Since she can remember, Barbara was always concocting lotions and potions in her kitchen, creating a delicious skin cream or mixing a delicate fragrance. Growing up in Germany in a family entrenched in the world of high fashion as owners of a couture clothing line and working as a model herself, she spent many hours backstage at fashion shows surrounded by beauty products.

As with all of her projects, Barbara has been involved in every step of the development of Pretty Woman from conception to launch. She worked closely with perfumers to formulate the exact scent she desired. She selected the bottle from the prestigious Versailles de Porchet in Paris and worked closely with the graphic designers to craft a package and label that reflects the pure, elegant essence of the fragrance.

Pretty Woman is currently available in the UK online at for around £50 for 1.7oz. The Product has already been launched in speciality retailers in the US including Studio Beauty Mix at Fred Segal, Planet Blue, Private Edition in Nashville, The Peninsula Hotel in L.A., Stanley Korshak in Dallas, Woodley and Bunny in Williamsburg.

Ltd Ed Roy Orbison 12-String Signature Acoustic Guitar

Barbara continues to manage with great success the legacy of Roy Orbison and has recently seen the launch of the limited Edition Roy Orbison 12-String Signature Acoustic Guitar.

Produced in cooperation with the legendary singer/songwriter Roy Orbison estate, the model is based upon Roy's own 1962 Epiphone "Bard" 12-string acoustic guitar. Orbison used his original Epiphone acoustic to write and perform many of his most well-known songs including perhaps his biggest hit, "Oh, Pretty Woman."

"As a young, brilliant guitar player growing up in West Texas, Roy would have never dreamt that he would one day have his own Epiphone signature guitar named after him. Roy wrote 'Oh Pretty Woman' on his Epiphone 12-string acoustic which has remained iconic to this day. I hope the next generation of artists will feel inspired to write another great rock-n-roll song thanks to this amazing limited edition tribute to Roy," said Barbara Orbison, Roy's wife.

The Epiphone Roy Orbison 12-string is a faithful reproduction of the 1962 Bard with a solid spruce top and hand scalloped bracing. The offering of this Limited Edition model gives fans of Epiphone and Roy Orbison an unprecedented opportunity to own a classic, vintage vibe 12 string and a piece of one of the most famous and iconic American singer/songwriters of our time.
