Student Styles Rip the Runway

 

With cool happenings & fashionable events going on in every pocket of the city, a few of our students got in on the action by volunteering their time & talent at two recent Fashion Show Events.

Talent is blossoming in this community and many people are finding ways to express their creativity and art.  This winter fashion season, a few of our students were able to experience the fashion world behind the scenes...

"This was my second fashion show" mentioned Monique, "I really enjoyed watching all the looks come together and the ideas that the designers created". "It was very intense and fun at the same time.  Ive never serviced so many people in one day" Sam says once she's finished with the models. The girls were very excited about the opportunity.

Just a few weeks prior to The INspire Movement created by Shanise Ollie, Kala Wilburn held her 2nd Annual Vehicle City Fashion Week.  Two students including Monique also participated in the event.

Both Ollie and Wilburn ask that the ladies that participated in the events as hairstyles create a specific looks they wanted their models to have. 

The students that participated in both events did their best at creating those hairstyles which pieced together the LOOK!

As a school we believe in the importance of students stepping out and getting a taste of  real world experience.  When learning meets this playing field we call the real world, is when the real learning actually begins, and thus a diverse well rounded cosmetologist is born. 

As students it is essential that you learn as much as you can, push yourself, take on challenges so that you may grow as a cosmetologist and exceed far in this industry.

Both events were created to bring a positive light to the community and to help others recognize all the great things that this city has to offer.
