Nowadays fashion weeks seem more accessible than ever with enabling technologies like social media and live-streaming creating access to runway moments for fashion-lovers everywhere. But there’s still nothing quite like sitting in for the real thing. Going to Her Campus™ College Fashion Week® in Boston this September was an eye-opening experience—literally—since I was wearing my still-new-to-me ACUVUE OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ Technology.
Like any fashion week, the main event at College Fashion Week was the runway, which featured the styling of a few contemporary designers with Fall-appropriate pieces. I was able to sit front-and-center, thanks to ACUVUE® hosting me at the event. In a fast-paced situation like the fashion show, I really appreciated wearing ACUVUE® contact lenses since I was able to get in close and get the photos I wanted. And like I mentioned in my previous post about my initial experience wearing ACUVUE® lenses, I felt very comfortable wearing the lenses, even later at night when I would normally expect to experience dryness and discomfort.
In addition to the fashion show during the later part of the evening, College Fashion Week had various sponsors set up booths around the venue where you could connect with brands and demo their products.
If I had to pick, I think the best part about the event was seeing how committed Her Campus was to gearing College Fashion Week to real, college students. For the catwalk that commitment translated into casting real college students as models. Seeing the diversity of women in the show was a really positive experience, and you could tell that a part of the audience was actually there to cheer their friends on. The social network that the college experience creates is really amazing, and attending College Fashion Week really elevated that feeling of bringing women together to support each other over a fun, fashion-filled night.
