FIDM Debut Highlights Work in Fashion, Costume Design, Textiles and Interior Design

The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising hosted its annual Debut runway show and gala on April 2 at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., where 11 student designers presented their collections.

In addition, the show featured the work of six students in FIDM’s advanced theater costume design program, who created a retrospective of music- and dance-themed costumes ranging from an ’80s-era, Madonna-inspired design to a bevy of Vegas-era Elvis costumes.

The show also featured the Chairing Styles designs, a project sponsored by the Cotton Board/Cotton Inc., which pairs students in FIDM’s fashion, interior design and textile design programs to create a textile print, which is used for a fashion design and a chair design.
