FIDM Debut 2008

The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising "Debut 2008" fashion show last Friday was amazing. I loved being around all the fashion and energy. I took over 160 photos during that two hour night in Barker Hangar and watched 11 design students showcase their collections.

The theme for theatre design was Moulin Rouge. Can can girls came out dancing with extravagant dresses. One model wore a unique pinwheel dress.

My brother's friend designed the highlight of the show: an intricate diamond-type studded dress with feathers that the model showcased while swinging high up above the runway.

I saw so many dresses that I'd love to wear like the swirly white and silver dress and bright yellow and black fluffy dress.

There was an interesting kimono-type dress and trio of ivory dresses that were worn. They looked like great eye candy on the runway, but I'm not sure if they would work in real life.

I definitely was diggin' the menswear. One designer gave grays, whites and plaids a new spin. The male models wearing the designs weren't shabby either.

To top it off, I got giddy at the end of the show when I got to meet AndraƩ Gonzalo and Nick Verreos ck from Project Runway Season 2. Here's a picture of Nick presenting a scholarship winner award at the beginning of the show:
