The Revere Hotel Boston Common made headlines with its adventurous grand opening fashion show. Models repelled down a vertical catwalk that scaled the 24-story building. Thankfully, all of the models are seasoned rock climbers from Boston Rock Gym. Locked into sturdy harnesses, this was a walk in the park for them.

Debuting their uniforms, which were designed by students at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, the Revere Hotel Boston Common fashion show also featured select pieces from British designer label Ted Baker London's Spring and Summer collection.

The uniforms showcased will be worn by Revere Hotel Boston Common's doormen, valet, front desk staff and cocktail servers. The lucky audience sipped champagne and watched the spectacle through binoculars provided by the hotel. This is one way to grab people's attention.
