Through 25 years of experience and hands-on research, Angelo David has developed a variety of cutting-edge products and techniques that allow his clients to have and maintain the healthy hair they want at every stage of life. A second-generation thinning-hair specialist, he learned how to work with hair pieces from his father, renowned wig maker Carmine Pisacreta. In 2000, he introduced Angelo David Couture Hair Extensions and Additions™, the world’s finest customized hair system.

Most recently, Angelo created Hair Detox, a lifestyle supplement that addresses the specific needs of men and women who are experiencing thinning hair and early signs of hair loss. It is based on the latest science and research on the nutrients and herbs that address various contributors to thinning hair and hair loss, including stress, hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies. Hair Detox gently detoxifies the body, helps minimize nutritional deficiencies, addresses hormonal imbalances and supports healthy hair growth from within.

Angelo is also the creator of the Flex Brush—an all-purpose tool that safely detangles hair, massages the scalp and promotes health and hair growth. The brush’s versatility combined with its flex technology—as recently featured in Good Housekeeping’s Best Beauty Awards 2019 ‘Top-Tested Stylers’—make it the most forgiving hairbrush on the market. The Flex Brush, designed for both wet and dry hair, bends to follow the contours of your head, massaging your scalp and stimulating the production of natural oils. The brush has vents that allow heat to pass through it, so blow drying won’t damage the brush.

For more than a decade, Angelo has been a media fixture. In creating his signature looks, Angelo has worked with many celebrities, including Christie Brinkley, Aviva Drescher, Sonja Morgan, Carrie Preston, Tamara Tunie, Alexa Ray Joel, Coco Rocha, Shoshanna Lonstein, Danielle Savre and Kelly Rutherford. Angelo’s passions include his clients, his talented team and his family, who continually inspire him to create new hair care products and hair pieces that help men and women look and feel their very best.

Party Pics – Royal Fables Rocks Chandigarh

The exposition presents art, fashion, textiles and art objects made in leading palace studios across the nation. Besides hand picked collections by leading designers and labels that keep the rich Indian hand made tradition alive.

“This is our milestone year and we are trying to take the regal legacy to smaller cities and towns which are inhabited by luxury seekers and heritage lovers. Royal Fables is envisaged as that one platform where we showcase the aura of Princely India as recreated by young scions of royal families,“ says Anshu Khanna, Founder, Royal Fables.

Royal Fables tied up with Plumtin, a couture label based out of Chandigarh to host the preview on 7th December 2018 at their store. Royal Collectionsby the blue-blooded scions of Princely India were presented along with heritage jewelry by Kanjimull & Sons by Gaurav Khanna and handcrafted ensemble by Samarjit Gurm, Plumtin. H.H. Maharani Radhika Raje Gaekwad of Baroda and Nawab Kazim Ali Khan of Rampur graced the high tea.

“ The bond between Kanjimull and Princely India dates back to 1870 when my great grandfather Kanjimull Khanna, started designing personal jewelry for the Royal family of Patiala. Other states of Punjab followed. Slowly our name spread right up to Great Britain and we were designing for the nobles of Britain.”

That set the tone for what is now Kanjimull and sons – a name synonymous with fine jewelry. “We at Kanjimull and Sons use the finest quality of gemstones and Diamonds and dare to experiment with rare color combinations to create fine jewels with interesting designs. I am excited to present our collection at the upcoming Royal Fables at the Taj Chandigarh,” says Gaurav Khanna

The exposition opened with a formal launch on December 8 by Shri. Vijayender Pal Singh Badnore, Punjab Governor. The exposition closed with a talk on the handcraft legacy of Princely India, chaired by Rani Vinita Singh Patiala and moderated by Anshu Khanna, and the evening ended to the sounds of live music by Prabhtoj Singh and a regal fashion walk featuring the visiting royal dignitaries who dressed up in their own creations, many posing as muse to other royal designers.

