BOSTON, MA (September 28, 2015) - Her Campus Media, the top media and marketing company for college women, is once again bringing its renowned fashion expertise to the runway for its 4th annual College Fashion Week® tour hitting Boston, NYC, DC and Atlanta this October. A nationwide, open casting call has slated hundreds of real college women of all shapes and sizes from numerous campuses and backgrounds to model the season's hottest trends for a spectacular catwalk strut–right in their own college towns.
"College Fashion Week is all about the real woman," said Windsor Hanger Western, cofounder and President of Her Campus and emcee of these events. "Our events aim to empower all women to look and feel beautiful, strong, confident, and stylish."
The diversity of the College Fashion Week® tour is seamlessly aligned with its official media sponsor, StyleWatch, the go-to millennial fashion and style resource celebrating people of all sizes, skin tones, hair types and personal tastes through publishing street style photos from all over the world. Christina Decker, an Assistant Editor from StyleWatch, will be co-emceeing the events alongside Hanger Western.
The evenings' events will also include live performances from talented local artists, photo booths, multiple beauty bars, snacks, fabulous giveaways and goody bags full of luxurious swag – all thanks to College Fashion Week's amazing sponsors.
Official fashion sponsors include leading national retailer Simon, and SOREL, lauded creator of the boldest boots you'll see this fall. VIP transportation will be provided courtesy of always sleek and fashionable Fiat, the event's official car sponsor. In the area of runway primping, model makeup will be provided by Milani, brows will be perfected by European Wax Center, and the ever-important feminine care sponsor is Monthly Gift.
Rounding out the inspiration behind College Fashion Week is Her Campus's support of the Let Girls Learn initiative, a government-wide commitment to bring increased focus, resources and impact to the critical issue of girls' education.
"We are thrilled to be able to give our models and attendees an unparalleled, empowering experience that will leave them looking and feeling inspired," said Hanger Western.
The event is free to the public, and registration is currently open. For more information, visit collegefashionweek.com.
