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!
Last week was the beginning of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM "3 Days of Fashion" Summer Program taking place at all the College's four campuses. Every Summer, FIDM hold the "3 Days of Fashion" program which provides high school students a "window" into having a great career in Fashion Design, Fashion Styling, Marketing, Social Media, Fashion Buying and Merchandising with workshops involving Draping, Concept to Consumer, Creating a Promotional Campaign, Sketching among others.

As the official spokesperson for the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM--and as former student, instructor and Grad, I love making Special Guest appearances at all the four campuses at the end of the "3 Days of Fashion". I talk about what it was like for me to attend FIDM, my life after FIDM and give my own 'Nick Tips" on having a successful career in the Fashion Industry. oh and I also MC a "capsule" Fashion Show of my designs.

This past Friday night was the Opening Ceremonies of the Baku 2015 European Games. This is the inaugural European Games and they are being held in Baku, Azerbaijan from June 12-28th. The European Games is an international multi-sport event for the athletes representing the National Olympic Committees of Europe (NCO's). The Games will feature 6,000 athletes from 50 NCO's competing in 20 sports. Baku Azerbaijan was awarded the right to hold these first European Games by a vote in Rome and they will be held every four years after this year.

Azerbaijan was the only nation bidding to host the inaugural event so it wasn't a difficult decision of who would host it. It has been reported that the president has spent over $10 billion on the games. Oh an in case you didn't know, Azerbaijan is very rich in oil and natural gas (of course it is). And of note, the county--and its government--has been under much scrutiny as of late for press and particularly, human rights violations.
Now, back to the UBER expensive--and VERY OLYMPICS-like 2015 European Games Opening Ceremony:
