Here we are again another week closer to Boston Fashion Week! The designers are sewing the final stich and the events are beginning to unfold.
Socially Scene was on site this past Saturday for The Design Museum “Five” Gala at the W Hotel to celebrate five years. It was a creative black tie event to say the least. The guests were draped in ball room attire that was “redesigned” to suite the affair.
It was amazing to see what The Design Museum has done for the city of Boston and fun is an understatement for the dynamics of the evening. The live band, signature cocktails, silent and live auction, it was just one fabulous evening. Be sure to tune back in as Socially Scene will be making a personal trip to The Design Museum with an onsite review!
