Luminously elegant in her strapless white gown, she swans through a flock of origami doves behind full-length windows in the heart of Fair Haven’s quaint business district.
For more than a decade, that mannequin and another on display at Haute Couture Creations have been something of an enigma for passersby: their outfits never seem to change. But thanks to a Facebook thread, only recently have locals collectively realized something even odder: the boutique itself is never open for business.
The Rumson-Fair Haven High School Foundation is all geared up for their new “Apres Ski” event at Fair Haven’s Knights of Columbus on Saturday, January 24, from 7 to 10pm. The casual evening of music, food and fun will include a one-week vacation get-away raffle to raise funds for the High School’s education initiatives. Tickets are $75 per person and will be available at the door. More information at www.rumsonfairhaven.org.
