Donnella Tilery (www.shopdonnella.com) and Mavi Lounge owner, Jack Tabibian are pleased to introduce and host the first inaugural event - New Jersey Fashion Week in October 2010.
New Jersey Fashion Week was founded in March 2010 by Donnella Tilery, a fashion / retail entrepreneur and New Jersey resident.
“There is fashion in New Jersey and a lot of emerging talent” comments, Donnella.
“What better way to celebrate this through a fashionable event at the hottest location in the gardent state?”
The main fashion week “hub” will be the gorgeously decadent hot spot Mavi Lounge (www.mavilounge.com) located in Fairfield, New Jersey –similar to what Bryant Park is to NYC Fashion Week.
A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization to support the fight against cancer.
Designers will compete in a “project runway” competition for cash & prizes.
