We are proud to announce that with support from our valued guests the Institute of Beauty and Wellness was able to fundraise and donate $7,216.37 to After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD), which provides one-to-one emotional support to anyone impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis in our communities.

Catwalk for Water

Sustainable Fashion for Clean Water Around the Globe

The Institutes of Beauty and Wellness annually celebrate Earth Month with two evenings of stunning, sustainable fashion designed by the industry’s best up-and-coming beauty professionals, with all proceeds from ticket sales benefiting clean water around the globe. Students across all programs are invited to collaborate.

Institute alumni and current students across all programs, and our creative community, are invited to join forces to create looks designed completely from repurposed materials. From found objects sourced at local junkyards to materials re-discovered within personal stash bins, sustainable fashion levels up in a way that begs to be experienced!

Fully conceptualized looks from hair-to-toes are judged by beauty industry professionals, including Milwaukee and Madison-based salon owners. Teams are judged on creativity, gown* construction, hair, makeup, and visual cohesiveness of each model. The winning student team is rewarded with a $1,000 scholarship; 2nd and 3rd placing teams win Aveda product and tool gift bags.

Audience members are invited to cheer on their favorite looks, view showcased fashion pieces up-close, indulge in services provided by Institute students including hand massages and makeup touchups, and hangout with beauty colleagues and professionals in a relaxed fun environment.

100% of proceeds from ticket sales benefit a local charity partner and Aveda’s global partner Charity:Water.
