Recently, the Minnesota School of Cosmetology students experienced firsthand the world of high fashion. A total of 17 students and two instructors participated in the University of Minnesota’s College of Design Align fashion show.
The day’s preparation started at 11:00 a.m. where the students first met with the models and the designers to go over the “creative vision” for the hair and makeup. Next, the students were given a tight deadline to complete the look and get the models camera ready for the photo shoot. The cosmetology students loved working with the designers to see their vision come to reality and complete the high fashion look.
Here are just some of the students’ recaps of the morning:
“I just felt inspired, my model was great, and she wanted BIG hair. I loved it.” —Sommer Lund
“The fashion show was a great experience. There was a time limit which challenged me to see how efficient I could work, I loved it! Thanks for the opportunity!” —Tianna Speidel
“It was fantastic to make the designers feel great about their work. It was great to see how the two creative fields are similar and different.” —Alyssa Krause
“It was amazing, I would definitely want to do this again!” —Tiffani Rhodes
When models finished with the photo shoots, students helped with touch ups and the work was complete. After a hard day of behind-the-scenes the students got to relax and enjoy the show!
A special thank you goes out these students and instructors who helped make the magic happen behind the scenes:
