The multi-awarding EF MEDISPA clinic chain was built up by Esther Fieldgrass and her family, supported by interior designers, Brand, marketing and PR specialists and web developers.
This same team is now directing their unique experience towards assisting EF Consulting’s clients to develop their own Medispa projects.
Esther Fieldgrass has spent the past four decades launching business ventures in the retail, manufacturing and service sectors. Esther opened her first business when she was 20 which she built into an award winning chain of hair & beauty salons. Her personal achievements whilst she was hairstyling include the Clairol Award, sylist to the Miss World Extravaganza and the youngest woman to be inducted into Intercoiffure des Dames.
In the 1980s, Esther moved to Hong Kong, where she developed a vertically integrated international fashion business. Always an industry pioneer, she was the first western woman to open a factory in Mainland China, when that country was just opening up to foreign investment.
Esther is the creative inspiration behind the multi-award winning EF MEDISPA chain of aesthetic clinics. Her opinions on aesthetic treatments are regularly sought by leading beauty and fashion journalists. She is frequently quoted in the national press, the fashion glossies and specialist trade magazines. She is a regular guest speaker at medical aesthetic conferences on topics related to business management, marketing and product knowledge. She is the first port of call for advice on product development for equipment manufacturers seeking to penetrate the UK aesthetics market. She is a personal adviser to L’Oreal assisting with the product development of their Skinceuticals brand. She sits on the Aesthetic Medicine Advisory Board.
With this expertise and four decades of experience, Esther is uniquely placed to guide clients of EFC right through from conceptual planning to the creation and operation of a successful Medispa facility.
