Laura Mercier; the world renowned makeup artist and brand founder selected the members herself.
“I am beyond excited about where the brand is headed,” says Mercier, “and believe it is extremely important to partner with new makeup artists – like Mario, Pati and Jenn – who see things differently and will explore new ways to use and apply our products.”
Dedivanovic’s work as a Collective member will debut with the Fall 2017 campaign through "Mercier Muse". This is a new program by the brand that celebrates individuality. He created a stunning look for Suki Waterhouse that has everyone on their feet!
The brand has nothing but compliments for Dedivanovic’s work, highly impressed with his sense of colour and layout. Mercier herself believes him to be an outstanding talent in the world of makeup, claiming that his work is truly beautiful. “His dedication to artistry aligns so well with the brand’s philosophy and his true passion for education is one of the things I admire most about him.”
Mario Dedivanovic himself has felt honoured to work with Laura Mercier. He said, "Since the beginning of my career, Laura has been an inspiration to me as an artist. I am honoured she personally asked me to work with her brand and create looks for her new campaigns."
