Who said Fashion Week looks are unattainable? Last night’s “nude. Local Talent Exposed” show gave Boston fashionistas the chance to immediately purchase the designer goods that they saw, as the venue at BOND Restaurant and Lounge was transformed into a pop-up boutique with handmade items straight from the runway.

Designers who presented at the show included Jonathan Joseph Peters (who competed on Project Runway), Jess Abernethy, Yellow Clover by Sarah Prost, Amy Stetkiewicz, Kent Stetson, and Susan Troy. Peters and Abernethy brought the group together — they are based out of Rhode Island’s historic Arcade—after they met at StyleWeek Providence.

The designers opted for nude makeup to complement their pieces. With six very different styles, the designers decided to work within a color story going from soft and feminine to neutral, then transitioning into bold and quirky, and finally finishing with a “sleek city gal on the go,” as described by Peters.
