Hello FIDM OC: Nick Verreos, FIDM OC Campus August 2014 Open House
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of going to sunny and gorgeous Orange County and making a "Special Appearance" at FIDM OC--located in Irvine California-- for their End-of-Summer August 2014 Open House. I always love visiting the OC and particular the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM OC Campus since everyone there is always SO sweet, welcoming and it gives me a PERFECT excuse to wear one of my favorite colors: PINK; since the predominant color on the loft-like campus is pink.

FIDM Open House is a chance for high school students (and post-graduates as well) who are thinking about a career in Fashion, Graphic Design, Visual Display, Merchandise Product Development, Film & TV Costume Design, and so on--to check out the FIDM OC campus, get to know the facilities, meet Alumni, Instructors...and, as was the case this weekend...get some Hot Dogs and refreshments too:
