FIT CFM program at 25

Congratulations to FIT's undergraduate Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing program (CFM) on celebrating its first 25 years!

Helena Rubinstein Photo Archive at the FIT Library

The Helena Rubinstein Foundation Photo Archive consists of approximately 600 photographs of Helena Rubinstein from 1897 through 1965.   

Most of them are publicity photographs from the cosmetic company, and they are quite an amazing record of the period. She was photographed with artists, celebrities, and other historical figures, and often showcased fashion, art, and jewelry.

Research like the pros!

The Wall Street Journal  (10/3/12) featured an article on "The Manicure Arms Race" (regular salon manicures vs. gel manicures).
