Nick at FIDM SF Open House 2014---Nick Verreos with FIDM San Francisco 2014 Open House attendees
This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of flying to San Francisco to make a "Special Appearance" at the FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising San Francisco campus and their 2014 Open House. After moving from Caracas Venezuela during my adolescent years, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area--"The Peninsula", to be exact--and so, it's always a fun treat to come back to my old stompin' grounds of San Francisco!
FIDM San Francisco is located right in Union Square--a perfect location in the "nucleus" of SF Fashion!
Hello FIDM San Francisco: The FIDM Open House is an event that allows incoming students and anyone thinking of attending FIDM to tour the campus, check out the facilities, meet instructors and alumni, as well as get to know the "FIDM" environment. As a bonus of the Open House--and as the FIDM Official Spokesperson (and Alumn)--I did a "Special Appearance" and speech to the FIDM San Francisco Open House attendees.
A Packed House: Views of my "Nick Special Appearance" audience. Right when I walked in, I made sure to take a photo of everyone in attendance--FIDM San Francisco 2014 Open House
Nick Lecture: During my "appearance", I spoke of how I got to where I am--in terms of my career-- and how FIDM was my "trampoline". I also talked about many other things and gave my "Nick Advice" on how to succeed at FIDM and in the Fashion Industry--and beyond!
Afterward...it was time for a Meet-and-Greet and Twitter, Facebook-and-Instagram Pics:
