San Antonio's Night Of Fashion... What Brings You To San Antonio: Reporter Gina Garcia and Nick Verreos on the IMAGINE 2010 red carpet Last week, I was invited to San Antonio Texas to host the third annual IADT Imagine Fashion Show. I'm always excited to return to San Antonio since my parents, my sister and my gorgeous niece and nephew live there! Uncle Nick...with his nephew and niece, Alain and Casia So it's a chance to be "Uncle Nick", if only for a brief time. I also love coming back to host IADT San Antonio's Imagine show--the "Graduation Fashion Show" of the school's top fashion design students. This is the THIRD time I have been honored with the task of hosting the show so I guess we are doing something right! Good Luck Students! The audience at Nick Verreos' IADT San Antonio lecture My day began with an inspiring lecture to new incoming IADT students, where I told them about how I got interested in fashion, how my mom would buy me all my sketching notebooks and how my dad was so excited when I finally told him that I wanted to be a DESIGNER!!!!! I also gave them a "Nick Pep Talk" on making it in the business and how they can make the most out of their time in fashion school. Room For Ten: Inside view of Nick Verreos' Limo to the IADT San Antonio Imagine 2010 Fashion Show Before I knew it, I had to return to my hotel room, and change into my "evening" attire for my hosting duties. IADT San Antonio always treats me like a STAR and this was no exception. Take a look at the limo I had all to myself on the way to the Laurie Auditorium, site of this year's Imagine 2010 Fashion Show! Very "flossy flossy!" (do people say that anymore?) Step & Repeat: Nick Verreos, make-up artist Starley Murray, and Creative Director/Producer of Imagine 2010, Tony Harris When I arrived, there was a fabulous red carpet waiting for me, where I did many interviews for local press and TV, including a fun interview with Gina Garcia, the "San Antonio Fashionista" (see video at the end of this post). Shoes, shoes and more shoes: Backstage at the IADT San Antonio Imagine 2010 Fashion Show IMAGINE 2010 went without a hitch: 19 designers showed their mini-collections to an audience of over 500 guests, all there to support San Antonio's Next Great Fashion Designers. It was a diverse showing, from children's clothing, evening gowns to stylish men's collections. IADT designer Jaime Galvan and his "Romantic City Vampire" models in black with gold details. IADT designer Nanako Pastol with her "Grandmother's Vinatge Kimono" inspired children's collection (and her ADORABLE models!). Nick Verreos poses with the IADT Staff, including Cynthia Rangel: Fashion Program Chair, IADT San Antonio Imagine 2010 (2nd from the right). Afterward, there was an "After Party" Meet-and-Greet at the Laurie Auditorium's red carpet lobby, where I got to take photos and sign autographs with every designer--and what seemed like all 500 of the attending guests! I can't wait to return next year! Click Below for a great Video of IADT San Antonio Imagine 2010 Fashion Show and my Interview with Gina Garcia, SA Fashionista:
