Georg Jensen teamed up with InStyle and marie claire to host an intimate breakfast to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer. The star-studded guest list gathered at Fred’s in Sydney to hear the inspiring words of ovarian survivor Monika Tasic and leading research scientist, Dr Kristine Warton.
The current statistics around ovarian cancer are frightening. Every year, more than 1600 Australia women are diagnosed, and the insidious disease claims more than 1000 lives every year.
Megan Hess, international fashion illustrator and friend of Georg Jensen, has created a pair of stunning bespoke illustrations in support of OCRF. These illustrations have been created incorporating the Offspring Heart pendant, raising awareness for the campaign and the cause it supports. InStyle photographed Megan in her studio as she worked on these illustrations for us.
Megan has also appeared in our Chatswood and Chadstone boutiques, personalising and signing copies of the illustrations for those who purchased an Offspring Heart on the evening. Every customer who purchases an Offspring Heart in the month of August will go into the draw to win the large-scale illustration by Megan Hess.
