Last weekend I had the awesome opportunity to attend College Fashion Week as press. Even though I am years out of college, it was so fun getting to experience some new designs by our current millennials, as some of the designers are in big retailers such as Nordstrom! The night started out by visiting some of the amazing sponsors, such as Kind Bars, sweetgreen, Boxed Water and Ice Sparkling Water. We then took our seats and the show began. The hair of all the models, which were all so beautiful styled, were done by Drybar and the fashion was all incredibly adorable. This year’s trends/scenes included RUSH with emerging fashion designers/entrepreneurs Ali & Ariel and Frill Clothing, FESTIVAL with Foray Collective, STUDY CHIC with My Social Canvas and GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT with Bow & Drape. My favorite line from the show was Bow and Drape- their sweatshirts have the cutest sayings and are so adorable. It was definitely awesome to see these young women pursuing their dreams in the fashion industry and must have been so surreal seeing their designs come to life on a runway. Her Campus Media did an amazing job putting on the event, and the space it was held at- 1st Ward Events was gorgeous.
The swag bag I received consisted of so many amazing products:
- Fitbit Flex 2
- Rebecca Minkoff Clutch
- Drybar Triple Sec + a Free Blowout
- RiRi by Rihanna Perfume
- Essie Nail Polish
- European Wax Center Lotions
- Skinny Pop
- StyleWatch Magazine
A candy bar?! Yes, please! So many delicious goodies.
Delicious salads from the new sweetgreen in Chicago... the guac green is to die for!
We were able to keep hydrated thanks to Boxed Water!
I highly recommend attending College Fashion Week if you are able to! There are still tickets left for the LA Show, but if you can't make it to that one- set a reminder for next year! I definitely look forward to going again next year if they come back to Chicago.
