Fashion & Beauty Week kicked off their wonderful mixer yesterday at Vibe in Riverdale, NJ. Attendees came out to support a great cause Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) and enjoy a bit of fashion from designers like Naven, Les Compains, Melissa Odabash and Sue Wong. Jack Panico President and CEO of Panico Salon and Spa, hosted the event and shared that last year they helped raise over $47,000 towards the DRI. This year Fashion & Beauty Week will be held in March and he has plans for it to be bigger than ever. To make a donation to support the cause you can donate here.
While at the event we chatted with Kayleigh Gorman, who was diagnosed with Diabetes last year, she talks about how she continues to pursue her dreams and how Fashion & Beauty Week helped her through her difficult time. Katie Deleasa from the hit show on E! Married to Jonas talks about her connection to diabetes, what popular fall trends she loves and if a season 2 is in the works. Plus we get the run down on some stylish fashionista’s and their trends and model Erica Williams gives advice to those that want to rip the runway. Check out the video for all the details.
