What happens when EDEN BodyWorks takes a party bus filled with New York City beauty and fashion mavens across the state line for Jersey City Fashion Week? Fun and fashion ensues! EDEN BodyWorks extended special invites to a handpicked selection of New York City’s most successful and influential women as a thank you and nod to their many accomplishments.

NYC’s finest crossed the tunnel to attend the highly anticipated Women of Influence fashion show and charity event produced by the Tara Dowdell Group. The invite-only affair, attended by prominent women in business, media, beauty, fashion and politics was hosted at Liberty National Golf Course. Proceeds from the event benefited the York Street Project, an organization committed to eradicating the cycle of poverty among women and children. The event was truly a night to remember as attendees networked and indulged in prime hor d’oeuvres and delectable desserts. A celebration of women from all walks of life, Women of Influence is dedicated to making an impact on those near and far while building the groundwork for tomorrow’s trailblazers.
