Aesthetic Awards – Winter 2022
At the end of each cohort session, we host a special event — The Aesthetic Awards — in which we recognize our top students as well as best-in class aesthetic brands. Essentially, it’s our version of The Oscars! Thought we’d share a few highlights from last month’s ceremony and our top aesthetic picks for winter 2022. Cheers!
Бальзам на душу (“a balm for the soul”)
Those living in the former Soviet bloc know the ill effects of Stalin-era repression and terror. They crave aesthetics — not despite it, but because of it. Once denied basic freedoms of beauty, self-expression and joy, people become all the more intent on rediscovering and re-experiencing them.
