Holiday Elegance Fashion Show benefits Bereavement Center

Holiday Elegance Fashion Show – An elegant event for the fashion conscious

November 1, 2016 – Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice and Krave Café and Catering will present the third annual “Holiday Elegance” fashion show on November 10, from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Conservatory, located at the New Jersey State Fairgrounds in Augusta, NJ.

The red carpet, fashion show will showcase elegant holiday fashions for both men and women that will take you through the holidays…from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve…from family functions to formal functions. Attendees will be inspired by fashions for men from Onore and Felicia’s Boutique for women. Both designers are located in Sparta, NJ.

“For over 30 years our passion has been for fine men’s clothing. In today’s world, when most people order everything online, it’s difficult to find a full service tailor to customize your entire shopping experience. That is what we do, that is what we love,” said Richard Cintron, co-owner of Onore –  Fine Tailored Elegance.

“Our clients can visit us at our stores in New Jersey and New York or we can visit them for a full at-home or office wardrobe consultation. We take over 30 different measurements of your body to make sure that whatever we deliver to you has been crafted and tailored with care. We focus on the most minuscule detail,” said Cintron.

Phyllis Flanagan, owner of Felicia’s Boutique said, “Our philosopy is giving people good clothing, great value and the latest in fashion.” Flanagan, who also owns Flowers in the Attic, opened the clothing store, located in Sparta’s Upper Lake Plaza, in 2013. Felicia’s Boutique carries many familiar name brand lines and features jewelry, accessories, shoes and handbags.

There will be 22 “celebrity” models on the runway at the event. They include: Mary Bezak, Mira Cocozziello, Dr. Jon Connolly, Tracey deWaal, Joe Dipaolo, Christina Furgeson, Jim Furgeson, Yanina M. Hupka, Dr. Cynthia Jones, Ginnie Littell, Dr. Alexandra Miller, Bob Nicholson, Dr. Chris Robertozzi, Louis Ruggiero, Tom Ryan, Beth Sylvester, Lou Sylvester, Dr. Ed Tirpack, Laura Tirpack, Robin Tomlinson and Chris Wolverton.

The event will feature cuisine from Krave Café and Catering, wine tasting and a silent auction. All proceeds from the event will benefit the capital campaign for the Joseph T. Quinlan Bereavement Center. The Joseph T. Quinlan Bereavement Center provides grief support and counseling for hospice families and the community free of charge. The staff works to bring comfort and understanding to help families through difficult times. Individual counseling and ongoing support groups are offered.
