College Fashion Week: New York City

Hey hi friends! 

Hope everyone's week is absolutely fabulous! This week is a little crazy for me, with midterms starting up and things kicking into swing on campus (like next week, please check and make sure I'm doing things other than attending campus events and work, because I might forget what sleep is). However,  this weekend, I got to do something completely out of the ordinary, and attend College Fashion Week here in NYC! I was lucky enough to attend as a Social Media correspondent, covering the entire event on Her Campus' Snapchat story for the night! It was an amazing experience to even attend the event, and because I was attending and covering the event for Her Campus, I got to sit in VIP/Press seating and see everything from the ideal perspective!

If CFW is coming to your city (Chicago and LA are the next two cities that CFW will come to this year) in the future, I definitely recommend going! 

As I was covering the show for Her Campus, I got a chance to go behind the scenes in many aspects- I got there early and got to see the venue get set up for the show, and I was able to go backstage and see the clothing and models beforehand, and see all of the vendors before anyone got there! The sponsors for the event did an absolutely amazing job- some of them were Fitbit, Vince Camuto, Bertha Watches, Rebecca Minkoff, Drybar, KIND bars, Maidenform, and Style Watch! One of the coolest parts, not going to lie, was getting a VIP swag filled with some amazing gifts from the sponsors, the biggest being a Fitbit Flex 2! My Fitbit recently stopped working and I'm looking forward to trying out their newest invention! Some other items from the swag bag that I'm excited to use are the Maidenform tights and thigh highs that were included, and my personal favorite, a bag of Skinnypop!

Here's a peek into one of the coolest nights so far of this semester!

I think the best parts of the night were getting to attend with a close friend of mine, Sarah, and getting to see two of my favorite brands, Ali & Ariel (who I've worked with before here and here), and Bow & Drape (keep your eyes peeled for our collab soon!), hit the runway! It was an amazing night of #girlpower and creativity and fashion all over the place.

Also shout out to Emily from Fashion Daydream! I met her and her roomies from Pace University here in the city and they are the sweetest! Emily was covering the event on Her Campus' Instagram story and you can see her take on the night here!

Have a fab day, loves!
