POST-GAZETtE, OCTOBER 31, 2014 Page 9 , by ,slngela Cornacchio Fashionably Late closer and showstopper Designer David Josef wowed Boston fashion goers with his red carpet designs. (Photo by Angela Cornacchio) Socially Scene Reviewed ... The grand finale of shows for Boston Fashion Week was the Fashionably Late presentation at the Liberty Hotel. The fabulous, fierce and fashion-forward event was hosted by Boston debonair Denise Hajjar and designer showcase styled by Kathy Benharris with a portion of bar proceeds from the event donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The Liberty Hotel is always an amazing place to hold a fashion event with the jail house structure creating sky high runways. The main floor space is cosmic yet on this evening there was barely room to move as the creme de la cr~me of the Boston fashion scene were on site for the show in an- ticipation of the iconic closer for the night. The first designs to hit the runway were Joelle Jean- Fontaine with the KRI~YOL collection that had a playful pattern with classy appeal and was perfectly coordi- nated for the fashion forward lady seen in the streets of the Back Bay. Second to hit center stage was award winning apparel designer Julie Kontos. Her collection featured dark soft tones layered with lace and metallic. Each piece was paired with luxurious handcrafted accessories from Race & Grant. The additions to the outfits were over the top with the punk edge that brought a wow factor from the creative construction. These ladies are sure to start a buying war between designers. The grand finale was none other than the sophisticated red carpet Designer David dosef who made his first Boston Fashion Week ap- pearance since 2003. He started off his show with a pink number that is meant for a night spent amongst Manhattan's finest style. He transitioned a classic black cocktail dress with flair, perfect for that high- end social affair. Following Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Mis~rables tells an enthral- ling epic story of broken dreams, unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and re- demption. The musical ex- amines the metamorphosis of ex-prisoner Jean Valjean who agrees to care for a dy- ing factory worker's young daughter, all the while being hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert. The Tony Award-winning masterpiece has thrilled audiences around the world and will now be presented in a unique production. This timeless classic will include songs like; Do You Hear the People Sing,? Stars, Bring Him Home, Master of the House, One More Day, At the End of the Day, I Dreamed a Dream and On My Own. This presentation has a worldly reputation for being one of the best on stage and has now hit the North Shore Music Theatre, located at 62 Dunham Road in Beverly and can be reached at 978- 232-7200.
