Boston Fashion Week celebrates its 25th anniversary this week as a platform for upcoming designers — and building a strong identity for Boston in an artistic and commercial realm dominated by New York.
On Sunday, the main event opened at the Mandarin Oriental showcasing a digital fashion photo installation, a fashion show and an introduction to virtual reality by executive director and founder Jay Calderin.
“It’s the sense of community,” said Calderin. “Every day we are making a living, trying to express ourselves through our work, and this is the one time a year we have the opportunity to not only show off our work, but to support one another.”
