April 13, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) – Lather, a Raleigh hair salon, is donating its stylists’ hair and make-up expertise to prepare the runway models for “Threads: Senior Collection 2009” to be held Thursday, April 16, at College of Textile’s Courtyard, North Carolina State University, in Raleigh, NC, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
“Threads” will showcase the work of 21 seniors from the College of Textile’s Senior Design Studio. Each student designer created three to six ensembles that the models will present during the show.
Lather is a full-service, upscale Raleigh hair salon that specializes in complete makeovers, including airbrush makeup application, so owner and senior stylist Jessica Williams was delighted when the budding fashion designers at N.C. State asked her to design the hair and makeup for their models.
“Preparing models for the runway is just like doing a complete makeover,” said Lather’s owner and senior stylist Jessica Williams. “And we always enjoy doing hair and makeup on location. It allows us to be really creative. Besides that, we love working with up-and-coming designers, such as the seniors in the College of Textiles. I was honored when they asked us to participate. I can’t wait to see the fashions they’ve created!”
Opened in October 2008, Lather Hair Salon marked its sixth month in business last month by going on location to provide professional hair styling for a fashion spread for Social The Magazine featuring spring couture from Catch 22, a boutique in Raleigh’s trendy Glenwood South district.
“Threads: Senior Collection 2009” coincides with the College of Textile’s Industry Open House. Seats are available for $5. Standing room is free. For more information, email
