DEBUT Meet & Greet--Nick Verreos with FIDM DEBUT 2019 attendees--FIDM DEBUT 2019 Meet and Greet VIP Tent, The Barker Hangar Santa Monica CA

Following this year's FIDM DEBUT show, I had the privilege of meeting-and-greeting anyone who wanted to stop by afterward....in my very own "FIDM DEBUT VIP Tent", located right next to the event at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. I had a BLAST meeting everyone, taking photos, selfies, group photos and giving LOTS of hugs and fashion double kisses!

PROJECT RUNWAY.....Behind The Scenes of the "Dapper Dan"-Inspired Episode 5 Challenge

Fab Streetwear--Models (L to R) Asia, Aviana and Nora Sommerkamp in Dapper Dan-inspired designs from "Project Runway" Season 17 designers Venny Etienne, Bishme Cromartie and Renee Hill--Bravo's Project Runway Season 17, Brooklyn NY

Last week was Episode 5 of Bravo's "Project Runway" Season 17. The Challenge was to design and create a look exemplifying "Luxury Streetwear" inspired by the one-and-only Dapper Dan! The designers visited his Harlem Atelier and got his words of wisdom about the industry, his passion and his influence on streetwear style. As a Consulting Producer on this season, I got the chance to work behind-the-scenes during the episode...

And while the designers were out visiting his famed Harlem Design Studio, I was tasked to find Dapper Dan-inspired fabrics at Mood Fabrics NYC, that they would hopefully use for their designs during the challenge.

Here are my Behind-the-Scenes photos of meeting THE MAN...and much more:

Last week on Bravo's "Project Runway" Season 17, it was time for an UNCONVENTIONNAL Challenge--one of the favorites of "Project Runway" fans (not so much of the designers....maybe just speaking from a very, very....personal point of view). The designers were driven to the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in Staten Island (and so was I, as a Consulting Producer) and challenged to create designs from camping supplies (that yes, I helped pick--sorry!)...

They had to sleep, as well as create their designs there. We had a TORRENTIAL rainstorm THE DAY OF the runway show and well, let me just tell you--it was a couple of days that I will never forget!

I am NOT a camping sort of fellow but luckily, my better half David Paul was there with me, helping us out with the supplies, camping workroom...as well as loading the designs onto trucks in the rain.....to get to the runway!

Here are my EXCLUSIVE behind the scenes photos:
