The event at the iconic Art Institute of Chicago will include an intimate Legacy Award dinner followed by a Runway Fashion Show that showcases sponsored NextGen teams and their mentors. Horst’s partner in life and business Kiran Stordalen and his daughter Nicole Thomas-Rechelbacher will accept the award honoring his contributions to the industry.
All proceeds benefit The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, which has raised more than $5M in scholarships for aspiring beauty and wellness professionals. “Our fund-raising Beauty Changes Lives Experience,” notes Lynelle Lynch, president of the non-profit Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, “allows us all to pay forward by supporting the next generations in beauty.
“Honoring Horst,” added Lynch, “is a privilege for the Foundation and in doing so we also honor the thousands of industry members who were touched by Horst, by his life’s work and his talent for encouraging success in others.”here.
