Celebrity Make Over

Founded by celebrity make up artist Janae Chan and famous actress Mariane Chan, this beauty school had vast network within the entertainment industry.  Their students could practice at real fashion shows, filming sets and PR events, an advantage over other similar institutes.

As recruiting students is of fundamental importance, we try to simulate the excitement of backstage and fashion workshop, letting the students to see themselves as make up artist and fashion designers.

Open days are frequent and students usual come in group or with family members, we prepare large reception and seating area for their comfort.  Plenty of walls for students to display their design and published work, inspiring each other to do better and for prospective students to under the course.

It was tough to house a make school and fashion workshop in an office building, in the end another floor was added in order to satisfy the huge numbers of students.
