We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2023 FIDM Fashion Club Gives Back Contest!
We challenged FIDM Fashion Clubs to work together to give to their favorite local community organizations. We asked them to write a mission statement for their Fashion Club, including their philosophy on giving back to the community and how they will carry out their mission. FIDM Fashion Clubs then shared photos of how they were giving back.
The winning entry was selected for outstanding creativity, presentation, originality, and completeness. Discover the winning contest entry and be inspired to give back to your community and help others!
Winner: Northside Health Careers High School, San Antonio, TX
The winner is awarded one sewing machine, one $50 VISA gift card, one FIDM swag bag filled with sewing supplies, and one sewing workshop taught by a graduate of FIDM, to benefit their official FIDM Fashion Club.
Congratulations to the Northside Health Careers High School FIDM Fashion Club! FIDM Fashion Club President Meritxell Trevino shared how her FIDM Fashion Club gives back.
Mission Statement: The Health Careers FIDM Fashion Club focuses on three things: inclusivity, philanthropy, and creativity. We strive to provide our members with a creative and welcoming space to explore fashion, while taking the opportunity to give back to our community.
For this project, the Health Careers FIDM Fashion Club wanted to pair our connection in health care with fashion, by making tie blankets and donating them to the VA Hospital near us. We believe it’s important to give patients a gift during their recovery.
