AMBI® Skincare, developed by and for people of color and a trusted name in the beauty industry for more than 50 years, is thrilled to be partnering with EMERGE! A Fashion Runway Show, which is celebrating a decade of diversity on the runway. As a lead sponsor, all five of AMBI®’s The Next Great Face Search winners will be featured in tomorrow’s star-studded virtual event, either as models or show commentators, alongside some of the top established and emerging talent in the fashion industry. The winners will all be using AMBI® products to achieve a flawless, camera-ready complexion.
The Next Great Face Search of AMBI® was launched in May 2020 in partnership with model and reality star Cynthia Bailey and The Bailey Agency to uncover the next generation of brand ambassadors who embody the unique beauty and inclusivity of the American multicultural community. The diverse group of winners –including Camera Carter, Teanna Gilliam, Saniyyah Bilal, Destiny Thompson, and Heidy Jantzen – all beautifully embody the AMBI® brand spirit and also made the perfect fit for participation in designer Terri Stevens’ funkinbeautiful Designs show at EMERGE!
“Funkinbeautiful Designs is for the woman who knows who she is – she drips in confidence in her own beautiful style. I design for the woman who when she enters the room everything comes to a halt. The AMBI® Next Great Face winners represent the unique beauty that I love for my brand,” says Stevens.
AMBI®’s Head of Marketing Nicole Ray Robinson sees the EMERGE! platform and the funkinbeautiful Designs label as the perfect merging of shared philosophies and a continued reflection of AMBI®’s commitment to expanding the beauty conversation around people of color.
“At AMBI® we are committed to empowering women and men of every shade to showcase their own definitions of beauty. Our winners were selected not only because of their #GreatFaces, but also because they represent diverse backgrounds. Each has her own story to tell, and we’re thrilled to offer them the opportunity to add New York Fashion Week as their newest chapter,” says Robinson.
First Place Winner of The AMBI® Next Great Face Search Camera Carter echoes similar sentiments saying, “Being given the opportunity to be a part of this show is really a blessing. New York Fashion Week has always been a dream of mine and I’m so excited to represent AMBI® as the Next Great Face while being chosen to walk in EMERGE!’s 10th anniversary show. It is truly an honor.”
