Project Runway's original champion Jay McCarroll will hit the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing on Friday.  If you're fiend for fashion, this is your chance to meet the man who conquered the inaugural season of one of reality TV's fiercest talent competitions.

McCarroll, a native of Philly who still lives there today, is to be formally introduced as Hamilton Mall's New Celebrity Fashion Ambassador. Jay will be announcing  "Battle of the Runways--A Summer Spectacular Fashion Event", as well as introducing his latest line of summer wear and accessories from the Jay McCarroll Collection, being carried exclusively at Hamilton Mall's Never Too Spoiled, the acclaimed earthy-friendly trendy fashion retailer.



**PHOTO OP!**  YOU can meet Jay also during a fan Meet & Greet just after tomorrow's scheduled press conference!

In 2009, McCarroll released the feature documentary ELEVEN MINUTES, chronicling his year-long journey preparing his first independent runway show for New York's Fashion Week in Bryant Park and the subsequent selling of his line to stores. The result is an in-depth, painfully raw and humorous exploration of the creative process and the constant balancing of commerce with art, fame with talent and reality TV with actual reality.
