Connected Beauty Concept of 2050 FIDM Competition
FIDM, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, is a one-of-a-kind college of the applied arts with locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County, and San Diego. We had the honor of collaborating with FIDM undergraduate students at the Los Angeles campus. They worked on an innovative new project titled, Connected Beauty Concept of 2050.
The 2018 edition of Cosmoprof North America will be hosting an educational session titled, The Connected Beauty Product of 2050. In light of this session, students were challenged to come up with their connected beauty concept for 2050. This conference will highlight the winning idea and two runner-ups from the semester team challenges. Now you can review the top three finalists and vote for the one idea you think is the coolest and most likely to be a reality in 2050. The winning concept will be determined through public voting open from June 16th through July 6th, 2018.
“This has been such a great learning experience for the students, from having to research new technology to challenging themselves to really innovate and imagine the possibilities and interpretations of beauty in the future. We are thrilled that Cosmoprof partnered with FIDM on this, and the students are really excited to get the industry’s feedback.
—Tina Perez, Director, Beauty Marketing & Product Development, FIDM
Review the Three Concepts to Cast Your Vote
NU-YU: By ALYSHA FREEZE & QUIANA JOHNSON
Nu-Yu is technology that protects you on earth and in space. On earth, you’re protected from UV rays and pollution. In space, Nu-Yu protects against cosmic rays and debris, also allowing you to breathe. Beauty add-ons, such as 3D printed make-up and skin health monitoring, may also be purchased. Nu-Yu is activated by neural lace mesh technology that dissolves into the bloodstream to form a brain computer interface. Mesh is dissolved by consuming an edible water sphere or dissolvable sticker. When activated by thinking, it projects an invisible force field for protection.CHROMA: By: MEGAN SATTERFIELD & SHUIHAN DING
Chroma is the ultimate beauty device that instantly perfects, protects, and corrects the skin’s outermost layer utilizing a nanotech-infused second skin. The handheld device allows users to customize their skin tone, providing a diverse selection of natural or vivid pigments and patterns to choose from, ultimately encouraging color fluidity. Our second-skin layer masks all of the skin’s imperfections, while simultaneously protecting and treating it with skincare and pollution/SPF properties. The customer is given the freedom to enhance the skin while having it act as a canvas to create and express.
KUALI: By: CARLA COLUNGA & LAURA METZGER
Kuali means “to be good” in Nahuatl. We created a futuristic product that still feels human, a product that will be good for your skin and makes you feel good. The invisible Kuali patch is a thought-control device applied to the bottom of your chin that projects any makeup look onto your face without the need for cosmetics. With a simple thought, Kuali can change your look as many times as you want.
Finalists’ concepts will be featured exclusively at the show, while the winning team will be in attendance to present their concept in a complimentary session during Cosmoprof North America on Monday July 30th from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm. To vote for a concept, text your favorite team: Nu-Yu, Chrome or Kuali to 702-558-8460.
