Spring is here! Now's the time to prepare for Fall...

Spring is upon us, so now’s the time to prepare for Fall Fashion Week 2016.  Yeah, we know it...we’re weird!  But such as life, right? It’s the reality of the Fashion World, it’s our reality.  So, if you're fashion-world challenged, or if you're so not used to our own special brand of Fashion Subculture, well, deal. We are the eyes and ears of what’s hot and what will be hot years in advance, so we are weird in good way!

Anyway, if you’re a designer, boutique owner, model, make up artist, blogger, journalist, or multi-talented with two or more or all of above (good for you, btw :)), bring your talent  on over to the other side of the Hudson River right here in Jersey  City, New Jersey.  Jersey City Fashion Week is seeking sponsors and talent whom will complement our fashion brothers and sisters in New York City.  Fashion Week has become a universal language going beyond its Big 4 borders dressing the masses of all shapes, sizes and walks of life.

Thank God for fashion diversity! :) :) :)  We welcome the differences!
