Each year, Fall is always an exciting time of the year - this is the time for fashion shows all over the world.
For the first time New Jersey also had its own fashion week. On October 11-12th, 2010 West Orange, NJ was crowded by all fashionistas who came to attend the New Jersey Fashion Week, which was held at the prestigious Pleasantdale Chateau - the most exclusive venue for social events in the Garden State. Showcasing the next generation of award-winning fashion designers from New Jersey, New York, California and Italy - the aim of this event was to "provide emerging fashion talent an opportunity to present their Spring / Summer 2011 Collections on a global scale to the industry and consumers" - says Donnella Tilery, NJFW Founder. This fashion event also allowed influential leading international beauty experts demonstrate the upcoming season's hair styles & cosmetic artistry techniques in a runway presentation. Held in the month of October - known as a breast cancer month - NJFW is supporting the charity of Susan G. Komen-for the Cure - North Jersey.
First day of NJFW was mainly "all about the hair" showing hair trends for 2011. More than 60 different hair looks were presented on runway as a result of great work of talented hair stylists & makeup artists from Panico Salon & Spa - owned by Jack Panico - also one of the founder of NJFW.
