One of our industry’s most highly regarded beauty therapy colleges, Elly Lukas in Melbourne, has just launched an exciting new event space for the industry – the Elly Lukas Skygarden. Designed to allow students to connect, recharge and rebalance during their time at the college, the Skygarden features a stunning rooftop garden venue complete with lush greenery and outdoor seating and dining options, that all students, faculty and visitors to the college can enjoy. In fact, a BBQ has been hosted daily for students all week to ring in the occasion!

The EL team has been working tirelessly this year, despite Victoria’s lockdown, to throw open the new venue’s doors last week. October 30th played host to the official launch event, attended by guest of honour Lord Mayor Cr Sally Capp to cut the red ribbon and officially unveil the facilities. Her speech struck a personal chord, touching on Melbourne’s longstanding suffering due to COVID restrictions and the community’s sense of solidarity and desire to rebuild from this. “A lot of what Elly Lukas started with in terms of what she felt was important in education was about confidence, and that’s why of the reasons I’m absolutely delighted to be here today,” she said. “It’s about personal confidence, it’s about confidence as a community, and our confidence in rebuilding and repositioning Melbourne’s future. And you all play a part in that confidence we can have as individuals and as a city.”

Elly Lukas is currently celebrating 66 years as a leading provider of quality beauty and spa education, and continues to create new and innovative facilities for students on an ongoing basis – in line with its core philosophy of bringing students that very latest and greatest the industry has to offer. One of these is the college’s recently established dermal education house, the Australian Dermal Science Institute, which offers bachelor degree training in dermal therapy to Elly Lukas graduates. Students, faculty and industry friends of the Australian Dermal Science Institute were the first group to enjoy an official event at Skygarden this week, with a belated celebration of the Institute’s recent ABIA win for Best Educator.

The college hopes to soon be hosting many future events for students and industry to come together and celebrate the year that has been, and all of the exciting opportunities yet to come.
