Dries
 


 
For the first time fashion designer Dries Van Noten allows a filmmaker to accompany him in his creative process and rich home life. For an entire year Reiner Holzemer documented the precise steps that Dries takes to conceive of four collections, the rich fabrics, embroidery and prints exclusive to his designs. As well as the emblematic fashion shows that bring his collections to the world and have become cult“must sees’ at the Parisian Fashion week.

This film offers an insight into the life, mind and creative heart of a Master Fashion Designer who, for more than 25 years, has remained independent in a landscape of fashion consolidation and globalization.

Creating Couture Embellishment
          By Ellen W. Miller

 
The finishing touches applied to a garment can take it from the realms of the ordinary to the heights of luxury. Creating Couture Embellishment offers a step-by-step guide to manipulating fabric and making and applying a rich variety of embellishments.

Chapters cover fabric-manipulation techniques of pleating, quilting, tucking, ruffling, shirring, and smocking, as well as the fabrication and application of feathers, beading, embroidery, flowers, decorative ribbons and bows, bias bindings and piping, fringe, braids, and passementerie. The heirloom quality created by the insertion or application of lace is also explored.

Featuring a visual index of every embellishment in the book that is designed to offer inspiration as well as showcasing the myriad of choice, Creating Couture Embellishment provides a comprehensive sourcebook of ideas for the student, professional, and home sewer alike.

The Official Opening Night of BFW17

Presented by Platform Downtown
& Downtown Boston BID
 

 
Every year since 1995 the force behind Boston Fashion Week has found ways to seek out and celebrate new fashion talent. This year is no exception!

The plan was to find
17 new faces that should be on every fashionable Bostonian’s radar. We found 18! Hence the revised name of the official opening night event, 17+. You'll only find fifteen in the image above, but that too will be remedied once the remaining globetrotting designers return to Boston.

The evening will start with the screening of a documentary short featuring designer interviews, behind the scenes glimpses, and the glamorous editorial images photographed by Tracy Aiguier, styled by Terri Mahn and shot on locations in the Downtown Crossing area. Once introduced to The 17+, guests will be able to mix and mingle with the designers and models wearing selections from their collections. We can’t think of a better way to start the week!

An Evening with Isaac Mizrahi
Presented by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston


 
In a unique conversation with Michelle Finamore, Penny Vinik Curator of Fashion Arts, hear how famed fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi focuses on the necessity of finding a niche, trusting your instincts, and doing only what you love. Few designers have been as bold, in their work and in their lives, as award-winning Isaac Mizrahi.


Born and bred in New York, the fashion capital of the western world, Mizrahi has designed for some of the world’s most influential women, including Audrey Hepburn, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and Michelle Obama. A firm believer in doing only what truly inspires him, Mizrahi has expanded his oeuvre into theater, designing costumes and sets for the Metropolitan Opera; a trailblazing high-low collaboration with Target; and television work judging young talent on Project Runway All Stars.

KID KOUTURE
Presented by Dependable Cleaners
Platform Downtown/Downtown Boston BID
and the School of Fashion Design, Boston





Jay Calderin, the Founder and Executive Director of Boston Fashion Week, heard about Boston's Bridge to Excellence - an enrichment program at the Tobin K-8 School - and was intrigued that they had included fashion as one of the subjects of study. After meeting with the students he was so impressed with how they were exploring the subject that he made several visits over the summer to work with them.

The artwork they generated will be used to create original fabrics and serve as inspiration for the direction of a capsule collection of garments created by students at the School of Fashion Design on Newbury Street. The resulting art and fashion designs will be featured at a public reception.

The dresses will also be featured in the windows of Dependable Cleaner's Newbury Street locations and the School of Fashion Design's gallery later this fall.

Reception details TBA.

Fashion and the Fab Four
Presented by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
 

 
The most enduring image of the Beatles is probably that of the Fab Four clad in matching Mod suits and haircuts in the mid-1960s. But the Beatles sampled several different looks on their road to stardom, from leather-jacketed rockers in the late 1950s to sporting ethno-hippie styles in the late 1960s. For a brief time they even owned the Apple Boutique, a clothing store in London. Explore the many ways that fashion defined the looks and lives of the Beatles with Lauren Whitley, senior curator, Textile and Fashion Arts.

Rei Kawakubo
and the Japanese Invasion of Fashion

Presented by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
 

 
When Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo first showed in Paris in 1981, her collection—all black with tattered, deconstructed designs—caused a sensation. The press described it as “Hiroshima chic.” Kawakubo and her countrymen Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto continue to shock the fashion world and have had a huge influence on contemporary fashion designers. Explore the revolution in fashion brought about by Rei Kawakubo and her fellow Japanese designers with Pam Parmal, chair and Logie Curator of Textile and Fashion Arts

Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style


 

Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style is the first exhibition to explore the art, image and personal style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s understated and carefully designed garments, many never before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs and her paintings, illuminating O’Keeffe’s unified modernist aesthetic and distinctive self-styling. For more than 70 years, O’Keeffe shaped her public persona, defied labels and carved out a truly progressive, independent life in order to create her art. Her aesthetic legacy — compact masses, organic silhouettes, minimal ornamentation, and restrained color palettes — continues to capture the popular imagination and inspire leading designers and tastemakers of our day.

■ about boston fashion week


Boston Fashion Week was founded as a civic initiative 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. This approach has also begun to attract the interest of national and international designers who are looking to connect authentically with a Boston audience.

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. The public is invited to become active participants in the local fashion community by supporting local style makers during Boston Fashion Week and throughout the rest of the year.

how to participate in BFW17


Any individual or organization that is interested and able to put together a show or special event is invited to do so. There is no fee to be listed on the official schedule. All events that take place during Boston Fashion Week are independently produced by the designers and event planners involved in those particular projects. Those designers/event planners are solely responsible for all aspects of their events including production, promotion, press access and model selection.

In addition to the many independent events taking place throughout the Metro-Boston area and beyond, Boston Fashion Week produces a series of industry and public events/programs designed to tie the week together and increase the visibility of the week as a whole in the press and public eye.

Please note that our online calendar will continue to serve as an umbrella for events scheduled both before and after the official lineup between October 1-7, 2017. We welcome any fashion related event listings taking place during the Boston fashion season (September thru December 2017).
