Come peruse the innovative gowns from the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s 2012 Project Debussy student fashion competition and meet up-and-coming designers while enjoying French wine and cheese! Executive Director of Boston Fashion Week Jay Calderin will speak about the special focus on student designers during the Spring season.
This event is presented with the generous support of Boston Fashion Week, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Fashion Consultant Kathy Benharris.
About Project Debussy:
