NICK APPEARANCES.....FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion 2013" Finale: Blog Recap, LOTS of Pics!








Shorty Shorts: Nick Verreos walks the "Runway"--FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion 2013"



This past Friday was the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM "3 Days of Fashion" finale day in the main Downtown L.A. campus. As part of my "3 Days of Fashion 2013" tour, I have already been to the FIDM Orange County and FIDM San Francisco campuses, and this time it was L.A.'s big day. Being that it is the main campus and Los Angeles, it's always one of the biggest events--in terms of the attendance and scope of the final day. There were an estimated 280+ attendees and I was honored to be the Final Day "Guest Star". The weather here in L.A. was HOT; about 90+ degrees Fahrenheit hot. So, I decided to give a "Summer Casual yet Still Sassy" look and wore a shorts outfit--consisting of a white Top Man dress shirt, lilac-colored Top Man jacket and pink shorts. Oh, and yes, a dark fuchsia bow tie and Etro pocket hankie. I kind of looked as if I was going to The Kentucky Derby!

I also brought some of my NV Nick Verreos and NIKOLAKI dresses and gowns for the appearance and fashion presentation to be worn by two of L.A.'s most fabulous models--Amber Lindauer and Amanda Fields, both with L.A. Models.






Tweet Girls: Right before I got there, all the FIDM LA "3 Days of Fashion 2013" attendees were instructed to tweet away for their "Go Social" contest. As you can see from the photo above, they followed directions real well--FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion 2013"

Say Cheese LA: Upon arriving, this above was what greeted me! A tent-full audience of students and parents, eager to see me, my "FIDM 3 Days of Fashion" presentation and see some of my fashions (I hope!)--FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion 2013"







Runway Boy: I began my appearance by doing my traditional "FIDM Runway Blessing" walk. As a bonus, I also decided to find out if there were any Dads "in the house". Only ONE man raised his hand (there were more Dads, but they were hiding!).





Runway King: Here's the one Dad who worked the FIDM L.A. "3 Days of Fashion" runway and got a HUGE applause from the almost 300 people in attendance. I love that he tried to mimic my hands on the high-hips pose that I had done in my runway walk beforehand. I did that as an example of what he should do. I didn't realize he would actually do it!



Then it was time to show some of my "NV Nick Verreos" dresses as part of my presentation:

Cheetah Haute: One of the attendees at this year's FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion" was a young man by the name of Dylan. He was from Utah and he bought some FAB Cheetah-print booties (yes, HE bought them while on one of the FIDM Los Angeles "3Days of Fashion 2013" shopping trips--and in fact, he wore them onstage). Above are the booties--and Dylan Rae (second from left), along with myself, model Amanda Fields (far left) and another FIDM Los Angeles "3 Days of Fashion 2013" attendee (far right).

Preview of one of the major fashion events in Romania!

galauad5 

 Yesterday evening I had the pleasure to attend the UAD Gala, meaning our very own fashion students presented their graduate collections just like I did last year in Bucharest. I must say though, the differences between the two events (even if they intend to be the same thing) are so big, I just couldn't comprehend why is it so. 
First, there is the location, which was a hotel so glamorous, so grand, so amazing which provided another important thing: the space - huge space, everybody could attend and had a seat! Then there is this feeling of an important event, and it actually is in our country, since you get to go there based on invitation only. And there were journalists, photographers, TV personalities, you know..the important people.
  Everything was beautiful and very well put together. From the stage, to the lights and the collections themselves, I was utterly amazed by the whole event. Plus, I got a very great spot to take pictures, but I will show them soon enough. For now I leave you with some of the backstage ones and a sneak peak of what you are going to expect from these marvelous students.
