chief of Staff to the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union in Brussels, where she attended meetings with President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Whilst being a diplomat, Margaret met her now-husband Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza, a half-British, half-Hungarian banker; and together they founded one of Europes largest independent beauty brands, Omorovicza.
“When we started Omorovicza, we had no idea we were pioneers in bringing luxury, efficacious products to market while excluding harmful ingredients,” says Omorovivza. “Now it seems that every brand coming to the market has a natural platform, which we think is wonderful.” – Margaret de Heinrich, Observer 2017
We spoke with the newly appointed Advisory Board Member to find out a more about why she wanted to join the team, and what excites her most about the British beauty industry.
What motivated you to become an Advisory Board Member with the British Beauty Council?
I was motivated to join the Advisory Board as the British Beauty Council is leading an exciting conversation between Government and beauty stakeholders. We have all been witness to the tremendous innovation in our industry and as a result, the moment has come to ensure our voice is heard within Government. As a Beauty Entrepreneur, passionate about the industry and the phenomenal talent of our piers and colleagues, I am honoured to join such a worthwhile endeavour.
What excites you most about the British beauty industry?
There is a fabulous audacious pride within British Beauty. A confidence and celebration of beauty that expresses not just how people feel but what they think as well. This fearlessness and sense of fun must be one reason why so many trends have originated here. Truly inspiring.
