PHOTOS: Matters Magazine Puts the Focus on Women in Business

This fall, Matters Magazine is celebrating women in the Maplewood-South Orange business community. All stories in the fall edition of the magazine feature women and girls.

In addition, the issue contains a special section devoted to local business women — entrepreneurs in fields ranging from architecture and beauty to speech pathology, publishing and financial services.

Jamie Meier of Live Love Lens Photography cap­tured man of the women visually (some photos were submitted) while Alma Victor of Staynd Color provided hospital­ity and salon services. Erin Williams of Erin’s Faces and Lauren Chapman of Beautycounter used their artistry in makeup applica­tion while Kimaya Salaskar Thakrar of Kimaya Kama consulted on wardrobe and accessories.

Besides having fun getting to know one another, Matters publisher and editor-in-chief Ellen Donker writes that the women “delighted in the cama­raderie that seems to come so naturally to women, the desire to collaborate, and the encouragement for one another’s chosen path.”

Village Green, which partnered with Matters on the promotion, will be publishing individual profiles of the women in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, we present all the photos here.
