West Roxbury's Sidewalk Fashion Show

Local fashion boutiques in West Roxbury, just southwest of Boston, held a sidewalk fashion show that provided guests with a great look at the favorite clothes from the boutiques. A raffle also accompanied the show, giving winners great dining prizes as well as some hot styles.


On a crisp November night, the corner of Baker and Spring streets in West Roxbury was transformed into a catwalk. Local clothing boutiques Fabutique and Top if Off hosted their first annual “Fashion Mob,” where models strutted down a red carpet on the sidewalk in the stores' best designs, in front of a crowd of local residents, as well as a few curious motorists.

The event was an innovative way for the small businesses to raise money for the Roslindale Food Pantry, while also displaying their favorite designs. Throughout the night, raffle tickets were sold for $5 each, with all of the proceeds going to the pantry. Read More
