Boston Fashion Week
2016 goes #BLUE4BILL
in memory of the
legendary fashion photographer
challenging local fashion industry professionals and the community at
large to find a way to go #BLUE4BILL during Boston Fashion Week. You
can get as creative as you like but something as simple as wearing blue
to an event and posting a picture on social media with the hashtag
#BLUE4BILL would be a lovely gesture honoring this very special man
who contributed so much to the fashion industry.
