Former Essence Editor Launches Beauty Business Camp, Aims to Foster Diversity Within Industry
If you're interested in pursuing fashion as a career, there are tons of resources out there for you, like fashion camps and conferences, not to mention the proliferation of reality TV shows which depict (somewhat unrealistically) aspects of the industry. But the beauty industry is a bit more under the radar. (Why aren't there any shows requiring contestants to make beauty products out of common grocery store items?) Now, one connected and experienced former beauty editor, Corynne Corbett, is trying to change all that with her new venture, Beauty Biz Camp, a non-profit program that teaches adolescents about the ins and outs of the beauty industry.
