First Ever New Jersey Fashion Week | October 11-12th 2010

New Jersey held its first ever fashion week at the majestic Pleasantdale Chateau in West orange new jersey

Though this wasn’t a full week of fashion this two-day packed event was certainly the place to be on Mon Oct 11th  and Tues Oct 12th. The venue was  really was perfect for the event and allowed attendee to experience some new jersey hospitality. NJFW was founded by Donnella Tolery and Jack Panico. NJFW I think really provided some good press for the Garden State. A lot of our local media came out to cover the event , tons of photographers and bloggers. The local media that was there was great because not only did you have say the county paper but the dailys for a particular city. There were also a few magazines there that simply catered to NJ. I sure ceased the opportunity to network with these writers. Hyper local news can work very well for a client or brand that only serves a specific are or wants to target a specific are. The Jersey reality stars were also present from Jerseylicious and the Real Housewives as well as other VH1 reality stars who happen to be Jersey breed Jonathan from the “Spin Crowd” and Jaqueline Madden from “You’re Cut Off.” Jerseylicious was also filming and I’m guessing that NJFW will be airing during the season finale.

For two days fashion dominated New Jersey. We were treated to cocktails, open bar, beauty bar, and of course ample chances to network with some pretty fabulous people.  I think that by having a fashion week in New Jersey we are helping to give our state its own identity.  I think that as the years go on  NJFW will continue to grow and be something that people look forward too.

Day one was devoted to Hair trends, we had a Oribe event kick off, and an emerging designer sneak peek.  [ designers were Ari~ Nico and Adrian ~ Sandra Baquero]
