Happy Friday, babes!
So for today’s post, the title pretty much says it all….. tomorrow I am going to NYC’ venue 404 to see Her Campus’ College Fashion Week. I’m super excited for the opportunity to attend the event as a VIP and wanted to fill you in on CFW, the sponsors, and more!
Of course, attending a fashion show has me super stoked. Who wouldn’t be?! But Her Campus makes sure that the event is empowering and fun for collegiettes, in order to celebrate their bodies and fashion. Self love totally rocks and Her Campus makes sure to celebrate that at CFW, which showcases talent of upcoming fashion entrepreneurs. The shows’ four collections – Rush, Festival, Study Chic, and Girls Night Out – feature the talents of My Social Canvas, Foray, Ali & Ariel, Frill Clothing, and Bow & Drape. Plus, all of the runway models are real local college girls of all different backgrounds, shapes, and size. HOW AMAZING?!
Want to join me at the event? To see if there are any tickets available for tomorrow’s NYC show (Oct. 1st from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.), head HERE. Not in the NYC area? There are shows in L.A. on Oct. 22 and Chicago on Oct. 15!
All good fashion weeks need good sponsors, right? As if Her Campus didn’t completely nail the event with these upcoming designers (I’m already going through their sites to see what I can expect to
see purchase at CFW), they knocked it out of the park with their sponsors! Let’s talk about them, shall we?
So, we know that I’ve been trying to be healthier, which is why I am beyond ecstatic that FitBit and their Flex 2 bands are sponsoring the event. The Flex 2 is 30% smaller than previously released models and the removable tracker can fit into bangles and pendants. Finally, a way to keep my FitBit fashionable?! Yes, please! Nothing ruins a good picture (like my pics with my BFFs at a Toby Keith concert) than the huge black band! Plus, you can easily style the bangle with a Bertha Watch, another CFW sponsor. You can choose from their Signature, Crystal, Classic, and Charmed collections to perfectly style your arm candy. LOVE IT!!
But wait… it keeps getting better. Fashion icons Rebecca Minkoff and Vince Camuto are also sponsoring the event and I am droooooling at the thought of it! If you haven’t checked out their websites yet and added a ton of items to your shopping cart, you need to get on it! Rebecca Minkoff has a wide range of apparel, handbags, footwear, jewelry, accessories (including tech), and athleisure, while Vince Camuto designs tylish, versatile office and off-duty shoes, handbags and apparel for the fashion-focused modern woman. Fingers are crossed that I get a swag bag that could potentially have one of their products in it. A girl can dream, right?
Drybar, the original blowout bar, Perfumania, America’s largest perfume retailer, Haines, and Kind Bars round of the list of CFW sponsors.
Sounds like heaven right? I’m so excited! And the best part of all? I get to experience it my mom!!!
