Students often ask their favorite teacher to be the advisor!
Membership (to an official FIDM Fashion Club) has its privileges! One lucky high school Junior will be awarded a full year scholarship, and two Seniors will receive $5,000 each to attend FIDM.
The Fashion Club Advisor helps the President run the club. It is the responsibility of the President to find an Advisor to commit to the role. Ask your teachers, librarians, coaches, college counselors if they would be interested in serving as your Advisor.
If you have a question about who you should ask to be your Advisor, just send us an email and we’ll help you figure it out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note to Advisors:
You can get as involved as you would like in Fashion Club, but the minimal requirement for Advisors is to chaperone the meetings. Some Advisors plan field trips, invite guest speakers, and help organize fundraisers so clubs can attend the annual FIDM DEBUT Runway Show in Los Angeles.
Visit the FIDM Educators website for classroom resources and special grant opportunities. You can also request a college representative from FIDM to visit your school to give a presentation on everything from “Learning the Art of Trendspotting” to “Economics of the Apparel Industry.”
