Month: June 2020

P.E. Nation co-founder Pip Edwards opens up about confidence, honouring her emotions and making space for love.

In this special Self Care Sundays mini-series produced by Studio Offline and in partnership with Estée Lauder, host Alison Rice sits down with the brand’s Australian ambassadors and experts to have an honest conversation about life on the other side of the filter.

This season, the mini-series explores our collective relationship with the word confidence. What does confidence really mean to women and what does having it help us to achieve?

The topic and series celebrates Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation, a product that allows women to wear confidence and feel empowered to take on the day. 

Alison’s next guest is P.E. Nation co-founder and Estée Lauder Australia ambassador, Pip Edwards. The pair first sat down in 2018 (episode eight) and 19 months later they catch up again, this time to talk through a more personal lens. 

Pip shares openly and honestly about confidence and what it means to her, turning 40 and the confronting realities that can come with that number, her recent reflections about her ambition, choices, and the sacrifices she’s had to make, being a single parent and making space for love, raising a conscious son, using fashion to express the way she’s feeling and why her makeup is no longer a mask.

Scientist and model Zinnia Kumar on colourism, the serious issue of skin colour stigma in South Asia and why science and spirituality can co-exist.

For episode 64 of Offline, host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with scientist, chartered ecologist and model, Zinnia Kumar

Zinnia grew up in Western Sydney in a low socio-economic area, and following some deeply impactful advice from her chemistry teacher, she applied herself within the public education system and became the first in her family to go to university. 

What was the advice? She told Zinnia that if she worked hard, she could be anything she wanted to be. Zinnia hasn’t looked back. 

An introvert who self-diagnosed and treated her own social phobia as a teenager, she now lives in London and is studying for a doctorate in colourism at Oxford University. A published scientist, Zinnia has focused her research on human attraction, examining beauty standards and ideals, and more recently, colourism — specifically the serious issue of skin colour stigma in South Asia.

Recorded in April 2020, this honest conversation is an entry point to learning more about skin colour discrimination and representation. Zinnia also opens up about modelling, the racism she experienced from Australian agencies, the potentially life-saving reading she had with a palmist, why science and spirituality can co-exist and why she chooses to practice equanimity. 

Zinnia is fascinating and she’s a woman we can learn from.
