Inaugural Trunk Show Featuring CITY Award Winners

Palatine, IL (August 2, 2012) - The Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) announces the first-ever CITY 2012 Beauty Trunk Show taking place this August in New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The winners of the 2012 Cosmetic Innovators of The Year (CITY) Awards were announced on June 20th in New York City. Along with this honor, the display is another step to gaining additional exposure for excellence in innovation, packaging and beauty concepts.

An all-new initiative, the beauty trunk show gives the CITY Awards winners a platform to display their award-winning products at national retailers, which include: NewBeauty at Fred Segal, Ron Robinson Apothia, C.O. Bigelow, Henri Bendel New York and Skins 6|2. The CITY Beauty Trunk Show will take place simultaneously at all retailers August 21–28.

For the inaugural trunk show, ICMAD created a special unit for the winners so they can be available for purchase at stores and online at Beauty.com. This is just one example of the association’s commitment and determination ~ ICMAD prides itself as the catalyst to growth for their members.
