Boy, do I have some exciting news to share with you today! Me and my good friend Tanya (Leopard Lace and Cheesecake) are going to be covering the 7th Annual Emerging Trends Runway Show during Boston Fashion Week!
Unless you live under a rock, you were subjected to the wonder of New York Fashion Week on the news and entertainments shows and media last month. Many people may not know this, but Bostonians have Fashion Week too! Sure, it's not as "big" as NYFW or as filled with celebs but it's a wonderful opportunity for established and up and coming local and international designers to showcase their designs. Boston Fashion Week takes place October 5-11 and you can see the show schedule HERE.
The Emerging Trends Runway Show is hosted by Synergy Events. Synergy events started in 2006 as a small event planning company but they've quickly grown into planning global events during New York, Boston, and London Fashion Weeks.
The Emerging Trends Runway Show takes place on the last night of BFW, and it's one of the biggest shows of the week.
Ten international designers will be showcased in this year's show. Here is a quick summary of each designer, more information on the designers can be found HERE.
