FIDM.....FIDM San Francisco Open House: Nick Verreos Special Appearance & Lecture RECAP!

 Nick Verreos at FIDM San Francisco Open House

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of flying to SAN FRANCISCO to make a "Special Appearance" and give my "How I Got To Where I Got" Lecture at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising FIDM San Francisco Campus. As an FIDM Grad and Spokesperson, it is always a joy to talk about my early love of sketching and fashion and how FIDM was the PERFECT PLACE for me to help me achieve my dreams in the fashion world!

Throughout the year, all four of the FIDM campuses--Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and San Francisco--hold their "Open Houses", a chance for high school (and post graduate) students (as well their parents) to check out the campuses, meet instructors, alumni, see student's work, and get to meet successful FIDM graduates--like myself!

Ready for FIDM San Francisco Open House!--My mom sent a "Care Package" recently (LOVE HER!) and in it was this fab bow tie, rosette lapel pin AND pocket hankie!

I was excited to be invited to the FIDM San Francisco campus to make a "Special Appearance"...Here is my Photo Recap of the fun day, including my Lecture, Meet & Greet and giving away a copy of my new book "The Pageant Coloring Book" to a lucky FIDM SF Open House attendee:

Hi Nick! Your recent video posted on Nov 4 is so lovely. I am just getting back to sewing and i love your videos. So creative and easy to understand. I was wondering if you meant that i needed to cut 2 of the left and 2 of the right with the bow for a total of 4 pieces. What about the back of the blouse. I'm still learning so forgive me if i didn't get it.
