Heather Zwain on The Bergen County Bible

Heather Zwain joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss the newest lifestyle website to hit the Garden State market, The Bergen County Bible.

For the past 13 years, Zwain has built her career as a magazine fashion editor, gaining expertise, knowledge, experience and connections. She styled and interviewed everyone from Odell Beckham Jr. and Derek Jeter to Mary J. Blige. “I was the go-to person in Bergen County for so long,” she explains. “This was a natural transition for me.”

Now, Zwain has moved from the print world to the digital world by founding The Bergen County Bible. “There’s just so many more opportunities,” she says.

 “I wanted it to be the place to go for all things Bergen County and beyond,” Zwain says. The site has restaurant suggestions, fashion tips and so much more. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the professionals and personalities who make this a fabulous place to live, shop, work and dine.

Introducing The Bergen County Bible by Heather Zwain

Home is love. Home is family, friends, memories and experiences. It’s a feeling. A moment or several moments. A lifestyle. And for Heather Zwain, home has always been Bergen County.

HEATHERZWAIN.COM was created out of a desire to provide the community with access, insider tips and truthful and relatable information that they have never had before.

“You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the professionals and personalities who make this a fabulous place to live, shop, work and dine,” says Creator and Editor-in-Chief Heather Zwain, who spent the last 13 years as the Fashion Editor, Stylist and on-camera personality for Bergen County. “You’ll be in-the-know about everything, trust me.”

Zwain, 34, built her career from scratch at a local magazine and created her brand as the go-to fashion guru for Bergen. She has the expertise, knowledge, experience and connections to provide the community with the best resource guide to celebrate the county, and a little beyond from time to time.

When asked why she chose now to launch a new website, she emphatically replied, “I was unexpectedly laid off from my job and chose to turn a negative into a positive. Starting my own website feels like the natural next step in this new chapter of my life. Bergen County is filled with exciting, sophisticated and fun-loving people who want to stay current on fashion and beauty trends, remain fit and know about the people and places who make this area so wonderful to live in. They want one, convenient source to find out where to eat, play, shop and enjoy their lives. HEATHERZWAIN.COM is that source.”

As part of her purpose, Zwain strives to help others feel confident and stylish. She is a fashion veteran and celebrity interviewer who has talked style and dressed some of the biggest names in the industry including: Tim Gunn, Terron Schaefer, Stacy London, Catherine Malandrino, Stuart Weitzman, Mary J. Blige, Odell Beckham Jr., Lil Kim, Rachel Roy, Ken Downing, Yansi Fugel, Marc Bouwer, David Meister, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, Ivanka Trump, Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy, Eli Manning, Carl Banks, Derek Jeter, Curtis Grandson, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, CC and Amber Sabathia, Justin Tuck, Jeff Feagles, Tate Donovan, Daphne Oz, Johnny Damon, Emme, Kristine Johnson, Chris Wragge, Martha MacCallum, Tracy Wolfson, Lori Stokes, Geraldo and Erica Rivera, Bethenny Frankel, Giuliana Rancic, Elizabeth Gilbert, the RHONJ cast, the Jerseylicious cast, Jay Huguley, Malaak Compton-Rock, Ilya Kovalchuk, Leslie Greene, Guy Bedarida, and many more.

Zwain has enlisted the help of former colleagues and friends, whom she believes provide a wealth of knowledge of style and beauty, fitness and health, dining and entertaining and the culture and history of the county. “I want my site to really help other brands and professionals grow their personal businesses, while all coming together for one great purpose –– to celebrate the community we live in and love,” says Zwain. “There are so many amazing people in Bergen, it’s time to join forces and celebrate them.”
