NY may have been getting all the attention this month, but Jersey City Fashion Week is finally here! It will spotlight some of the most imaginative and talented designers while also celebrating Jersey City’s vibrant social and culture scene. Throughout the week there will be fashion shows, charity functions, cultural events, cocktail parties and networking receptions.
We’re lucky to live in a city which is an ideal host for fashion week. We have eccentric bars, restaurants, pedestrian walkways and beautiful serene parks if you want to take a breather from the hustle and bustle. You can purchase some tickets here for events such as the JCFW meet and greet at Port-O Lounge where you’ll get to meet models, designers and also receive drink specials. This event is free! On September 22nd you can join the community at Maritime Park where you’ll meet and connect with international and couture designers.
We are really excited to see designers Michi and Noreen Francis hit the stage this year! Michele Walden, is owner designer of Michi and creates knitwear for women. She uses carefully selected yarns that vary from silks to rayon, wool and linen to make it the perfect fit while being creative and stylish. Noreen Francis is a distinguished designer, stylist and humanitarian. She raises money to fight global hunger and runs her own business out of “The Store” and donates a portion of her proceeds to MissonProject which is a Jersey City-based organization which Francis founded in 2011 to help orphans and disregarded children all over the world.
