The Old Forest trail in Overton Park was the setting for this year's Flyer fall fashion shoot. Volunteer models were once again recruited from Peabody rooftop parties. They spent the day with us, taking time off from work or school, weathering the unseasonable heat in stylish togs of wool, denim, and silk from some of our favorite local retailers. The location lent itself to storytelling and woodland fairy-tale fantasies.
