October at The Garment District

With Halloween getting closer and closer we sent folks out in costumes from our rental department (downstairs, at Boston Costume). Check it out!

Cleopatra and Nefertiti. Back from the past, hanging out in Cambridge!

Ringmaster and Saloon Girl, did you see them hula hooping in Harvard Square on Saturday?

And last but not least, Mounty and Beaver! Hilarious!

Eddie Kent arrived at The Garment District in the 80’s restyling 60’s and 70’s fashions. Over the last 20 years Eddie has expanded his creative abilities to other areas, such as window displays, merchandising, and now modeling! The Garment District sells Eddie’s collection of pop culture magnets, underwear, and ornaments for the holidays. Divas, such as Lady Gaga, Divine, and Cher are often the subject of Eddie’s work.
