September 13, 2014 | Fashion Island, Newport Beach, CA

Celebrity Cruises, a first time sponsor of the event, challenged a number of students from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) to fabricate a look that was inspired by the cruise’s exotic destination with a touch “Modern Luxury”. Attendees were honored with the presence of the wonderful host, and former FIDM student, the one and only, Nick Verreos (judge on various seasons Project Runway).
