Rave & Bathe with Lush x Glitterbox!
The fresh and handmade cosmetic company is excited to announce a special partnership with nightlife phenomenon and label Glitterbox, which kicks off in spectacular style with a party at the Lush House as part of the SXSW Festival 2023!
Glitterbox will take over the Lush House (85 Rainey St, Austin, TX) on the evening of Sunday 12th March, with live performances from vocal trio Dames Brown and DJ Melvo Baptiste.
Bringing onboard talent from across the label’s roster, the exquisite Detroit supergroup Dames Brown will showcase a preview of their forthcoming soul and funk-infused album, alongside Glitterbox favourite Melvo Baptiste who will be hitting the decks with his unique blend of rare groove, funk and disco-house.
Accompanying the music will be Glitterbox’s world-class performers and entertainers, treating Austin to something really out of the ordinary!
As well as ‘taking over’ the Lush House for an afternoon of conversations around wellbeing and dance music and an evening of uplifting soulful disco house, Glitterbox x Lush are also launching a special product collection in celebration of the partnership. There will be an exclusive and limited edition drop of products only available at the Lush House over its 4 day stint at SXSW 2023 (10th-13th March).
A concept that is all about being able to express yourself freely and leave your inhibitions at the door, Glitterbox is the perfect partner for Lush, a brand who believes that all are welcome and advocates for inclusivity, equity and freedom of movement.
Audiences will also be able to download the Lush App and get access to the Bathe feature, an immersive audio-visual experience that will elevate your bathtime, aid relaxation and help to create different moods. There will be two exclusive Glitterbox playlists available on Bathe, to transport users to the golden era of disco from the comfort of their own bathtub.
Speaking about the collaboration, Kalem Brinkworth, Collaborations and Concepts Senior Creative at Lush, said:
“We’re so excited to be partnering up with Glitterbox to create a limited range of products inspired by party nights and upbeat music. Self-care can be dancing to music and getting ready to rave, and that’s exactly what this collaboration is all about. With a range of glittery bath and body cosmetics that encompasses the spirit of dance culture and having fun, we can’t wait for our customers to experience the magic of Lush x Glitterbox.”
Amanda Hamilton, Events, Production & Glitterbox Creative Manager said:
“It has been a dream to work alongside the Lush team and it feels incredible to finally be able to reveal our Rave and Bathe collaboration with them. We are proud to have created a product range that is fuelled by asynergy of self-love, music, freedom of expression and fun! We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the launch than with a packed schedule of activity at South by Southwest, where we get to bring together our artists and talent for a special takeover. This is only the beginning, stay tuned for more!”
