Summer weather may be dragging its feet, but the Boston fashion scene was heating up at Open Runway 2017! Smack in the center of Boston’s Downtown Crossing, the fashion show took place on the newly iconic stone steps. Tourists, passersby, and business men and women alike were able to experience a taste of what new and emerging Boston designers have to say. With rows of designer/model duos ascending the stairs, it was a perfect picture of the best of what Boston has to offer. It was a colorful fusion of silhouette and style, with the designers and models to match. The mix of talent was diverse and dynamic, as were the clothes exhibited. It’s the mixed bag of the Boston fashion scene; one I am proud to be a part of!
Something that is unique to Boston is the inclusive, supportive, and collaborative nature of the local industry. As a blogger, and now a designer, I am always moved by the local industry mentality; a success for one is a success for all of us. Congrats to all the amazing designers that showed their work at Open Runway. Let’s keep designing and continue to develop Boston as the amazing fashion hub it is!
Love in Fashion,
