Boston fashion continued on last week with Bond hosting two top shows; The New England Revolutions annual show and StyleWeek sensation Jonathan Joseph Peters. Boston Fashion Week was jam packed with multiple venues, catwalk callers, style swaps and trunk shows but Bond in the Langham Hotel featured some of the region's top athletes and a Project Runway legend in the making. On Wednesday, October 8% The Langham Hotel wel- comed the New England Revolution for their annual show, this time with a twist. The soccer superstars in- vited their wives, girlfriends and fiancees to join them on the runway in the London- based looks by Boden. NECN Meteorologist Nelly Carreno was the host of the evening. Hair and makeup was complementary from Dellaria Salons and proceeds from the event were donated to The Ellie Fund. The night was filled with plenty of personality. The players and ladies showed smiles, winks for the press pit and a boisterous athletic pep. The crowd really turned up the volume when the U.S. National Team and recent World Cup star Jermaine Jones hit the runway. Jones is a fresh face in New England with barely being signed a month with the Revolution. The night was a hit with flattering designs and the sexy cliche of professional athletes and the lovely ladies on their arm. The following evening, Thursday, October 9 th was a Fashion Week first. The innovative and masterful StyleWeek stud Jonathan Joseph Peters made his Bos- ton debut. The Providence- based Peters is no stranger to the style scene, he is known for his time spent on Project Runway, closer for the exceptional StyleWeek fashion presentation and has a store with fellow designers called Nude in Providence. Peters brought the wow factor to fashion goers with the successful risk he took at StyleWeek in August. This time around he showed his latest collection "Noir." It is a dark and seductive col- lection of evening, special occasion and day wear. Peters' show had a collabo- rative transition with the f k_ Real Estate Matto Gallo Appraisals Sales & Rentals 376 North Street Boston, MA 02113 (617) 523-2100 Fax (617) 523-3530 pieces having similar tex- tries and patterns that move from a chic day design to a mysterious sexy  cocktail attire. The show was flawless and Peters once again ex- uded technique and profes- sionalism.

Jim (617) 263-7766 Named after a Victorian children's game, the band delivers a unique smoky cabaret, neo-soul voice that can time-travel from the woods of Medieval France to New Orleans in the 1930s. From 8:30 pm to 12:00 am, the band will give a theatri- cal performance at The Beat's second annual Hal- loween Bash complete with food, libations, costumes and decked out decor. What Time Is It Mr. Fox? is made up of several talents whom, through cinematic violin, upright bass, artful drums, jazz trumpet, Hammond organ and two fe- male vocalists, bring a soul- ful performance to the stage. The band draws inspiration from Johnny Cash and Joni Mitchell classics to Irish folk tunes and Appalachian mur- der ballads, in the tradition of songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone and Jacques Brel. The Edge has praised the group, saying "triumph of mood and style, an unforgettable musical, theatrical and emotional ex- perience." The band is rooted in its songs -- poetic, inventive, emotionally naked medita- tions on love, religion, sexu- ality and identity. Their newest CD, Little Bit of Blue, was recently released with two sold-out parties in Bos- ton and New York. The band's original song "Cold Rain" was recently covered by New Orleans Soul Queen, Irma Thomas, on her Grammy-nominated CD Sim- ply Grand, where it earned high praise in Rolling Stone, USA Today and The Village Voice.
