AW19- Introducing Amber Rowan
6th October 2019
This autumn, we’ve worked with an amazing collective of seventeen individuals brought together to express their own unique style. Meet Amber aka @amberjeanrowan, a 26 year-old Irish model and actress who has founded @hairfreelife.
Amber was 15 years old when she was diagnosed with Alopecia. A friend spotted a small patch of hair missing at the back of her head during an English class, andit eventually grew larger. Within one year she was completely baldand had lost her eyebrows and eyelashes.
Amber recently set up @hairfreelife, an online community for men and women going through hair loss. This collective is designed to help them get advice about hair-loss and alopecia while becoming part of an empowered community. Amber wanted to create a safe space to share emotional and practical support through stories, advice and tutorials, covering health and wellness, beauty and fashion.
In her words:
‘Be around people you love, fill your life with people that make you happy and do things that make you feel truly alive, because hair truly means nothing. People constantly ask me what it’s like to have alopecia, but I actually can’t remember what it’s like to have hair. Plus, I don’t have to wash my hair, I canwear different wigs, that’s quite fun.
As an individual who is comfortable in her style and self, Amber doesn’t shy away from bold looks and expressing her unique self through fashion.
Going from set to subway, Amber needs comfort and style so starts on neutral ground with this cosy women’s hoodie in classic camel.
Koben Wool Coat
Some pieces are timeless and this women’s wool coat is no exception. A twist on the classic heritage check, this is a new way to do tartan wool coats, especially layered over a relaxed women’s hoodie with a street edge.
