 3 Days of Fashion Welcome!--Nick Verreos at FIDM San Francisco "3 Days of Fashion" 2019 Summer Program

This last month, I have been back in the East Coast in Brooklyn, NY doing my Consulting Producer duties for the next season of Bravo TV's "Project Runway" but I did get away for a few days to go back to the West Coast to attend to one of my other jobs--being the Spokesperson and Co-Chair of Fashion Design for FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. First off, I flew to San Francisco for an Appearance at this year's FIDM San Francisco "3 Days of Fashion" Summer Program.

 Almost There--Golden Gate Bridge and Transamerica Pyramid, San Francisco 

I always love visiting San Francisco, especially since I spent some of my childhood and high-school years in the Bay Area. And now, as the Fashion Design Co-Chair, I have an added responsibility to represent the College and all our campuses in a more, academic manner.

Welcome!--Nick Verreos, FIDM San Francisco "3 Days of Fashion" 2019

The FIDM "3 Days of Fashion" is a unique 3-day Summer Program that high school students attend to learn how it is to be a FIDM student: Learning from FIDM instructors, collaborating on hands-on workshops, meeting fashion industry professionals and taking part in workshops on fashion sketching, draping, trend spotting, interior design, social media and much more.

On Stage--Nick Verreos at FIDM San Francisco "3 Days of Fashion" 2019

This year I got the chance to make a "Special Appearance" on the first day of FIDM San Francisco's "3 Days of Fashion", doing a lecture, presentation on "How I Got to Where I Got" as a fashion designer, telling my story from childhood to...attending FIDM, starting my own company, designing dresses that were worn by Katy Perry, Heidi Klum and Beyonce...as well as "Project Runway" and now, my job as the Co-Chair of FIDM Fashion Design.

This year, I also got the chance to interview an illustrious FIDM San Francisco Alumna, fashion designer Colleen Quen, who also talked about her story and time at FIDM and even brought one of her designs to show the students:

After finishing my day at FIDM San Francisco, I went to the Oakland International Airport to catch my flight back home to Los Angeles...and well, I got there and found out that my flight had been cancelled and I had been re-scheduled for a much later flight...As I was about to get a little annoyed at the situation, I noticed that my lovely Oakland Airport Southwest Airlines Ticket Counter employee was wearing THE SAME readers I had! #Seriously...take a look:
