 LA Style--Nick Verreos at FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion" 2018

Two weeks ago, we started the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM "3 Days of Fashion" Summer Program, a program involving high school students who come to the FIDM campuses--whichever one they choose and register at: LA, San Diego, San Francisco and Orange County--and get to experience life as a "student" of the college. These students get to take draping, sketching, styling workshops as well as go on inspirational shopping trips. They also attend seminars with FIDM Alumni, like myself! This year, FIDM partnered with Skid Row Denim & Apparel to have the students be creative as well as help a worthy cause.

As a Graduate of the college and being the Official Spokesperson, I have the WONDERFUL chance to travel to all the campuses during the "3 Days of Fashion" and do a "Special Appearance/Lecture" including a presentation of my NIKOLAKI gowns for the students.

My first stop was the Los Angeles campus. I had the chance to be part of the first two days of FIDM's Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion" which I blogged about HERE and HERE. But the third day was my time to give the students my "How I became a successful fashion designer" story as well as show my NIKOLAKI designs. Here are photos recap'ing the fabulous day:

Before I got started with my lecture and fashion show, it was time for one of my FAVORITE parts of doing "3 Days of Fashion" and that's the "Boy Catwalk Contest"!! Sometimes I like to bring the Dads up but this time, I wanted to switch it up and bring the young men attending FIDM's "3 Days of Fashion" and have them do a "Walk-Off" Catwalk Contest: Who Does Runway The Best! Well, it was a very tough competition but they all did exceptionally well:
