Meet Bethany Van Delft. Bethany has graced many of Boston's fashion runways as a model extraordinaire over the years. Everyone knows she's funny, but what some who know her through the fashion industry might not know is that she is a comedienne on the verge of greatness, or at least a sitcom deal. She'll be sharing her model musings all through Boston Fashion Week.

 

 

How To Become a Model. not.

 

One time when I was a teenager I heard an announcement on the radio. What it said was Calvin Klein was going to be at Filene’s signing autographs, but what I heard was this was my one big chance to become a Calvin Klein model, and live a life of being photographed by Bruce Weber, lying around topless and tannned between my two more tanned gay luvahs. Using a photo of Josie Borain in Calvin Klein I had on my wall as inspiration, I turned a black bed sheet into a skinny ankle length skirt, topped it off with an extra large v-neck sweater layered over a white t-shirt, white slouchy socks, black patent leather penny loafers, and went downtown to meet my future. I don’t know what I thought was going to happen, but it didn’t. There was no “Wow, I made that skirt Josie had on from a bed sheet too! You should be my next big model!” He smiled and said “Hello”, signed the Calvin Klein ad with Talisa Soto I had ripped from the latest W, and greeted the next person, who clearly did not even make their own imitation CK outfit. I left dejected, with no modeling career, but a fancy new bed sheet skirt that I wore for a whole season. Eventually I was lucky enough to become a model the right way. But I confess, bed sheets have still been known to go missing from my household right around fall collections from time to time.

The Marcel Proust Questionnaire is the perfect tool to get to know a few of Boston's fashion industry professionals. We've taken the liberty of adding a few fashion questions into the mix for fun. We'll hear from different parts of the industry each day this week.

FROM the FOUNDER

 

 

The Boston Fashion Trail kicks off today, right alongside Boston Fashion Week, with the opening of the new Marimekko shop in Crate & Barrel on Boylston Street. Stop by today between 4-6 for a little DIY fun. Celebrate fashion as a lifestyle in all aspects of your life, including home!

 

I love the stories that come with Marimekko products. I was informed that this little girl's dress was called Iloinen Takki, and all the little pockets were meant for love notes.

 

   

Surrur

   

You're invited to a DIY “Surrur” workshop to create your own wearable art, a custom necklace made from the bold color and pattern of Marimekko fabric. Join them for a creative afternoon of home fashion and refreshments. Note: "Surrur" is meant to evoke the sound of a sewing machine.


4-6pm
Crate & Barrel
777 Boylston street, Boston MA

Open to the public.

 

 

See you in the front row!

“Having one central location will really create an opportunity

 to make this a premiere event for the city,’’ Menino said.

“This is going to be a truly professional event,

and our talent in Boston deserves that.’’
