Fashion Institute for Design and Merchandising

Photos from FIDM's website

I don't know why I never wrote on here to tell you, I went to visit The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising- LA over spring break! If you don't know, FIDM is where Project Runway was/is filmed, how exciting.

I met with Bryann Hill who is an Admission's Adviser there. She said my personality tells her I will be a good fashion designer, that's kinda funny but I am glad she can see it. If you are visiting LA anytime soon, I highly suggest you set up a tour with the school cause it is phenomenal! The campus is gorgeous and very inspirational. I have to say, they have a hell of a computer lab, there is a foot pool that you can dip your feet in while you are doing your homework. They even included beach beds with a swinging desk so you can lay while your on your laptop. I seriously couldn't believe it!

Security is pretty tight with the school. You have to always have your badge or visiting badge with you or else they won't let you in. It's kinda crazy. Because there are about 90% females on their campus, security is extra tight at night. They lock their campus up and they even provide a shuttle to drop you off at your apt-1 block away... that's funny too!

But on a serious note, if you are looking to pursue fashion, you should look into FIDM. A lot of famous designers actually graduated from FIDM such as Ralph Lauren, Estee Lauder (founder of it), founders of Juicy Couture, FIDM winners from various seasons, and so many more people I don't know about.

If you put a lot of effort into finding a job post graduation, you are 90% likely to find a job in the industry you are pursuing... just thinking about it, that is where my heart is... FIDM, here I come!

until next time
Get your Fash-on!
