Last week, I had the honor of hosting a fabulous FIDM Red Carpet Trends Fashion Show at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM Museum showcasing the newest "Red Carpet Collection" gowns from the NIKOLAKI line designed by myself and David Paul.

The evening was a celebration of all things Hollywood and Red Carpet. In the lead-up to the Academy Awards, FIDM Museum asked me to host this fabulous event in the "foyer"/lobby of the new 22nd Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibition. As an alumni of FIDM and the College's Official Spokesperson, of course, I jumped at the chance. I was also honored once I found out that the ever-so-chic Barbara Bundy--FIDM Museum Director and Vice President of Education at FIDM--would be introducing me!

Not only would I show what trends one might see on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet with our NIKOLAKI gowns but there would also be Champagne, "savories" (a mashed potato bar!), plus every guest had a chance to check out the fabulous exhibition which includes over 100 costumes, including the five Academy Award nominees for Best Costume Design.
