Boston Fashion Week 2010

Boston Fashion Week 2010: Sept 24 – Oct. 1
Boston Fashion Week is such an anticipated week for Bostonians. Although I’ve only lived here for a year, it stuck out like a sore thumb last fall! I wanted to attend some of the events but couldn’t because of my wedding. So this year, it’s a MUST for me to get the scope up close and personal!
Contrary to NYC Fashion Week, it’s not about the designers and new collections that we have heard all before. You can’t just walk up and go to a show in NYC. It’s VERY restricted. But Boston Fashion Week is about new, innovative, edgy locals PLUS established designers who have just the talent to be better than main stream designers. Their events are catered to all ages and all price ranges (some are complimentary admission) for everyone! And that’s what I love about it!
It appears to be a great way to network and interact with the public to showcase your passion. It welcomes you to express yourself and participate in they’re runway shows as well as learn important steps to make your goals marketable.
I will be checking out some of these events and I can’t wait to tell you about it! Check out the schedule for this year’s events!
