A dance party is almost always an excuse for runway revelry:
FIT is a dry campus, so when each of us moved into apartments off campus for our sophomore year, it meant that we didn’t have to play the quiet game in order to sip on Bacardi and Bordeaux. We. Threw. Fashion. Ragers. What is a fashion rager, you ask? It’s when you dress up to fit some ridiculous theme like “The Blood Clot” and dance to runway music downloaded off of The Fashion Spot. Alexander Wang’s remix of Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor” was our biggest hit, created for his football-inspired collection, which was the apex of sportiness that our clique (which some referred to as the ‘glamily’) encountered. Christmas events weren’t simply called a holiday party, but rather a ‘Nativity Rave’ where boys dressed as Jesus. And I made a crown of gold dreidles to resemble those Vanessa Traina-popularized Givenchy headbands. Want proof? Watch this video.
