Fashion in the Desert: I am so excited to be headlining and emceeing a fabulous fashion show from my Alma Mater, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM NEXT MONDAY, March 18, 2013 as part of Fashion Week El Paseo 2013 in Palm Desert California. The show, called "A Tribute to Three Decades of FIDM Debut Designers" will be comprised of 7 collections by 7 FIDM alumn designers.

The other designers include Angela Avanesyan, Clay Sadler (both of whom I was one of their Debut Instructors/Mentors), Paul Hernandez, Heathyr Lawrence (who I had the pleasure recently of working with when I hosted the " Fashion Face/Off"), Joe Vilaiwan and noted FIDM alumna Karen Kane.

FIDM Debut 2012 Fashion Show at Fashion Week El Paseo 2012

What is the FIDM Debut Program: The college--of which I have been an instructor since 2003 and Spokesperson as well--annually selects 10 outstanding students from the Fashion Design Program to be part of the FIDM Advanced Fashion Design Program, where they spend 10 months designing and creating a collection, which is then unveiled to a live audience of over 10,000 people at the Santa Monica Barker Hanger in the "Debut Show". I was one of those honored students--back in the day (don't you DARE look up what year!)--to be picked for the Advanced Fashion Design Program and show my "Debut Collection".

On Monday night, as part of the "Tribute to Thirty Years of FIDM Debut" show, I will be showing a capsule collection from my high-end red carpet NIKOLAKI collection. This will be the first time showing this collection in a runway show so I am beyond EXCITED! Hope you can make it and hope to see you there!