Champions crowned at first WASTED event
Chef Works and Kitchens for Good team up for charity, sustainability
SAN DIEGO — Chef Works and Kitchens for Good are thrilled to announce the winners of the first-ever
WASTED: A Celebration of Sustainable Food.
On Oct.14, with the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop, dozens of chefs and mixologists put their creativity
and innovation to the test by competing in three categories using food that would typically be
discarded.
The Nude Dude Food team of Ryan Van Voorhis and Seth Bradley from Chicago – sporting their
signature aprons-only look — won the Savory Event. Thiago Silva of Boston won the Pastry Competition.
And San Diego’s Christian Siglin was named top mixologist. The winners were determined by attendees
voting on their favorite dishes in each category.
“The creativity of all of the chefs and mixologists was so inspiring,” said multi-award winning celebrity
chef Elizabeth Falkner, who served as the emcee for WASTED. “The movement of eliminating food waste
and focusing on sustainability is gaining tremendous momentum and events like this will help bring it to
the forefront.”
All money from the event, including tickets and auction items, supported Kitchens for Good – a non-
profit organization in San Diego that tackles issues of food waste, poverty and hunger. Each chef was
paired with one of KFG’s culinary students – many of whom have had to overcome adversity such as
homelessness, imprisonment or aging out of the foster care system.
“The talent at this event was amazing and we’re honored to have won,” said Bradley and Van Voorhis.
“Food sustainability is an issue we take very seriously and I think with just a little bit of education,
people at home can start making a difference in their own kitchens. We’re thrilled to have helped raise
money for an amazing cause while educating people about sustainability.” The event generated approximately $48,000 for Kitchens for Good.
“We had an idea of what we wanted this event to be and it turned out to be so much more,” said Chuck
Samuelson, founder and board member of Kitchens for Good. “We’re humbled by the outpouring of
support from the community, the chefs and the companies that answered the call to bring awareness to
some important issues in the food industry.”
Chef Works, the global leader in culinary and hospitality apparel, provided personalized chef coats and
aprons for each participant in addition to a $25,000 grant through its charitable arm, Chef Works Cares.
“When we first heard about Kitchens for Good and what they stand for, we knew we needed to be
involved,” said Cynthia McCormick of Chef Works, who oversees the Chef Works Cares program. “Food
sustainability and eliminating waste is not just a corporate responsibility, it’s a corporate obligation. We
take it very seriously and we’re honored to put our name alongside Kitchens for Good.”
About Chef Works Chef Works is the global leader in culinary and hospitality apparel with unrivaled
distribution in more than 70 countries. With an emphasis on fashion and function, Chef Works dresses
the back of the house and waitstaff for a diverse range of customers including: International hotel

About Kitchens for Good Kitchens for Good is a San Diego based non-profit that uses kitchens as a tool
to nourish bodies, empower the marginalized, and create economically vibrant communities. Kitchens
for Good rescues surplus food that might otherwise go to waste, and turns it into nutritious meals for
the hungry, while training men and women previously perceived as unemployable for careers in the
culinary industry. This approach addresses the most immediate need of hunger by feeding the food
lines, but also helps to shorten the line itself by offering pathways out of poverty for individuals
transitioning out of incarceration, homelessness and foster-care. KFG’s ensures its sustainability through
a catering and food service enterprises that offers on the job training opportunities for all students, and
generates 59% of the organizations budget.

Party Pics – A Taste of Coronado

This year’s “Taste of Coronado”, on Wednesday, October 10, was another great success.

This event was organized by the Coronado Junior Women’s Club to benefit local nonprofits, including Monarch School of San Diego, A Walk On Water, and Coronado Junior Woman’s Club.

Coronado’s most popular restaurants served up a plethora of fantastic offerings for attendees to enjoy. This 4 hour experience was the perfect way to spend a fall evening with friends and family.

Visitors could make their way down Orange Avenue, or start at the Ferry Landing, to enjoy all that Coronado offers. When your feet got tired they just hopped on the complimentary trolley to go to the other side of town.
