Their Serious Faces Say It's Fashion Week

As the video above tells you, Penn's own Fashion Week begins today. We'll forgive the over-the-top looks of unhappiness the models have because they did manage to get both Domenico De Sole AND Penn alum Tory Burch to grace our campus this week. Both are impressive catches by themselves, let alone together. And it doesn't hurt that a third of the audience at Domenico De Sole's address will probably be wearing Tory Burch flats. Check out the week's schedule after the jump.
