Haute

& Healthy

Students at Artists for Humanity created a very special dress fabricated in Vitamin Water labels and bottles to celebrate Boston Fashion Week. Vitamin Water is a sponsor of The Tent at Boston Fashion Week. This masterpiece is on display in a Mandarin Oriental Boston window which can be found in the Newbury Arcade of The Shops at the Prudential Center.

 


   

Meet Bethany Van Delft. Bethany has graced many of Boston's fashion runways as a model extraordinaire over the years. Everyone knows she's funny, but what some who know her through the fashion industry might not know is that she is a comedienne on the verge of greatness, or at least a sitcom deal. She'll be sharing her model musings all through Boston Fashion Week.

 

 

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way Down The Runway

 

One time in Milan I went on a casting for the Giorgio Armani fall collection. I’d only walked 6 steps before one of the stylists surmised I was not right for the job. “You arr no ellll-e-gaaant,” she said in a dreamy Italian accent, “You arr lika baby gee-raaaaffa,” which apparently was fine for Emporio Armani collection. I went on to the final casting, where upon seeing Nadja Auerman, Beverly Peele and other ‘real models’ sitting on the floor, smoking cigarettes, exchanging books, I promptly decided I did not belong there. Before I could arriveder-me, I was whisked away to a dressing room, put into a body stocking, blazer, strappy 4 inch sandals, and shoved onto a runway, located right in front of the man Giorgio Armani. “Ello Behh-tany, pleasa walk for me.” I didn’t do that. I did instead herky jerk down to the end, turn, shrug my blazer off, which instantly jammed up on my clenched fists yanking the sleeves inside out, slippity slide over to Giorgio, throw my arms in the air, sleeve-covered fists and all and yell “Taaaa Daaaa!!” “Ohh, Behh-tany!” he belly laughed, “see you next year!”  My agency wasa no appy, but I know one baby gee-raaaaffa who is still pleased as Punch.

“Having one central location will really create an opportunity

 to make this a premiere event for the city,’’ Menino said.

“This is going to be a truly professional event,

and our talent in Boston deserves that.’’
