San Francisco Love! Nick Verreos Special Guest Appearance--FIDM San Francisco 2015 "3 Days of Fashion"
Continuing with my Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM 2015 "3 Days of Fashion" Summer Program Blog Posts, in my last post I blogged about my Special Guest Appearance at FIDM Orange County and now, it's time for FIDM San Francisco!! I always have a BLAST visiting San Francisco and especially the FIDM San Francisco campus. After growing up in Venezuela, my family moved to the S.F. Bay Area. where subsequently I spent about a decade of my life. In other words: I LOVE me some San Francisco!
Here is my BLOG POST of my Special Guest Appearance in San Francisco--Hope you enjoy and if you attended...I hope you had a WONDERFUL time!
Union Square San Francisco
A Fab Welcome: Hotel Monaco San Francisco
FIDM San Francisco is PERFECTLY located in the "heart" of San Francisco and it's fabulous Fashion Mecca; Union Square. After flying in from Los Angeles and settling in my WONDERFUL Hotel Monaco Kimpton accommodations, I quickly made my way to the campus for the final day of "3 Days of Fashion"...

Guest Appearance: As you can see from the above pics, I was SOOOO excited to be at the FIDM San Francisco 2015 "3 Days of Fashion". Oh, and in case you are wondering...yes, I wore THAT outfit on the plane ride from LAX-SFO. Needless to say, I was getting some looks and LOTS of people saying they liked my outfit! Even the TSA people were complimenting me. And you know they NEVER say anything, accept "We need to scan your bag one more time!!!"
Part of my Appearance involved showing some of my designs including gowns from my high-end NIKOLAKI Collection as well as my NV Nick Verreos line Exclusive to EVINE Live TV Shopping Network--San Francisco-based model Rachael Sitz is my Go-to Gal in SF and I was happy to have her model my designs for the FIDM San Francisco "3 Days of Fashion" students/attendees:
