It was Saturday, October 10, around 6 p.m., and if you were a passerby, you would have thought the insanely long line of girls outside of Santo's Party House were getting ready to turn up. You wouldn't have been wrong though, because we definitely did get turnt - Her Campus style. This was Her Campus' Annual College Fashion Week (CFW): NYC, where fashionistas, writers, aspiring media mavens, and most importantly, powerful females from Her Campus chapters, get together for the most amazing GNO. As a member of Her Campus Adelphi, I was looking forward to the night since last year's CFW.
Her Campus is the No. 1 online global community for college women. There are over 290+ chapters on campuses worldwide run by a team of writers, whose articles range from current news and lifestyle to campus cuties and celebrities.
New York City, Boston, Washington D.C. and Atlanta are the lucky ones when Her Campus College Fashion Week comes to town. Not only did they bring us fashion inspo, but also some of their best beauty sponsors! Eyebrow game was too strong thanks to the European Wax Center's Browfection Bar, and nails were looking on point at the Jamberry DIY Nail Art Bar. Of course, we can't forget the free swag filled with goodies from Milani, European Wax Center, Simon, Skinny Pop, Luna, StyleWatch, Bumble and bumble., Jamberry, Glamsquad and more!
Once it was showtime, the opening acts took center stage. Columbia University's male a cappella group SHARP serenaded us in our seats *faints* and upcoming R&B songstress Teenear got us pumped with her amazing vocals and dance moves. Talk about awesome pre-show entertainment!
Finally, what we had all been waiting for: The models came out and strutted the runway. Her Campus is all about empowering girls to embrace who they are and have confidence as they run the world. The girls they chose as models were actually real college students of all ethnicities, heights, and sizes. The models, including my gals, Shani (Fellow Cambio Campus Ambassador), Cynthia and Sam (Her Campus Adelphi members) OWNED the catwalk in this season's hottest trends from Forever21 and SOREL.
The looks ranged from chic and comfy class wear to hot and hip party looks. The best part was that not only could I see myself wearing the pieces being modeled, but I could afford them without hurting my wallet. What more could you ask for in a fashion show? Thank you for the great weekend, Her Campus!
