Printed Nick: Tim Gunn and Nick Verreos on Episode 12 "Superhero Fashion" Project Runway: Under The Gunn

Time for my "Nick's Looks" STYLE BLOG of what I wore during this past episode of Lifetime's Project Runway: Under The Gunn. In case you missed my "Nick's Take"/Inside Dish blog, you can click HERE for that. This past episode was all about designing a look inspired by a Marvel Comics Superhero.

And yes, in case you might have forgotten Tim Gunn was featured in a special edition of Marvel Comics with "Iron Man" about five years ago back in 2009.

Last week, I went to San Diego to do some morning TV segments promoting the "Fashion With A Passion" Make-A-Wish San Diego Fundraiser that was held over the weekend at the fabulous Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising San Diego campus overlooking Petco Park in Downtown San Diego. As the Official Spokesperson--and Alumni--of FIDM, I was honored to get the word out to all of San Diego about this wonderful fundraiser which FIDM San Diego has been associated with for five years in a row!

 Marvel Style: Mentors Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos with designers Sam Donovan, Asha Daniels, Shan Keith and Oscar Gracia-Lopez, at Meldown Comics and Collectibles store, Hollywood CA--Project Runway: Under The Gunn "Superhero Fashion" Episode

This past week's episode of Lifetime Network's "Project Runway: Under the Gunn"--was the penultimate challenge of the season-- The designers were to create a look inspired by a Marvel Comics Superhero. All three mentors are still on the show and only four designers are left--Mondo Guerra has 2, Anya Ayoung-Chee has one...

Oscar and Nick: Oscar Garcia-Lopez and Nick Verreos--Meldown Comics and Collectibles store, Hollywood CA--Project Runway: Under The Gunn "Superhero Fashion" Episode

And I also only have one designer, Oscar Garcia-Lopez. For the introduction of this "Supehero Fashion" challenge, we all met up very early in the morning at Meldown Comics and Collectibles store in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. The reason we were there so early is obvious: the producers wanted to film before the store opened and that early in the morning, curious people walking Sunset Blvd. would not be milling around wondering why Tim Gunn is in the store? (Hello!)

Nick Verres and Oscar Garcia-Lopez--Episode 11 "The Benefit of Fashion" Challenge "Project Runway: Under The Gunn"

In this past week's episode of Lifetime's "Project Runway: Under The Gunn", it was the "Real Woman" Benefit Cosmetics Challenge. You can read my "Nick's Take"/Inside Dish on the episode HERE --yes, Oscar should have won and Tim Gunn is "trippin" (for a lack of a better word) in RE: to saying I was there Creative Director and that I FORCED the "Pageant Gown" on Dani Vierra, Oscar's client...but that's neither here nor there. This post is about my "Mentor Style":

Natalia Fedner and Nick Verreos--FIDM Screening Party for Project Runway: Under The Gunn, Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Los Angeles

Last Thursday, I had the honor to host a very special Screening Party to view the TV show that I am a part of, "Project Runway: Under The Gunn". The Screening Party was held at my Alma Mater and college of which I am the Spokesperson, FIDM/The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Downtown Los Angeles. In the days leading up to the screening, I got an email from one of my dear designers from the show and part of "Team Nick", Natalia Fedner.

She sent me a very sweet email, telling me how wonderful it was to have been mentored by me and how thankful she was for my support during the filming. I was very touched and subsequently, I asked her if she would be so kind as to join me as a "Special Guest" at this "Project Runway: Under The Gunn" FIDM Screening Party. She said "Yes! Of course!". Yeayyy!
