Helena Rubinstein: Beauty is Power exhibition opens today


This unique exhibition at the Jewish Museum, New York designed by Feilden Fowles in collaboration with A Practice for Everyday Life, opens its doors to the public today. This is the first exhibition to explore the ideas, innovations, and influence of the legendary cosmetics entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein (1872 – 1965). Madame (as she was universally known) helped break down the status quo of taste by blurring boundaries between commerce, art, fashion, beauty, and design. Through 200 objects Beauty Is Power reveals how Rubinstein’s unique style and pioneering approaches to business challenged conservative taste and heralded a modern notion of beauty, democratized and accessible to all.

HRH The Countess of Wessex opens Fitzjames

Feilden Fowles most recently completed education building was opened today by HRH the Countess of Wessex. The new building forms the academic hub of the school and provides six classrooms and a large central learning resource space, together with learning support and office accommodation. The Headmaster, Richard Fenwick, shared his vision for this fantastic new resource: “We are very excited about this building because, as well as being an architectural and constructional triumph, we believe it makes a clear and strategic statement about the future of education. Its semi-open-plan design allows pupils to learn with an increasing amount of independence, breaking out of the classroom and utilising the technological resources that they have, literally at their fingertips. This will enable them to become equipped for the future as confident, independent and inter-dependent learners”.

Feilden Fowles are thrilled to have received the RIBA South West award for the Lee Building at Ralph Allen School. The school is delighted and former principle Libby Lee described the building eloquently at its recent opening:

‘The building is an inspirational space, placed in a landscape that it powerfully exploits and relates to. It offers a very flexible learning space and has a civic presence to equal its proud place in the community. I had not imagined so much could be achieved in a single building.’
