Continuing with my FIDM Debut 2013 Recaps, we're onto Day Two (Click HERE for the "Day One" recap). Day Two was a very, very big day for me. I had to go to the Downtown L.A. main campus of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM to emcee the L.A. Open House, then go to Santa Monica to make a "special appearance" for picture taking at the Fashion Club Debut 2013 Pre-Party, and then I had to host the actual Debut 2013 Fashion Show as well as do my Meet-and-Greet afterward in my "Nick tent". Without further ado...let's get to my Recap:
L.A. Open House:

FIDM L.A. held their annual "Debut 2013 Open House" right on Hope Park, adjacent to the main campus. There were several huge tents set up and it was packed with every seat taken! The FIDM Open House is a way anyone interested in possibly attending FIDM--along with their parents/family members--to tour the campus, get to know the facilities, meet instructors, grads, and speak to Admissions Advisors about the college.

Side View--Of course, I couldn't miss the lovely gals--and a couple of guys--in the FIDM L.A. Open House 2013 audience sitting on the side of the stage--Hope Park, Downtown Los Angeles
As the Official Spokesperson for FIDM, I had the honor of emceeing the Open House which I began with greeting the audience. I then held an FIDM Open House Runway Walk-Off, where I chose people from the audience--at random--to do a runway walk right in the middle of the tent!
It was so much fun! Amongst all the future "Naomi Campbell's", there was a beauty queen with a crown and sash (see photo above), a fashionista mom with a great hat, plus I even tried to set up an "Open House Love Connection" as well!
Afterward, I hosted a panel discussion with FIDM grads, discussing their experiences at FIDM and what they were up to now--and what advice they could best give incoming FIDM students in regards to how to get the most out of the College.
Then, I took lots of pics with the attendees in an informal "Nick Open House Meet-and-Greet"--Next, I grabbed a quick lunch (a boy's gotta eat!), did an outfit change (to a Calvin Klein Collection apple green suit!) and then, headed to The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, to make a special Photo-Op Appearance at the Fashion Club Debut 2013 Pre-Party, as well as to host the FIDM Debut 2013 Fashion Show.
