When Henry Met Kellie
WHEN HENRY MET KELLIE
by: Kellie Rigney
Zjoosh founder Kellie Rigney was recently invited to assist the fabulous and enigmatic Henry Roth in his Personal Branding seminar for luxury travel group, Luxperience, and she spoke to audiences on the importance of personal branding.
Last week our brand founder, Kellie Rigney, had the pleasure of helping the fabulous Henry Roth in his Personal Branding Seminar for Luxperience. You might be familiar with Henry from his stints on many US television shows, including Oprah, Good Morning America, Fashion Police with Joan Rivers and Live! On The Red Carpet. He has also made many appearances on Australian television with shows such as Project Runway Australia, The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Red Carpet from Hollywood and also as Today Show’s Fashion Editor.
Henry Roth is one of Australia’s most recognisable lifestyle and fashion authority, media personality and “Makeover King”. A smart cookie, he has a Bachelor of Law and Arts from the University of Sydney and spent years working in America as a prominent fashion designer. Now based in Melbourne, Roth has an image and branding consultancy called HENRY ROTH PRESENTS and works, he says, “outside the box for maximum results”.
Henry and Kell started with morning tea in the Zjoosh Double Bay store, where Henry selected dozens of pieces, including furniture, for his Personal Branding seminar at Australian Technology Park, at which Kell was asked to present.
Kell spoke to two separate audiences during the day about the importance of personal branding – what your personal style says about who you are, and what you do. Women and men from a collection of different professions walked the runway while the audience guessed their professions. Models wore scarves, handbags and accessories by Zjoosh and makeup by Bobbi Brown. Henry was full of energy and enthusiasm having worked in the fashion industry for more than 30 years including 15 years in New York. According to Kell he “was warm, friendly and funny… I felt like we’d known each other for ages.
