New York Fashion Week and all of its crazy happenings aren't slated to start for another week, but if you've been keeping up with us on twitter, you will know that last night was already extremely event-filled. I found one event to be particularly interesting. Wet Seal and New York's number one radio station, Z100, hosted a Back-to-School blowout party where they unveiled the new BTS collection by Vanilla Star Jeans. The entire collection was designed by students. Yes, students. And no, not students from FIT or Parsons, but high school students. The autumn/winter line, which featured all of the season's necessities with everything from jeans, to skirts, to jackets, to tees (and much, much more), was completely designed in collaboration with students from the High School of Fashion Industries. Truly impressive.
