If you walked down Lafayette street around 6pm last Saturday, you probably saw line of fashionable girls outside Santos Party House. That is because girls from all over came to strut their stuff and look at some amazing fashions at College Fashion Week.
NYC is one of the four cities that host the event along with Washington D.C, Boston, and Atlanta. Along with great fashion, the event had amazing sponsors! European Wax Center showed girls how to rock a strong brow and Jamberry helped us decorate our nails for the fall. The event even gave out swag bags filled with goodies from: Milani, European Wax Center, Simon, Skinny Pop, Luna, StyleWatch, and many more!
The show started with two musical acts. Columbia University’s all male a capella group called Columbia SHARP serenaded a room full of girls and added some much needed eye candy to the party! Next up was up and coming teen R&B sensation Teenear. The 18 year old showed off her pipes and dance moves before the main event: the fashion show.
The amazing fashion show was sponsored by Forever 21 and SOREL boots. It had five main looks for class, weekend, and date night. The event is one of a kind because it allows college girls of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities the chance to walk down a catwalk and model. “I really loved meeting other students from different colleges,” said model and Hofstra junior Katie Spoleti. “It was comforting to know that even though we started out as strangers, by the end of the night we were laughing, hugging, and cheering each other on.”
The best part was that models were relatable and the looks were easy to obtain and see your-self in. “I think the concept of College Fashion Week is amazing. I think it is a beautiful idea to showcase hardworking, classy co-eds that are raw and real.”
