From star signs to tarot cards and crystals, we’re exploring the new frontier of self-care with Yasmin Sewell, founder of wellness-meets-fragrance brand, Vyrao, and Alice Bell, NYC’s chicest astrologer and our go-to person for anything star- (and sun, and moon!) related.
First, Yasmin joins Kate and Zara in the studio to take us on her journey from Sydney to London, where she opened inimitable fashion boutique Yasmin Cho in her early twenties, and later became one of fashion’s top tastemakers for the likes of Browns, Liberty and Farfetch. Then, of course, we jump into the present, where Yasmin finds herself homing in on her long-time passion for energetic healing, connection and master perfumery through Vyrao – a fragrance brand unlike any other.
Zara then jumps on the line with Alice, a US Vogue fashion assistant-turned-astrologer whose initial interest in better understanding her identity, purpose, quirks and love life became a full-time career. Between chart readings, mentoring, education, digital content, brand partnerships and her podcast, Alice is giving us the 411 on Astrology 101 – and, how best to handle Mercury’s current retrograde.
