MAINENTRANCE: Non- Branded Artist Education Destination

Workshops at MAINENTRANCE, a New York-based, non-branded artist education destination, creatively blends technical skills with trend awareness. “Our workshops embrace knowledge from a broader industry—including fashion, film, music, art and architecture,” says co-founder Berry Bachen, creative director at-large for TIGI Colour. Some of their most popular classes include: Classic Confidence (modern updates to timeless looks), Trend Interpretation (beauty and fashion trend insight) and On Set Skills (styling techniques for editorial shoots). “Our aim is to inspire a think tank of students, educators and clients interested in combining imagination with business viability,” says co-founder DJ Riggs, whose styles have appeared in W, French Vogue and Nylon. MAINENTRANCE also offers photo shoot production, as well as by-appointment color and cuts at their chic space located adjacent to New York’s Ace Hotel. For more information, visit
