Vote for FIDM’s Structure in the Annual Canstruction Charity Project! (Sept. 15 Deadline)

For the third year, Graphic Design Students from FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising’s Orange County campus are participating in Canstruction, an international charity project during which architects, engineers, design students and other organizations compete to build structures out of canned food to benefit food banks around the world.

This year, FIDM’s structure was designed by Graphic Design Student, Juan Duque, called Lending a Hand to Bag Hunger. FIDM’s team built the giant pink and silver handbag using 9,500 cans donated by Crown Prince Seafood. The structure is currently on display outside of the Judith Leiber store at South Coast Plaza in Orange County through September 25.

Until September 15, the public may vote for FIDM’s structure through Canstruction OC’s Facebook Page. Click on “Official – People’s Choice Award Voting” album and “like” FIDM’s Lending a Hand to Bag Hunger photo.

All of the cans will be donated to Orange County food banks after the contest is over.
