In the Fall of 2017, Chic Studios LA, School of Makeup, moved from our Santa Monica location into a space in downtown Los Angeles called CTRL Collective right next to the popular Verve Coffee shop. Located on 9th and Spring Street, we’re in the heart of the Fashion District and surrounded by many amazing restaurants and sights. It’s the perfect location for students to walk around and get a coffee before class or grab a quick lunch or dinner. We’re 10 minutes away from Union Station which is the central location for those students taking public transportation. Being in the center of the Fashion District is constantly inspiring our staff and students every day. There’s always so much happening down the street from us, whether it’s an outdoor fashion show or our building holding a major photoshoot in the space. We’re excited to be centered in a landmark that is the main hub of Los Angeles’ fashion industry.
