Who We Are

When Sydney's Powerhouse Museum decided to stage an exhibition tracing the history of contemporary beauty, the curators immediately sought out Madame Korner - the founder of Australia's first professional beauty therapy training school, and a family steeped in the beauty business since 1904.

One of the most fascinating parts of the exhibition was a recreation of a "1950's Beauty Parlour", created under the direction of Judit Korner. A screened history was assembled from old Cinesound Newsreels with rare footage of film that showed the classes and the graduation of the first Madame Korner College.
