--By Jules Newmark

Times are tough... can we hear it enough? Just when I don't think I can handle yet another person taking me down with negative recession talk, I think of glamour and beauty and remember it's just a high heel away or a chic clutch to being happy and rich in theory once again. Victorya Hong, Project Runway alum, must be feeling the same way because she stuck to her guns to show at Bryant Park (or at least across the street) and get her line out in the public eye... just like the good old days of... last year.

Designers are pairing up, showing together and working in teams to make their clothes a reality to buyers, editors and socialites. Hong's dreams of putting together runway magic were made true by Got2b hair company... a guardian angel of sorts. The two got together an put on a pre-fashion show show at Arena Event Space near Bryant Park where both introduced their new lines. Got2b's newest, Guardian Angel, is the co-star of the show this year with products such as a flat iron balm, blow dry lotion and curl iron spray.

As well as promoting fashion, Got2b donated money to the Global Angels Foundation which is a global charity that provides to children in need. Talk about a savior! Looks like this hair products brand is out to save the world... and the society of fashion of course.
