Artisan – the Great Lengths meaning
Artisan – a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
Earlier this year we revealed our new 2015 collection named ‘Artisans of Enhancement’ and behind this name was a strong message. The Artisan is the stylist, the unsung hero, pristine in appearance but unnoticed by the outside world. Creator of beauty and art, the Artisan is a master in preening and perfecting his subjects.
Is it time you became a Great Lengths Artisan, or took your skills to the next level…?
