The local Boston fashion and retail industry beefed up some of its more high-profile happenings. In September, Newbury Street was roped off for the first time in 15 years for Fashion’s Night Out
, which included everything from a cocktail party with a disco theme at Tiffany & Company to an alfresco concert. In previous years, the event had a less official presence in the city, with small, scattered trunk shows and in-store events. Later that month, Boston Fashion Week
also got a more cohesive makeover, with a centralized, 3,000-square-foot tent (pictured) from PBD Events
spanning a courtyard near the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
