Confession: I’ve never not wished that I was at fashion week. Ever. Every year I watch all of the coverage, scour all of the magazines for what the designers are showing in their collections, who got snubbed from the first row, which style bloggers rose to the top and landed tickets to a Marc Jacobs show instead of an A-list celebrity, and so the list continues. There’s just one problem, for the past four years I have not had an opportunity to actually be a part of any of the events because (during the school year at least) I live in…Michigan.
Not that I don’t love Ann Arbor. We’ve established ourselves as one of the most fashion forward campuses in America, and make fashion very accessible to students, as we are home to stores like Bivouc, Pitaya, Urban Outfitters, and several other boutiques lining the streets of State Street and South University. Not to mention, we have the most amazing brand ambassadors on campus for brands like Rent the Runway, Ann Taylor, and Victoria’s Secret that host sample sales so that we can have the perfect outfit for any occasion (sorority rush, career fairs, interviews, etc.) shipped right to our doorsteps.
With so much style in Ann Arbor it’s almost crazy to think that we’ve never had a nationally sponsored Fashion’s Night Out or Fashion Week on campus. If you agree with this statement, you’ll love what comes next: Her Campus has decided to bring Fashion Week to Ann Arbor this year and chose us to be a part of College Fashion Week!
On October 6th from 6 PM- 9PM, Her Campus will bring the designers to you, hosting a four part fashion show with clothes from occasions such as running on the treadmill to date night on Main Street.
There will be a DJ, three student group performances, catered appetizers, and a cash bar for 21+. We are also giving away “College Survival Guide” goodie bags to each attendee!
Did I mention that the event is free? Register and secure your ticket: http://www.hercampus.com/cfw/annarbor
We’d love to see you there!
