Day two of Fashion Frenzy was a smashing success! Our students showed up bright eyed and ready for a long day of pushing their creativity to the limits. The day began with a mentoring breakfast with Rocky Vitelli of Farouk. Rocky and the students spent the mealtime discussing what they could expect from the day and how to get the most out of the experience.
After breakfast, we relocated to the model prep room where the students reunited with the models they’d chosen for their looks the day before. It was exciting to experience the action of the backstage area and to watch industry icons prepping their models right alongside our Fashion Frenzy finalists. Luis and Rocky continued mentoring our students and helping them perfect their work.
The day flew by and soon it was time for our finalists to present their looks onstage in front of the Intercoiffure members and attendees. The final work the students presented exceeded everyones expectations and created quite a challenging task for our esteemed panel of judges. Our third place finalist was Chelsea Hall.
For second place we had a tie between Valentina Perez and Erin Phenix.
And our first place winner was Jessica Fair. As she was being awarded first place by Luis Alvarez of Aquage and Lois Christie, president of Intercoiffure, Jessica recieved two business cards from salon owners along with the promise of a position waiting for her!
After the competition was done, our finalists and winner spent some quality time with their models and with Babak to capture their looks in a photo shoot. We ended Fashion Frenzy with the Intercoiffure Rock and Roll White Party where the students were able to continue networking with the top salons in the industry.
Fashion Frenzy 2013 was an incredible experience for our finalists and for us here at CosmoProf. We feel honored to have witnessed the growth and opportunities our finalists have been exposed to over the weekend and have learned so much from the event ourselves. We are only sad that Fashion Frenzy 2014 is an entire year away!
