SPLASHION!

 

J. J. Sybylla Smith is the curator

at The Griffin Museum of Photography by Digital Silver Imaging Gallery. She assembled an exciting collection of images featuring Water and Fashion.

Getting ready for a new art opening is definitely a family affair. We love Eliza's very apropos accessory. Be sure to visit the new satellite exhibition space at 4 Clarendon Street in Boston's South End!

  

Eric, Eliza, Sybylla, and Simon.

 


KUDOS!

In spite of the weather Thursday's shows in The Tent at Boston Fashion Week wowed full houses. Avni Trivedi definitely embraced the feminine, while Jeff Lahens elevated the level of testosterone in the room with menswear from Uniform, Bobby from Boston, Drinkwaters and his own collection.

Beyond Boston Chic

 

 

We agree with blogger Martini Severin who captured the undeniable style of these three lovely ladies at the very start of Boston Fashion Week. Accessory maven Elisha Daniels, Lauren Antos of Lily & Migs and Susanne Hatje, General Manager of the Mandarin Oriental, Boston. beyondbostonchic.com

 


 

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.

 

 

Waiting For Tina – Part 3

 

At the job, I walked the department store floors alone, smiling and presenting furiously at anyone who made eye contact, until a very tardy O rushed over and joined me. "I'm so sorry I'm late! I had to work at Neiman’s this morning, I just got out." "That's a great one!" I smiled, recalling my party days and the implausible excuses I concocted. "It’s believable, in fact possible! I never would have thought of that." "I did work this morning," she said. "Is that what the kids are calling afterhours these days, 'work'?" I chuckled. She blinked and shrugged at me, pulled her iPhone out of her boobs, and started texting, effortlessly I might add. "I'm in a fight with my friend, the one from last night? She texts me and tells me some creepy guy is hitting on her, calling her stupid, to come rescue her. When I did come to get her out of there, she was all friendly with him, acting like she didn't know what I was talking about! She made me look like an idiot!" I blacked out from laughter, and when I came to we deciphered the evening; Tina was just a random name O used in an otherwise brilliant plan to rescue her friend, had she been talking to a real creep, and not just the enthusiastic tech loving husband of a co-worker. They were not meth heads. She did work that morning. The iPhone worked fine. I got the best story never written. I’d like to take this moment to thank cigarettes, iPhone, and Tina for it. And for never booking that job again.

From the Founder

The Next Generation


Every once in a while I meet someone who reminds me of why I do the work that I do, or more importantly for who.

 

I started my life in fashion at the age of fourteen in New York City. I attended the High School of Fashion Industries, which to this day I credit with providing me with a solid foundation in all things fashion, not to mention a very strong work ethic.

 

When I met Crockett Henderson and found out he was moving to the Big Apple with his mother to attend my alma mater, I wanted to share any information, resources or opportunities that could be helpful to this young man who clearly had a vision for his future so early in life. I invited him to join me in the front row of the first three shows that took place in The Tent at Boston Fashion Week and write about it. I wanted to share what he sent me with the Boston Fashion Week audience so that we can all say that we were there at the beginning of a career that is sure to influence the next generation of fashion talent.

At last night's shows in The Tent at Boston Fashion Week I ran into an old friend and his niece, a teen fashionista with a blog of her own. She saw two shows and promised to write about her experience. To visit Jenny's Open Closet CLICK HERE

 

 

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.’’
