The site is chock full of inspirational images from some of the top stylists from the 1960's to present. Oppenheim, an editor, photo journalist and ex-public relations expert, has been collecting and archiving these photos since launching her career in the late 1970's as in-house Creative Concept and Public Relations Director in-house for both Vidal Sassoon Salons USA and Canada from 1979-1981 and before that for La Coupe from 1974 to 1979. "La Coupe and I did some of the most innovative work. I am very proud of what we did then," says Oppenheim.

Oppenheim continued working with the greats and continues to find talent wherever she goes. She is a regular at New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, seen at the most important shows, photographing the most creative and noteworthy leads and key artists.

MODERN met with Oppenheim at the 2014 Fall/Winter Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and got an update on her site. Learn more from the creator herself in this short video.
