OXYGEN MEDIA DESIGNS SECOND SEASON FOR “JERSEY COUTURE”
New Jersey Based Fashion Series Returns in an All-New Format
NEW YORK – September 15, 2011 – Oxygen Media announces a second season for fashion series “Jersey Couture” with an exciting revamp which will highlight the glamour of fashion, Jersey style. In its freshman season, “Jersey Couture” introduced viewers to New Jersey’s first family of fashion, the Scalis, who run Diane & Company, a shop where dresses of all kinds—from prom dresses to mother-of-the bride gowns, leopard print to gold sequins—come to life. The series returns in an all-new format with half-hour episodes following Diane & Company shoppers as they select a unique signature dress for a special event. The customers will be guided in their difficult decisions by sisters Kimberley and Christina and mom Diane Scali, delivering their signature advice accessorized with Garden State style.
As viewers learned in the first season of “Jersey Couture,” for the Scalis mixing family with business can have its challenges. With a classic Italian-American spirit coupled with a “no BS” attitude, the family has made its dress store the premiere glamour stop in South New Jersey. In this ultimate dress-up series, running the family business means having a flair for fashion, accessories, and even the right undergarments.
Every girl or woman has an image of what she wants to achieve when she dresses for a special event, whether it’s a sweet 16 fantasy, a gala charity ball, her high school prom or her daughter’s wedding. When it comes to what to wear to an elegant affair, no one gets the job done quite like the ladies at Diane & Company.
The second season of “Jersey Couture” will premiere on Oxygen in early 2012 and is produced by Half Yard Productions, with Abby Greensfelder and Sean Gallagher as executive producers
