One of the most quintessential supermodels of this generation, Karolína Kurková has made a name for herself in the fashion industry. From being featured on the cover of Vogue as one of the youngest models at just 16 years old to starring in ad campaigns and walking in shows for top fashion houses including Chanel, Valentino, Prada, and Dior, Kurková’s modeling days are nothing short of iconic. Aside from modeling, Kurková’s passion lies in wellness. At 19 years old, she began experimenting with alternative and holistic practices in both beauty and health, ultimately living her truth that beauty and well-being come from within.
Constantly inspired to evolve and challenge herself, Kurková co-founded Gryph & IvyRose, a company dedicated to the wellness of children from the inside out. Realizing the need in the market for wellness, health, and beauty in the kids-and-family space, Kurková, alongside renowned pediatrician Stephen Cowan, MD, has created a modern, approachable line of health-minded products for children. Stocked in over 150 retailers nationwide, Gryph & IvyRose fuses traditional Chinese medicine and attentive pediatric practices to provide innovative, best-selling products such as the immune-boosting elixirs and probiotic chocolates.
