Celebrating it’s 16th year starting tonight, Boston Fashion Week kicks off this evening with a bang to start this seven day celebration of Boston style & fashion. Although Boston has yet to join the ranks of the mega fashion elite cities such as New York, Milan, and Paris, it’s still a great way to celebrate the emerging presence of the artistic styles & trends that our dear city of Boston holds.
Boston Fashion Week 2009 will consist of a wide variety of events ranging from fashion shows, art exhibits, parties, movie screenings, and much much more. If you take a look at bostonfashionweek.com it is filled with numerous and oh so stylish events throughout downtown Boston. So what should you check out you ask? Here are some Boston Fashion Week events that might be worth your while.
