Went down to the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica to watch a parade of talent… the FIDM Debut 2010! I wore my Telephone inspired outfit and decided to never play it safe ever again.
It started with the showcasing of the 10 scholarship winners from Fashion Design that participated in the Guess denim competition.
Then the Judy Garland / Liza Minilli tribute pieces from Costume Design majors.
The show then showcased the collections rom the 10 students that were breath taking.
I was sitting way back behind 20,000 people so sorry for the photo quality! The thing I love about fashion, art and FIDM is that when you think everythings been done before you see new talents that blows you away. Chase your dreams!
My favorite designer was Meghann Alaina Fanara who gave up a ballet scholarship to attend FIDM to design children apparel. She won the Karen Kain award for FIDM and had a spectacular collection and the most adorable models.
My favorite collection is the Kapasa Musonda from.. Zambia! Her passion for design, her highly detailed piece and very wearable couture made me love her collection! She started her own line 3 years ago at the age of 17. She has won numerous global award at home and aboard. She is a force to be reckoned with. Love you girl!
