Over the weekend, we joined over 500 collegiettes for the annual New York City College Fashion Week. In addition to tasty treats, mingling, and amazing gift bags, attendees got to see collections from five up-and-coming fashion designers, including My Social Canvas, Foray, Ali & Ariel, Frill Clothing, and Bow & Drape.
Sponsors in attendance include StyleWatch magazine and a couple favorite fashion labels; Rebecca Minkoff and Vince Camuto. On the beauty front, European Wax Center was on-site to offer eyebrow shaping and consultations. Hair blowout salon Drybar, named “100 Brilliant Ideas of 2010” by Entrepreneur magazine, was also there (and hooked us up with dry shampoo and a free blowdry voucher!). Another major sponsor of the event was Perfumania, which specializes in the sale of genuine designer fragrances and skin care products.
Providing tasty beverages was Sparkling ICE who kept us hydrated and offered complimentary makeup touch-ups. Other sweet treats and drinks included Boxed Water, Insomnia Cookies, and a fully stocked candy bar. Fitbit was also there, showing off their latest Flex 2 ultra-slim, swim-proof fitness wristband that features a removable tracker. On the bling front, luxury watch maker Bertha Watches was showcasing their high fashion timepieces and offering attendees a chance to design and win their own watch.
We had a blast and got to meet so many incredible young ladies! Thank you to HerCampus Media and all the sponsors, including Hanes, Maidenform, and KIND healthy grains (who provided the beautiful flowers) for organizing an amazing event. Check out the video and gallery below to see all the action!
