FIDM Orange County Fashion & Fun: Nick Verreos, model Amanda Fields Bennett and attendees at FIDM Orange County 3 days of Fashion 2016
If you've been keeping up with my BLOG here, you may know it is FIDM 3 Days of Fashion Summer Program time and I have had the honor as the college's Official Spokesperson, to make "Special Appearances" at all the four Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising/FIDM campuses, giving my "How I got to where I got" lecture, showing some of my designs and having fun meet & greets! I have already been to FIDM San Diego's 3 Days of Fashion (click HERE) as well as FIDM LA (HERE), so now it was time for FIDM Orange County.

FIDM Orange County is located in Irvine and at the heart of Southern California's fab Activewear and "Sun, Skate & Surf" fashion markets. During my visit to the campus for their "3 Days of Fashion", I brought one of my favorite models--Amanda Fields Bennett--as well as some of our NIKOLAKI and NV Nick Verreos designs for the students attending to enjoy, and had a great Meet & Greet session afterward. Here are some fun photos of the day:
