My First Fashion Show

Five years ago I was of 10 students selected through an intensive interview process to participate in FIDM's Debut fashion show. I had just finished my two year program, and was over the moon to be picked to design my own collection from start to finish. I sketched the designs, made the patterns, sewed the garments, constructed their accessories, knitted the little sweaters and assembled a business plan to get my line off and running. I chose to design FIDM's first-ever "tween" line. My models were between 10 and 12 years old. It was the most fun I ever had in school.

The show was held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. It was a big to-do, with real models and over 10,000 guests over the three days the show was held. 

Of course, I didn't have this blog back then, so I've never had a chance to brag to the world about this show you these pictures. But then today I was going through some old files, and found these. So here they are, my humble beginnings as a designer.

I have the video back in L.A. Would anyone want to watch the show if I uploaded it to Youtube?


  1. Awwww, this is so much fun. Sometimes you have to start "small" but you just had a fantastic beginning. :) I would love to see the video! And hey, love your dress you wore that day girl. Btw, haha, one girl (besides you) looks very familiar to me. ;) Kind of a small world.


  2. So so FUN! Gigi and I would love to watch the video :)

  3. I was there! I was there! I love the little blonde girl in the second to last picture. I think she was my favorite :)

  4. Dear, I like your blog very much, I can get many useful information. Hope that we can communicate with each other. By the way, have you ever used memory card software ? Unfortunately I lost my memory card data. I do not know how to do.


Thanks for your comments! Hope you stop by again soon! XO!
