The FIDM Productions film crew captured the excitement graduating digital media and graphic design students from FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising earlier this summer who celebrated the accomplishment of earning their degree amongst their peers and families. The video above features FIDM Digital Media Alumna Julie Lee who interviewed other FIDM Grads celebrating at the STAPLES Center in downtown Los Angeles.
The 2014 graduation ceremonies went viral on social media as #FIDMGraduation trended worldwide on Twitter. Congratulatory messages were shared by students, family members, and industry notables like Karen Kane, Juicy Couture founders Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, Project Runway, and the National Retail Federation (NRF) who live-tweeted NRF President Matt Shay’s commencement speech.
