It’s been five days and I am still on a fashion high from Saturday’s Her Campus Fashion Show. It was a night filled with awesome style, lots of freebies, great music, loads of pictures, and most importantly empowerment. As I mentioned in my previous post, all four of the fashion shows featured creative entrepreneur designers, including My Social Canvas, Foray, Ali & Ariel, Frill Clothing, and Bow & Drape. I loved watching the models strut on the runway, featuring the amazing designs from the four designers. I was so impressed with the fashion and I was so happy I got the chance to support these designers because I have a feeling they are going to make a statement in the fashion world very soon.
Although, the fashion show was the highlight of my New York City trip, it was not the only thing I experienced. I didn’t get back to campus until around 3 A.M, so that means I must have more to share. So keep on reading for even more about my experience at Her Campus College Fashion Week in New York City.
I could not have survived this trip without my best friend, Lauren, who herself is a fashionista and the girl behind the lens when it comes to the photos on LivForStyle. Lauren and I killed it in the city, like we always do. It’s never a dull moment when the two of us are together, so I am so happy she was able to experience this night with me. We both dressed to impressed and after looking at the photos, I think we totally nailed it. Keep your eyes open for a whole post dedicated to our outfits. Coming soon to a screen near you 😉
Of course, the train ride to the city felt like it took forever. But when we finally arrived at the venue, it was show time. But, before the shows started we had the chance to check out all the fun tables scattered around the venue. These included some great sponsors and their wonderful products. The list included European Wax Center, Insomnia Cookies, Bertha Watches, Sparkling Ice, Boxed Water, and more.
The night consisted of four shows. The themes included Rush, Festival, Study Chic, and Girl’s Night Out. Naturally, the Girl’s Night Out show was my favorite because it featured lots of leather and knee high boots, which are such fall and winter staples. I really enjoyed that after each show, the audience was given about 15 minutes to mingle and network with other attendees. I made some great new contacts. All the models rocked every look. They were all so fierce and their smiles were contagious, leaving everyone in the audience in absolute wonder and awe. I can’t wait to go shopping because the models totally inspired me to try some new looks this season.
When the last show wrapped up, Lauren and I were both sad. We said our final good-byes to the friends we made, collected our stuff, and headed back to the subway. Our melancholy quickly evaporated when we took a peak inside our exclusive goodie bag from the show. To my surprise, the goodie bag was filled with awesome gifts. Inside I found a FitBit, Vince Camuto perfume, a Rebecca Minkoff clutch, a bunch of Maidenform items, a free service at the DryBar, Essie nail polish, the latest issue of People Style Watch magazine, Kind bars, and so much more.
When we hopped off the subway, our tummies were growling and we knew we wanted our night in the city to continue. After stopping at a local pub and having a much needed glass of wine, we talked for hours about the show and our goodie bags. Lauren and I had so much fun that when we finally looked at the time it was almost 1:30 A.M and quickly ran to Grand Central Station to catch the last train.
When we got back to campus around 3 A.M we couldn’t keep our eyes open. You know it’s been a great night in the city when your eyes can’t stay open, your body aches, your feet hurt, and your makeup is smudged. Lauren and I both agree that Saturday night was a night to remember. Lots of fashion, lots of laughs, lots of mingling, and lots of dancing, no wonder why we are still catching up on our sleep.
Thanks to Her Campus for sponsoring such an amazing event and thanks Lauren for being my partner in fashion.
