Meeting Jo Malone; A Heroine To OAK

Meeting Jo Malone; A Heroine To OAK

Belgravia's Christmas Sunday this year was fabulously festive & we couldn't have been happier taking part for the first time & showcasing OAK Jewellery as part of this wonderful event. 

We were further delighted to be positioned opposite Jo Loves as we had an immediate design crush on their Christmas window display.  Then we got to meet the founder Jo Malone MBE & our day was made!

 Jo fell in love with fragrance & discovered an instinctual talent for creating scented products by hand in her kitchen. Word of her exceptional potions quickly spread and soon Jo was unable to keep up with demand. From these artisan beginnings Jo launched her first brand, Jo Malone London, which gained cult status around the world. In 1999, Jo sold the business to Estée Lauder Companies and remained Creative Director until she left in 2006.

Jo Malone MBE has been described as an 'English scent maverick' and the woman responsible for creating some of the world's most-loved fragrances.  She is an inspiration to business men & women all around the world. Creating a business from the ground up is a formidable undertaking so our ambition is fuelled further only by the mention that Jo Malone is on her second fantastic business. We were beyond delighted to realise that she was in store during Sunday's event.

OAK meets Jo Malone MBE at Belgravia Christmas Sunday 2015
From the gorgeous products to brand level we have always looked toward Jo Malone as a brand that inspires OAK. Learning about a female founder who has started not one but two great businesses in a competitive industry is truly motivating & we never really imagined we would get the chance to meet this incredible entrepreneur.

Trying to mask the excited super fan within, OAK co-founder Jo-anne popped in to say hello & explain what an inspiration the first creation Jo Malone & now second venture Jo Loves have been for us here in OAK HQ. Jo's kindness was apparent & she immediately empathised with OAK as a young growing brand, taking the time to come over to OAK jewellery & of course making time to take a quick snap!

We hope Jo Malone MBE will enjoy wearing her OAK necklace as we are left basking in the loveliness of one of Britain's most intelligent & mighty business women.
