Diane & Co. from ‘Jersey Couture’ gives refund and more to grieving prom date

Diane & Co. from ‘Jersey Couture’ gives refund and more to grieving prom date
BY BOB HOLT

The Freehold Township dress shop featured in Oxygen network’s "Jersey Couture" has refunded the money for a prom dress to the father of the Jackson girl whose prom date was killed.

Diane & Co. suffered a severe backlash last week for not refunding the cost of a $1,200 dress to Jacqueline Genovese, girlfriend and prom date of 17-year-old James Volpe, who died in a car accident May 13. The store has a no refund policy, but NewJerseyNewsroom.com reported they refunded the price of a dress for Genovese in January.

The Asbury Park Press reports that the store stated they had refused to refund the dress to Genovese’s mother because she didn’t buy it, but they refunded Genovese’s father, Keith Genovese, who paid for the dress.
