Cambridge Joins in for Boston Fashion Week

Boston’s Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow but Cambridge has been and is hosting some pre-Boston Fashion Week Events that include the official opening of a local independent studio and store here in Cambridge.

The studio is  named La Esquina, Spanish for the Corner.  It carries both women’s and children’s clothing and if you visit today you will be able to save 10% from noon to 10pm tonight.  The official opening “party” takes place tonight from 6-10pm and also includes a block of time for for art activities for children as well as food.  This will be from 6-8pm and is a great idea for those of us that have kids and want to check out their selection for kids too.

Earlier this week MIT hosted a Give Me Shelter lecture on how clothing can be used as a “Second Skin for Extreme Environments”.  The series is an interesting take on Fashion from the functional perspective as well as the visual.  Though you may have missed this particular lecture in the “Give Me Shelter” series there is another one scheduled for Monday October 14th.

The Hotel Marlowe will be hosting the Fashion and Beauty “SuperShoot” workshop for aspiring fashion photographers.  The workshop will be taking place on Sunday and has been recently discounted to $99, you can find more information at Lance McBrayer’s website www.hipwithlancemcbrayer.com.

The founder of Boston Fashion Week, Jay Calderin, has indicated a desire to add more events outside of the official week.  The website includes a schedule of the events for the week but also before and after.  Of note for Cambridge on the post Boston Fashion Week side besides the continuation of MIT’s Give Me Shelter series is a Fall Fashion Show at the CambridgeSide Galleria on October 14th.  The highlight will be the Fashion Show PassPort to Style produced by none other than TESstylist’s Lydia Santangelo but also promotions and deals from mall retailers and event sponsors.  More details can be found on the mall website www.shopcambridgeside.com .

Hope to see you at one of these Cambridge Fashion Events!
