Although not New York or Paris, Boston definitely has a style all its own. In celebration of this, Boston Fashion Week has teamed with the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District (BID) to create a series of fashion-themed happenings all over the city through October 3. Enjoy displays like the Wearable Art exhibit at Copley Place, an outdoor installation of fashion photography by local shutterbug Tracy Aiguier at Downtown Crossing (pictured) and a tribute to Somerville-born fashion illustrator George Stavrinos (1948–1990) at the School of Fashion Design on Newbury Street. There are also plenty of runway shows—including the Denise Hajjar Fall/Winter 2015 fashion show at Royale on September 29 at 6 p.m.—and special lectures on the fashion industry.
