Hollywood Glamour:

Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen
Presented by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

“Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen” presents designer gowns and exquisite jewelry from the 1930s and ‘40s—the most glamorous years of Hollywood film. The exhibition focuses on the iconic style of sultry starlets of the period, including Gloria Swanson, Anna May Wong, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, and Joan Crawford.

Hollywood style in this era was a blend of on- and off-screen fashion and accessories, including dramatic costumes created for the screen by famous designers such as Adrian, Travis Banton, and Chanel and dazzling jewelry from makers of the era like Trabert & Hoeffer-Mauboussin and Paul Flato.

Along with eye-catching gowns once worn by famous figures and the sparkling jewels that contributed to their allure from the MFA and private collections, photography by Edward Steichen along with period photographs, film stills, and film clips capture the style of the silver screen era. Enjoy a glimpse of Hollywood in the Golden Age of glamour.

OSRAM DEBUT™:

Bringing the dressing room to life

Daniela Corte

 

 
Daniela Corte recently launched her Fall/Winter 2014 collection. The collection lives up to what you’d expect from this leading Boston designer. It is smart, sexy and very stylish. But let's focus on that first word. SMART. It describes Corte as well as her clothes. She is always looking for the most innovative ways to create and sell fashion. Shoppers who visit her Newbury Street boutique will be treated to a very special experience -- in the dressing room.

This season OSRAM DEBUT™ technology has transformed Corte's dressing room into a virtual reality space. Multi-screen video backdrops and lighting that simulate real-life environments allow the customer to get a better sense of how they will look wearing their Daniela Corte originals in different settings and at different times of day. Real-life settings are filmed, their light levels are measured, and then reproduced in the dressing room.

For those who find themselves doing more and more of their shopping online, this is one more reason to come back to brick and mortar shops. Shopping isn't merely a transaction, it's an experience.

Science of Style:

Designing Fashion with Tech Elements
Presented by Gihan Amarasiriwardena, Kit Hickey and Aman Advani

Boston is known as the hub of technology, but hasn't always been considered the epicenter of the fashion world. With science and technology running through this city's DNA, we ask: what can technology offer fashion? What can we do to make clothes that fit our lifestyle?

In this open house, attendees will see firsthand how technology and fashion have merged in the creation of local clothing brand, Ministry of Supply. Having met at MIT, co-founders Gihan Amarasiriwardena, Kit Hickey and Aman Advani will walk you through their ideation and creation. Attendees will have the opportunity to interactively test products firsthand, touch materials and prototypes, and jump into the world of Performance Professional.

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.
