FIDM Challenge Deadline Approaching Fast

Don’t miss your chance to win your way to DECA’s International Career Development Conference 2013 and be recognized on stage for your fashion genius!

The FIDM Challenge 2013 deadline is approaching fast! All entries must be submitted by February 8, 2013. Late entries will not be accepted.

The challenge will test your fashion skills and your ability to predict and design the next hottest fashion trend. First, participants must brainstorm the Back to School trend for fall 2013. Then, with a budget of $20, participants create their fashion trend and an outfit that depicts their fashion trend. Lastly, participants must explain why they believe their trend forecast is accurate and have the appropriate supportive research. All this content must be complied into a five-minute YouTube video and submitted for review.

FIDM executives and instructors will evaluate videos based on the following criteria:

  • Resources
  • Trend/look
  • Validation of the trend
  • Creativity
  • Overall look, style and feel of the video presentation

From all the entries three finalists will be selected and the winner’s video will be presented at ICDC 2013 in Anaheim, California. 

Please remember all submissions are due by February 8, 2013! Do not miss this opportunity to showcase your fashion and creativity to some of FIDM’s most valuable members.
