Preview next year’s trends at an exciting evening of art and creativity celebrating Boston Fashion Week, featuring looks from NYC-based VERGE, champions of queer style.

As part of an analysis and celebration of the ways in which art is utilized as visual activism to create visibility and positive sociopolitical change for LGBTQI communities, VERGE will present a Boston Fashion Week queer style event executive produced by dapperQ in collaboration with bklyn boihood, Posture Magazine, and DYDH Productions. The four entities formed the VERGE partnership to sponsor a total of eight independent ​designers whose work is systemically rooted in notions of gender nonconformity and its intersections with race, ethnicity, and culture. Featured collections were selectively chosen to embody the enigma of a vastly​ diverse aesthetic that is simultaneously chaotic and orderly. The viewer is invited to explore the question “What is queer style?”

This 21+ event does sell out; advance tickets are recommended for both members and nonmembers. The museum will not be open to visitors outside of the First Fridays event. Admission is free for members and $15 for nonmembers. Discounts, promotions and admission vouchers do not apply toward First Fridays admission.
