The digital age of today helps in every way across the world, connecting people, culture and identity. With the use of cellphones, tablets, laptops and such it is ideal that fast fashion is greatly affected in a big way. No matter the age, gender or sex, it is a fact that fashion has grown to be faster, through photos, blogs, videos, and inspirations. Fashion forecasting, trends and many fashion shows whether big or small have used social media as resources to connect with the many hats worn in the fashion business of today.
It is believed that college girls are on the top of the list to create new trends, or inspire a new fashion forward look. With the start of new schools all over the country in different cities, with several cultures it would be the perfect time to develop a fashion tone. College is that point in life where your no longer a girl yet not a woman and life is full of surprises every moment. Theres homecoming, midterms, hot guys, freedom, campus life and oh joy to the parties. So of course most college girls get fashion inspiration from social media and try to dress the part of the woman they want to be.
Recently for all the fashionistas out there, who have watched all the fancy fashion shows saw the glamorous ready-to-wear garments rip the runway. As amazing Mercedes Benz Fashion week was, many of us snap back to reality in terms of street style of today. The fall trends are on arise and manufacturers help produce the imitations to everyones favorite brands at low prices getting college girls equpit for school.
October in San Francisco, California is the last stop for College Fashion Week, by Her Campus Media. Her Campus Media is a social community in many cities that gathers ideas, inspiration and provides information for college girls by University. Whether it is fashion, healthy eating or top five places to visit you can always count on the leaders at your school from HerCampus Media.
As for the College fashion week in major cities, HerCampus Media provides a very urban fashion show collaborating with BOOHOO the clothing brand, Tresemme hair products and hair stylists as well as BareMinerals. And of course I wont forget to mention its a weekend full of free events, alcohol and pumping music. Now the cool thing about the college fashion week is, its sort of like a secret society in such a way that attending these events is invite only. Allowing college girls to feel exclusive and important in society, which now a days isn’t very often.
Bare minerals threw a Pre-party in the Westfield location, providing makeup do’s and dont’s as well as party bags with free select items and even small make overs. Sounds like music to the ears doesn’t it ? No better way to make a young lady feel than to give her makeup and invite a to an exclusive show !
The Fashion show begins with an event at the Fashion show location The Origin Sf in the Fillmore District. All the companies collaborating are there with booths full of activities, the smell of curling irons, long lines for glitter eyeshadow, cocktails and cocktails for the over age and of course Photo Booth fun. The show begins shortly and had three different themes with several looks from head to toe. Did i forget to mention the goodie bags in eery sit before the show began. They were filled with magazines, coupons, free foundation, and much more!
The three scenes were Imperial: embody easy urban elegance in sleek military styling in wear with anything khaki hues, Brooklyn Princess: go from street to sleek as powdery cosmetic tones transform sporty separates, and Woodlanders:heritage is revisited in Kitsch forest prints and earthy hues. It was quite an amazing show that gave the opportunity for college girls in the city and bay area a chance to feel important. The best part was the models not only wearing an affordable brand but the models themselves being average college students walking the runway and putting on a show.
As we all know and incorporate into our daily tweets and insta posts #’s (hashtags) are the it factor. For the show the hashtags and posting of Boohoos garments on display got you a free piece from their collection.
If you couldn’t make it this year, signup for next year and stay in the know about fashion events in your community. Theres nothing greater than networking and enjoying someone else’s work.
It is always a good idea to get social, so put yourself out there and get in the know at your school! Check out the photos and videos of the College fashion week scene @HERCAMPUSMEDIA #COLLEGEFASHIONWEEK
