Last August 12, the new BYM batch, along with the Chalk Magazine team and students from different schools in the metro gathered to witness the launch of these new crops of talent. In partnership with fast fashion go-to brand H&M, The Big University Night was one of Chalk’s most memorable events ever!
Kicking off the affair was an in-store OOTD contest by the students who attended. Using H&M items, they curated ready-to-wear campus cool wardrobes. Among all those who participated, student from UST got the bragging rights after winning the best outfit of the night.
