Paul Mitchell Future Professionals and Alumni Hit the Stage at NY and LA Fashion Weeksby Paul Mitchell Schools on 1/17/2008
The Academy NYC – A Paul Mitchell Partner School was invited to do all the hair for the runway shows at September's Nolcha Fashion Week in New York. School owner Anne Bennett, three staff members, and four Future Professionals did the hair for hundreds of models representing 22 fashion designers.
"It was an incredible event and experience, but the coolest part was that Paul Mitchell was represented in such an amazing way," said Admissions Leader Briana Oborn. "We were the only hair product used at the event, and our Paul Mitchell Partner School logo hung all over the city as the only hair company represented at Nolcha's New York Fashion Week. The connections we made were so awesome that they want to use Paul Mitchell teams and school teams for all their events all over the world."
Brian Hawkins, a graduate of the Ohio Academy – A Paul Mitchell Partner School, had the opportunity to participate in LA Fashion Week in October. He invited his good friend, hairstylist Sam Dean, and three Future Professionals to join in the fun: Scott Tanner, Bethany Bolton, and Candace Schlosser.
The group worked under the direction of famed LA hairstylist Sean James. "The fashion designer show that we worked on was the Monarchy collection−rock 'n' roll style with an urban flair to it, very fashionable and wearable clothing," Brian said. "The team rocked out some great hair and everyone including myself had a great time doing it." Since the theme of this season's Fashion Week was "Eco-Green," the team chose Tea Tree products and the Modern Elixirs line.
