It's 3 Days of FASHION!!--Nick Verreos onstage with model Amanda Fields Bennett wearing NIKOLAKI silk charmeuse and "feathered" taffeta gown--FIDM LA Main Campus "3 Days of Fashion" 2017

Time for the FINAL FIDM "3 Days of Fashion" for Summer 2017! In the past two weeks, I have had the pleasure of visiting the FIDM campuses throughout California for their annual "3 Days of Fashion" Summer Program--you can check out my BLOGS on those HERE for FIDM San Diego, HERE for FIDM OC in LA, and HERE for FIDM San Francisco. So now, it was time for my "Special Appearance" at the FIDM LA Main Campus "3 Days of Fashion"!

Here are my photos from last week's FABULOUS and SUPER FUN FIDM "3 Days of fashion" 2017 including my "Special Appearance", a special Fashion Presentation of my NIKOLAKI gowns on models, plus a DAD CATWALK CONTEST (!) and a Meet & Greet after all the fun.
Let's start with that aforementioned "Dad Catwalk Contest":

The Dad Winners: Nick Verreos with the three finalists of the "Dad Catwalk Contest" atb FIDM LA Main campus "3 Days of Fashion" 2017. 

Right as I got onstage to begin my "Special Appearance", I asked all the dads in the audience to come up onstage and then I surprised them (or shocked them, depending on who you speak to!) when I told them that they were to walk the "runway" for the FIDM 3 Days of Fashion Dad Catwalk Contest.

They were all AMAZING and good sports about it (Thank Goodness no one got mad at me!), and in fact our top winning dad, really embraced the term "catwalk" when he literally got on the floor--on all fours--and began slithering like a cat--or Runway Panther! You can only imagine the reaction from the crowd--and especially his daughter! (she was snapping photos and filming video naturally!). I'm sure if you looked on Instagram long enough, you'll find the "blackmail" video :)--Now, let's get to the REAL models:
