NJPAC Women's Association

NJPAC Women’s Association Spring Luncheon

#HipNJ spent a lovely afternoon at the NJPAC Women’s Association Annual Luncheon. An annual favorite, the event is a truly unique experience hosting over 500 prominent and high profile women business leaders and philanthropists from the NJ metro area onstage for lunch on-stage at Prudential Hall.

This year’s keynote address was given by Mikki Taylor, editor, speaker, author and proud “Brick City girl!” She shared messages of empowerment and strength from her new book, Editor in Chic: How to Style and Be Your Most Empowered Self with host Michelle Miller of CBS News.

Here are some of the day’s highlights. For more, visit #HipNJ on Instagram and view our story from the day:

Katherine Mahony Designs

International fashionista Katherine Mahony stopped by the #HipNJ studio to speak with our Maria Falzo about her classic, timeless designs!

Katherine got her start when she opened up a styling business catering to women’s wardrobe needs soon after moving to the U.S in 2001 from England. Her business helped women develop everyday looks, perform wardrobe overhauls, and dress for cocktail and black tie events.

Katherine, who has been featured numerous times in British Vogue, explained that her goal is “to give women easy-to-wear, flattering pieces that can still look glamorous over a pair of jeans or leggings.”

Her latest designs are all women’s outerwear made with Tweed, Wool and Cashmere, hand stitched blends, many of which she showcased at New York Fashion Week 2017. Her inspiration comes from living in five countries on four continents, from England, France, Africa, and Asia to the USA.

In addition to her ultra-chic capes, #HipNJ fell in love with the Rosie Posie, a gorgeous dress for spring named after her best friend and inspired by the “ladies who lunch” royalty.
