By Arielle Tipa

The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising sketches out a new perspective for the art-savvy student.

FIDM will be paying a visit to the Babylon Student Center on Tuesday, Nov. 1. Having a renowned reputation in the fields of art, fashion, and design, FIDM hopes to gain potential transfer students at the Ammerman campus.

According to its website, FIDM is, “A specialized, private college dedicated to educating students for the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, and Entertainment Industries.”

 With campuses located in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, FIDM offers a busy, urban atmosphere in the Golden State of California.

Their mission: to create a vision for success. “FIDM’s focused curriculum integrates creative and leadership skills…..Combined with these skills, FIDM graduates value ethical choices, demonstrate an awareness of cultural diversity, communicate effectively, think critically, and possess the knowledge of technology essential to their professions.”

The ninth season of Bravo’s hit series Project Runway was filmed on location at FIDM. The institution is also the alma mater of some of the show’s former contestants, including graduates Serena de Conceicao and Joshua Christensen.

Representatives for the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising will be at the Babylon Student Center from 10am to 1pm, and again from 4pm to 6pm.
