disclosureFoxcroft Style Stars2

Teachers do so much every day and for the most part receive little recognition and comparatively low pay for what they do.  Luckily, there are some people and some outstanding companies who celebrate teachers and help put them in the spotlight.

Foxcroft, the leader in non-iron shirts and classic lifestyle apparel for women, recently recognized the deserving public school teachers of New York City with head-to-toe makeovers in partnership with L’Appartement Prive Salon in Manhattan. Twenty women from P.S. 31 in Brooklyn were transformed into Foxcroft Style Stars this summer.

This is the second year in a row that Foxcroft has produced their Style Stars project. Partnering with P.S. 31 Brooklyn, a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, is the brand’s special way to recognize all teachers for their hard work and devotion to their communities.

L'Apparetement Prive Salon

L’Appartement Prive Salon, located off the prestigious Fifth Avenue at 57th Street, hosted the ladies for the day where they were treated to hair consultations and styling by celebrity hairstylist, Laurent Dufourg, in additional to a custom wardrobe from Foxcroft.

Janet Zukowski, who has been a teacher at P.S. 31 for over 30 years, said the day was “magical.” She added, “We felt appreciated and were treated royally. I think it was a once in a lifetime kind of event.”

Dufourg, who began his career in Paris at the age of 16, has worked with celebrities including, Gwyneth Paltrow, Johnny Depp, Sophia Loren and Tina Fey. “Working with these ladies is extremely rewarding because they leave the salon feeling like a million dollars. I love it. It is very satisfying,” Dufourg said.

“It was nice to be pampered and recognized for the work that we do in a totally different way,” LouAnn Gallo, who has taught at P.S. 31 for 15 years, said. “It was a really positive experience.”

    Definitely the Tencel Shaped 3/4 Sleeve Blouse! I adore Tencel. It looks so beautiful on and wears so well.

    What a cool idea for those P.S. 31 teachers—-and so well-deserved!

  2. Debra S

    The Electric Blue Stitch print open neck one would be the FIRST pick… then, the Bandana print. These are very nice. Longer blouses are getting hard to find. I hate that trend.. I’m not 20, with a flat as a board stomach! I want a top that goes to my thighs to look nice.

    I’d love to win the Foxcroft Textured Print Wrinkle Free Blouse, Style # 161191. Would be perfect with navy pants or skirt.

  4. Raine

    My favorite is the Dotted Circle Wrinkle Free blouse, it’s perfect for transitioning into fall and can be dressed up or down. I also loved the Dobby plaid because it was a great take on a traditional white blouse but they’re out of my size.

  5. marnie ward

    The blouse I would like to win would be the “Women’s Plus Non-Iron Solid Stretch Shaped 3/4 Sleeve Tunic”. I also love that it is a non-iron blouse.

  6. Jennifer Reed

    If possible I would like the “Erica” – Essential Non-Iron Tunic blouse from Foxcraft if I won. I am not sure what color I would choose.

  7. K-Squared

    For all the chances of winning and / or choosing, the Zebra Print Wrinkle Free Shaped 3/4 Sleeve Tunic would be my choice.It is perfect for the occasion to which it would be worn, the destict colors go beautiful with the slacks I purchased my mother. In the effort to inspire her to heal quickly as she has undergone 2 operations this year (still more to arise).
