Single and Fabulous

Posted by Mary Jo Almeida-Shore On May - 1 - 2009

tiffany-rosen-and-erin-newbergSingle and Fabulous was founded by gorgeous, young,  and, you guessed it, single, entrepreneur Tiffany Rosen.  The organization was conceptualized one evening in January while Rosen was on Facebook, and noticed several of her  young friends’ statuses going from “in a relationship” to “engaged”, and realized she was not on that boat, causing her to update her status to: “Am I the only single individual in Miami, who’s ok with it?”. Rosen soon noticed an endless stream of comments as a result of her post, the catalyst for the establishment of a company for Miami singles like herself.

Rosen created a group on Facebook called “Single and Fabulous”, which was  joined by hundreds. Comprised of Miami-ans: from notables to professionals, Tiffany planned her first launch event at the penthouse of the chic Hotel Victor.  Unsure of what or how many people to expect, Tiffany was pleasantly surprised when over 200 beautiful, like-minded individuals showed up,  looking to meet new people! In the process of planning this event, Tiffany met single, Miami socialite Erin Newberg, who joined Single and Fabulous as a partner. Both young women brought different talents to the table- Tiffany brought the marketing know-how and Erin the PR expertise. After the Hotel Victor event, an overwhelming amount of positive emails poured in, requesting membership information. Rosen and Newberg decided to proceed on a per-event basis for future events, allowing them to throw their second successful event at Miami hotspot, Louis on Valentines Day. Once again, over 200 of Miami’s finest attended the event sponsored by Life Style condoms, Stoli, MyEventBooth, Miami.com and PLUM TV.

Rosen and Newberg have since thrown other Single and  Fabulous events: Rock the Boat, on a yacht in May and a Halloween bash in October.

The organization is thriving, with creative and successful events planned in the near future.  Both girls continue to be single, and all the more fabulous  for it!
