Boston Fashion continued on last week with Bond hosting two top shows; The New England Revolutions annul show and StyleWeek sensation Jonathan Joseph Peters.
Boston Fashion week was jam packed with multiple venues, catwalk callers, style swaps and trunk shows but Bond in the Langham Hotel featured some of the region’s top athletes and a Project Runway legend in the making.
Last Wednesday The Langham Hotel welcomed the New England Revolution for their annual show yet this time with a twist. The soccer superstars invited their wives, girlfriends and fiancés to join them on the runway in the London based looks by Boden.
The host for the evening was the magnificent NECN Meteorologist Nelly Carreno. Hair and makeup was complementary from Dellaria Salons and proceeds from the event were donated to The Ellie Fund.
The night was filled with plenty of personality and anything but that serious strut. The players and ladies showed smiles, winks for the press pit and a boisterous athletic pep. The crowd really turned up the volume when the U.S. National Team and recent World Cup star Jermaine Jones hit the runway. Jones is a fresh face in New England with barley being signed a month with the Revolution.
The night was a hit and how could it not be with the flattering designs and the sexy cliché of professional athletes and the lovely ladies on their arm.
The following evening, Thursday was a fashion week first. The innovative and masterful StyleWeek stud Jonathan Joseph Peters made his Boston debut. However, the Providence based Peters is no stranger to the style scene. He is known for his time spent on Project Runway, closer for the exceptional StyleWeek fashion presentation and has a store with fellow designers called Nude in Providence.
Peters brought the wow factor to fashion goers with the successful risk he took at StyleWeek in August. This time around he showed his latest collection “Noir”. It was a dark and seductive collection of evening, special occasion, and day wear.
Peters show had a collaborative transition with the pieces having similar textiles and patterns that moved from a chic day design to mysterious sexy cocktail attire.
The show was flawless and Peters once again exuded technique and professionalism. Although he made the trip from Providence he did it make it alone! StyleWeek is an extraordinary event all its own but they are also a family off the runway.
The fashion forward thinking crew traveled together to show support. In attendance were colleagues from Nude; Jess Abernathy, Amy Stetkiewicz also StyleWeek designer Nick Pini alongside creator Rosana Ortiz and Amanda Doumato owner of accessories retail Flaunt Boutique.
StyleWeek 2015 will take place in February and Socially Scene will be on site to see what is next from this unforgettable collaboration of the industry’s best in the North East.
