When & Where
Boston Fashion Week
Boston Fashion Week was founded in 1995. The force behind the week has been dedicated to creating opportunities that increase the viability and visibility of the local industry. The series of fashion related events throughout Greater Boston and beyond serves as a platform for both established industry professionals and aspiring newcomers to showcase their work as well as network with peers and the public. This annual celebration of Boston style featuring a great wealth of local talent, is unique in that it is
designed to engage the community directly, at the grassroots level -- cultivating fashion as an integral part of the Boston lifestyle.
Accessibility and diversity in programming allow the public to engage the week on many levels; experiencing a show, taking in an exhibit, participating in an educational program or joining in the festivities at a party. The week also contributes to a sense of civic pride about what the region has to offer and how it continues to evolve. You’re invited to become an active participant in the local fashion community by supporting local style makers during Boston Fashion Week and throughout the rest of the year.
