Let us start by saying how grateful we are for all of the people who have reached out to us in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The Boca Mag family has been so gracious and patient as we get our power and lives back together. It’s times like these where we truly appreciate how close-knit the Boca Raton community is.
We’re happy to report that we’re back! After a brief hiatus, we’re back to bring you our New York Fashion Week recap.
