This past March was the FIDM Debut 2012 Fashion Show! This is where graduates of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM (my alma mater!) Advanced Fashion Design--as well as Theater Costume Design--get to showcase their collections in a FABULOUS stage of the Santa Monica Barker Hanger in front of industry professionals, their peers--oh and yes, over 5,000 other people!!!
Host With The Fashion Most: Nick Verreos MC'ing FIDM Debut 2012 Fashion Gala
I had the pleasure of MC'ing and hosting FIDM Debut 2012 and introducing the fashions and the very talented graduates. The designers are tomorrow's Next Rising Fashion Stars--and who knows--maybe future Project Runway contestants...or Winners!!!

Back when I was at FIDM (don't even look for the year!), I was one of those graduates and did the Debut (It's on YouTube somewhere--I DARE you to find it!). So, Debut will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. So much so, that for several years in the past, I mentored and was one of the Debut Instructors.
