Marian translates her designs onto herself. Stunning!


Knockout Nail Art

February 24th, 2012 / Posted by natasha

We’ve always been in awe of our Pro Nail students and grads who create little Louvre-worthy masterpieces on such tiny digits… (with perfectly groomed cuticles, too). Pro Nail grad Steph Berry has been killing it in the Nail Art world with her extreme knockout nails and distinct style. Weapons on the trigger finger, chain-wrapped red talons and fierce studs on the ring. Anyone looking to get an original, cool-looking mani now knows who to turn to.

Check this out… MTV Style and Sweetlife have just fallen in love with Steph’s mega talent and skill & even Jermaine Dupri gave her a shout out on her rad creation. One look at her blog, Haus of Lacquer, and you’ll see why some of the top industry pros want to collaborate.

And because we think it’s stunning, here’s a creative she recently did nails for!Photographer: Jackson Zhao, Hair: Chris of Key Hair Studio, Makeup: Blanche Macdonald grad/instructor Andrea Tiller, Model: Britt S

A ‘Very Classy’ Champagne Toast to Derek Blasberg

February 10th, 2012 / Posted by natasha

When he’s not being the Editor at Large for Harper’s Bazaar, globe trotting, lunching with the likes of model Anja Rubik and attending soirees and shows thrown by some of the biggest names in Fashion, New York based Fashion writer Derek Blasberg has found the time to go on a world-wide book tour… and a very classy one at that!

The Bay hosted this swanky little event in their sleek, high-end designer section, The Room, to toast the launch of Derek’s latest book – a cheekily-written New York Times bestseller titled Very Classy: Even More Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady. Having had contributed to Vogue, Style.com, W, and Elle and with years of experience partying uptown and downtown, mingling with the fashion and social elite from near and far, Derek is an expert on perfect social behaviour in every social situation. That’s why his etiquette tip-filled book, Very Classy, is one to be excited about.

Gathered amongst all the Erdem, Proenza Schouler and Mugler were Vancouver’s fiercest Fashion stars, including Blanche Macdonald Fashion staffers and grads and, notably, the guest of honour’s stunning DJ/Model friend Leigh Lezark. Everyone left the party with books signed by Derek (who, btw, seems to also have a special talent in remembering everyone’s names), while Team Blanche (our Fashion students) worked the room and male Liz Bell models served up a choice of oversized classy/trashy pins and champagne and wine for everyone.

That’s pure class in our books!

Thanks to Fashion instructor/grad Lyndi Barrett of Lj PR & our very own Shaina Azad for the party pics!

Follow him and his life on Twitter @DerekBlasberg. He’s hilarious. You won’t regret it.
