Fall is in the air, and Boston Fashion Week is upon us; bigger, bolder, and better than ever. This year, BFW gets a real runway in addition to a 3,000 sq ft tent, proving that Boston is growing as a fashion capitol. The Tent At Boston Fashion Week, is an upscale collaboration between Boston Fashion Week, Boston Magazine, Mandarin Oriental Boston, Party By Design, and The Shops at the Prudential Center.
Tonight’s Opening Night Reception kicks off the exclusive, invite-only BFW event series at The Tent At Boston Fashion Week.
