The owner of Pearl Street Consignment and Custom Clothes, at Pearl and Monmouth streets, described the featured outfits as “very Goth chick, effortlessly girly.”
Seated at the edge of Maggie McKenna’s chalk-drawn runway, Charlotte Hand of Rumson said the event had the feel of an event “that you have to be super-exclusive to get into.”

A Red Bank clothing designer and boutique owner hopes to add to the allure of the popular Broadwalk outdoor dining experiment downtown this weekend.
The aim of the event is to “showcase that retail is very much alive in our amazing little city,” said Angela Courtney, owner of the Sweetest Sin lingerie shop on White Street.
Lensman Peter Lindner was there for redbankgreen to get a fix on the runway action, which saw 46 models strutting the latest in men’s and women’s styling, including footwear from White Street’s Rare Breed.
The event, held in the courtyard of the Dublin House on Monmouth Street, featured several dozen amateur models high school students, a bank teller, a toy store employee, a radiology lab worker and others in dazzling spring and summer outfits.
redbankgreen was there, from start to finish, making full use of its all-access pass to document the show both on the runway and backstage.
