#year25



 
from the founder


This is a special year!

It marks #year25 of Boston Fashion Week.

It's hard to believe that so many years have passed and that we’ve arrived at such a meaningful milestone.

We have been spending the last few months revisiting many of the memorable moments that have been part of a quarter of a century of service.

Everything about this trip down memory lane comes back to a quote that has been a guiding principle for our community since the beginning.

            "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
             committed citizens can change the world.
             Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

            — Margaret Mead

We never had a doubt that this is what it's about.
  
That’s why we’d like to extend an invitation to the thoughtful, committed citizens, both past and present, that move fashion forward in our city to help us celebrate our region's legacy, define what Boston fashion means today, and
help write the next chapter.
 
You are the professionals, the businesses, the schools, the many institutions that explore fashion through the arts, design, science and technology, the connoisseurs, and the consumers of fashion.
           
            Be a part of the story.

how to participate in BFW19

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
September 22-28, 2019. We welcome any fashion related event listings taking place during the Boston fashion season (September thru December 2019).

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 parties.
 
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.
