Fashion.. Beauty and Cancer... Kind of an odd pairing, don't ya think?
Not really when you're thinking about the courageous individuals battling this disease and the talented beauty industry professionals who spend countless hours and time striving to make them look and feel fabulous.
Once again I was invited to attend the DePasquale Spa Fashion Fight For Cancer. This event is not only something I look forward to every year, but something that I am also passionate about. The DePasquale Spa and owner Justin DePasquale leads the charge in this dynamic event by raising money to benefit Cancer Care at St. Clare.
On Sunday October 3rd, The Hanover Marriott was transformed into a fashion oasis complete with runway and some of New Jersey's fashion and social elite. The event not only raises money ($50,000 this year alone), but allows the beauty community to join together to fight this killer called cancer. Models strutted the runway with elegance, style and fierce fashion.
Fashion Fight For Cancer was inspired by the life and untimely death of Dr. David DePasquale, a cousin of Justin's. His family are present each year and the love and admiration for David is felt through the entire room. Sadly this year's event was dedicated to the memory of Tatyana Petrushkevich a beloved member of the DePasquale Spa family for over 15 years.
