It’s Sunday night in heels for Montclair fashionistas and even one fierce fashionisto, hun-tee.
Montclair Fashion Night is definitely a significant addition to a growing local calendar (MFF & 4th of July come to mind). Hosted by the Montclair Center Business Improvement District at the stately Wellmont Theater, it puts a spotlight on its downtown sponsors.
By the ambiance of light blue and red lights over the historic theater’s ornate surfaces and sophisticated dance music, patrons mingled, browsed very local vendors and tasted foods from Fresco and Xocolatz during the cocktail hour.
The D.J. switched up to jazz as Israel Cronk of Bangz Salon & Spa took the mic to open the show. Made-up by the Bangz staff and outfitted by Montclair Center’s apparel stores, a diverse group of homegrown models took to the runway in the casual and the elegant. Featured stores and collections included Sofistafunk, Atelier, One Savvy Design Consignment Boutique, South Moon Under and Heratij.
