Boston Caribbean Fashion Week is back again October 13-16
Boston Caribbean Fashion Week is a multi-day, diverse series of festive fashion events founded and produced by Althea Blackford. In mid-October, stylists, models, and spectators will come together to celebrate, educate, and pay homage to Caribbean design and culture, with representation from Barbados, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and more. Featured designers will include Sharisse Scott-Rawlins, owner of bySharisse, Ayanna O’Brien, owner of ICANDI WEAR, Prince Citi, owner of Viezoe Lifestyle, and Ariel Koonce Fortes, owner of Fashion Fun Pop.
In 2013, Althea created an annual event that celebrates Caribbean heritage while providing a platform for designers to showcase their collections and connect with other fashion professionals. 2021 marks the 8th annual Boston Caribbean Fashion Week, which includes a virtual kickoff event, a style workshop, a style panel discussion, and a runway fashion show. Events can be attended in person, or people can register for online tickets and attend virtually.
In-person activities will be held at The Salon at Studio Allston Hotel (1234 Soldiers Field Rd, Boston, MA 02135) and at Final Touch with Class Boutique (17 Warren St, Boston, MA 02119)
