School House founder Christopher Skinner and Ami Colé founder Diarrha N’Diaye-Mbaye will soon take the stage in conversation at Beauty Accelerate 2022 in NYC, which is taking place September 28-29. Registration is now open.
Ami Colé, a clean beauty brand created for melanin-rich skin, launched in 2021 with face and lip products, including the Skin-Enhancing Tint, the Lip Treatment Oil and the Light-Catching Highlighter, a translucent balm made for melanin-rich skin tones.
Since then, the New York Times has declared: "Ami Colé Fills a Void In Black Beauty Products," while The Cut praised its setting powder and Today called Ami Colé a "trailblazing beauty brand you should know about."
In addition, the editors at Glamour have said of the brand's Lash-Amplifying Mascara: "This mascara gives me insane length."
School House, meanwhile, is a beauty-centric creative agency based in NYC specializing in beauty. The firm features capabilities across a wide swath of disciplines, including strategy, branding, content concept and creation, architecture, experiential design, and industrial design, including packaging and virtual merchandising.
It also has an enviable roster of clients, including Ami Colé, Elemis, Beekman 1802, Kosas, Briogeo and Dr. Dennis Gross, to name a few. And, in 2020, School House worked on DevaCurl’s rebrand, including packaging.
In 2020, Skinner told Surface: "At the end of the day, I love helping people and creating exciting work for consumers. Seeing a brand invented or reinvented, surprise its consumers, and move ideology in an industry gives me goosebumps. It not only gets me out of bed in the morning, the anticipation keeps me up late at night."
School House recently opened School House Studios, a content-creating venture for its partnered beauty and wellness brands and brought Beekman 1802's latest LaGuardia airport shop to life.
Join us at Beauty Accelerate 2022 to hear these two beauty thought leaders discuss innovation, design and more.
