The Blue Monarch opens in Weston – BWME preview party!

June 12, 2019
6:00PM – 8:00 PM

Blue Monarch
646 Boston Post Road,
Weston, MA

Mojgan Brumby, a new BWME member, has just opened Blue Monarch in the heart of Weston.

The opening of Blue Monarch is, in several ways, the culmination of a long journey. Its Iranian-born founder, Mojgan Brumby, found the moniker Blue Monarch (the butterfly known for its ability to make transatlantic flights), a fitting choice for the store that represents not only her own personal journey to the United States, but also the story behind the origins of the products she now brings to the Bay State.

The Blue Monarch skin care line consists of all-natural, effective and traditional Persian remedies passed down to Mojgan from the women in her family. Nearly 20 years in the making, Mojgan has now made available a skin care line for men and women, that uses only certifiably raw and natural ingredients, packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals and never uses synthetic and other harmful ingredients.

Join us for this very special QuickConnect, featuring great nibbles, champagne and a pretty cool swag bag of Blue Monarch’s most coveted products.
