Mark Twain once said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”  Twain has graced us with many wisdoms, including the importance of fashion on who we are in society. This week (09/25/09 to 10/02/09) is Boston Fashion Week, where local Boston designers and fashionistas debut their designs. This year, our very own Anne O’Loughlin was asked to speak on the panel of the Boston Fashion Week Style Summit. 

Join us for a one-of-a-kind discussion: Learn how certain local leaders shifted gears, and have mapped out a place for themselves on some of the new frontiers in fashion such as Green, Vintage, and Fair Trade Fashion. Moderated by Jay Calderin, the Founder & Executive Director of Boston Fashion Week.

Panelists Include:

Anne O’Loughlin, Autonomie Project– Fair Trade

Meredith Byam, Poor Little Rich Girl – Re-purposed Fashion

Shana Yansen, Jute & Jackfruit – The Environment
