The Top 8 Moments From College Fashion Week New York

After wrapping up a successful show in Boston, the Her Campus team packed up and headed to New York City for the next stop on the College Fashion Week 2014 tour! Hundreds came out to attend the bareMinerals Primping Party and Her Campus fashion show this past weekend, and both were beyond fabulous! Between the incredible boohoo fashions and the impressive TRESemmé hairstyles, the fabulous #browfection brow touch-ups from European Wax Center and makeup by bareMinerals (plus so much more!), the weekend was full of glamour. Of all of the memorable things that went down, we’ve picked our top eight to share with you!

1. The grand entrance

On the evening of the big CFW New York show, everyone showed up in style and the line snaked down the block! We gave away goodie bags filled will all kinds of fashion and beauty swag that would make any collegiette swoon.

2. The hot hairstyling

As the official hair care sponsor of College Fashion Week, the TRESemmé team worked its magic to make the models’ and attendees’ hair look super stylish! Here, famed stylist Tyler Laswell preps a model backstage for the show by creating the Imperial Two-Strand Twisted Half-Up. He’s responsible for some of the hottest looks rocking the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, too, so we were thrilled to be in the presence of hairstyling greatness. All hail the hair genius!

How amazing did this look turn out?! It’s the perfect combination of simple and chic, plus it doesn’t require any crazy hairstyling skills on your part. This look is so practical that any collegiette can do it before class in the morning. Follow these steps (straight from the TRESemmé experts themselves) to recreate the fab do!

  1. Prep hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse and rough dry. For added texture, use a one-inch curling iron to create a soft wave.
  2. Create a deep side part and separate the bigger section of hair into two equal portions. Begin by twisting the section of hair at the hairline by crossing the strand that is closest to the hairline over the other section.
  3. After each twist, add a small amount of hair to each section and repeat. Continue until the twist is three-fourths of the way around the head and secure with an elastic.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 with the opposite side and use an elastic to tie the two ponytails together.
  5. Complete look with a mist of TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray for a runway-ready look that‘s easy to achieve before class!

3. The #browfection
Among the other can’t-miss perks from the night was the European Wax Center station, where collegiettes could got their brows touched up by the experts! We’re all about bold brows, and these ladies were rocking total #browfection.
4. The glamorous make-unders
Of course, with great brows come great responsibility (and a heck of a lot of eyes on you), so we spiced up our allover looks with amazing make-unders and foundation shade-matching from bareMinerals! There’s nothing better than enjoying some high-quality primping and pampering, and that’s why this Hollywood treatment is high on our list of fave moments from the event. Attendees even received full-sized, shade-matched foundation and a high-quality brush; score!
5. The fab photo shoots
Once everyone had his or her hair, brows and makeup spruced up and camera-ready, they hopped into the Bosco GIF photo booth courtesy of Premium Outlets – yes, an actual GIF photo booth! Check out one of the fab photo shoots:
6. The fall fashion
This cozy-looking chunky knit sweater from the boohoo Woodlander look is the answer to your chilly weather woes, and we nearly swooned when we saw it coming down the runway! The distressed denim totally completes the fall-inspired outfit, which we can easily picture a collegiette wearing on campus and in class. Plus, it’s actually affordable, and you can score 25 percent off your boohoo order with the code ‘boohooCFW25’!

7. The faux fur

Fashionistas, take note, because this is the way to rock faux fur! The contrast between the creamy plush vest and the floral dress are on point, and dare we say, so Olivia Palermo! From the U.K.’s best-kept secret to one of the fastest-growing international e-tailers, boohoo.com has quickly evolved into a global fashion leader of its generation, and this vest is cold, hard proof (or, you know, plushy, soft proof).

8. The spot-on styling

This ensemble from the boohoo Imperial scene is so chic! The sweater-around-the-waist look is one of our fave ’90s throwbacks, and we’re thrilled to wear it ourselves. The loose blouse tucked into the asymmetrical skirt is a great pairing for an internship or job interview!
