This New Tech HS FC Pres plans to study Social Media or Fashion Design at FIDM!
New Tech High School FC President Tori Hall shares her experience from FC Day at FIDM in San Francisco. She participated in our unconventional garment challenge!
The people are truly what make FIDM, well, FIDM! The instructors are fabulous and make everything feel like a party. Hands down my favorite part of Fashion Club Day at FIDM was being surrounded by so many lovely people who are so passionate about every single thing they do; there is something about being fully immersed in creativity that lights a spark inside of me.
My team ventured out of the box for our look; we created a mod piece that took inspiration from Audrey Hepburn’s style along with elements of what we called a gothic bride.
After bringing the concept to life, our final product was comparable to a high-low jumpsuit backed by a lengthy train. Down the midline of the bodice ran a panel, to add depth to the look, as well as pops of orange to add an engaging, colorful aspect.

For the final touches, we clothed a half-up/half-down hair-do in a thin layer of bubble wrap to punctuate the goal of this look as mod.
For the challenge, we used trash bags, bottle caps, thin and thick bubble wrap, and fluorescent orange tape.
I would recommend Fashion Club Day at FIDM for anyone and everyone who has the slightest bit of an interest in the fashion industry. It is a great experience filled with beautiful people, fantastic staff and workshops throughout the day, and is 100% worth the trip to FIDM no matter how close or far you are from a campus.

Although I am still deciding whether to major in Social Media Marketing or Fashion Design, I can say with certainty I will be attending FIDM to do it. No matter where I end up, I know the creativity, work ethic and passion I will learn to cultivate from my chosen area of study will be worth the world.
