THE TEMPLE academy Participates in NYC’s Lingerie Fashion Week
Staff and Future Professionals of THE TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School had the privilege of styling hair and makeup at Canoe Studios in New York during Lingerie Fashion Week, the first Fashion Week worldwide exclusively created for intimate apparel brands. The event was held from Thursday, February 20th through Saturday, February 22nd.
THE TEMPLE was the official backstage beauty sponsor, while Ultimate Face Cosmetics sponsored the makeup. The fashion show had an exciting roster of domestic and international designers, innovative sponsors and a sprawling new venue. Thrilled to call Canoe Studios home, the new venue housed 20,000+ square feet of sweeping studio space with wraparound views of the Hudson River, offered ample space for runway shows and presentations as well as a centrally-located sponsor lounge with a seamless connection between the venue areas. Canoe is located within the prestigious Starrett-Lehigh Building at 601 West 26th Street, a creative landmark located in the heart of Manhattan’s gallery district.
Will Webb, a Temple Future Professional, raved, “The NY Lingerie Fashion Show was such an amazing and gratifying experience. As a cosmetology student, being able to work alongside with the designers to complete their looks and watch the show come together was an experience unlike any other!”
Maddie Schneider, another Temple Future Professional, also exclaimed, “The experience was absolutely amazing! I learned a lot of new makeup techniques that I didn’t know how to do before, and I learned a lot about time management. This experience definitely helped me with my speed and being conscious with my work.
It was awesome to experience the “behind the scenes,” and it helped me figure out what path of cosmetology I want to follow.”
THE TEMPLE was selected to participate due to their connection with Lauren Rich, founder of RichPR, a boutique PR agency based in New York specializing in fashion brands, with a particular concentration in intimate apparel. In past years, THE TEMPLE assisted backstage for the Lingerie Alliance Events in NYC.
