Signal Snowboards & FIDM

This year has been a great one for the relationship between Signal Snowboards and FIDM / Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

Earlier this year, FIDM collaborated with Signal for FIDM’s DEBUT 2013 Runway Show where Signal selected eleven snowboard designs by FIDM Graphic Design Students to be produced as one-off custom boards. Signal’s own team manager, Joey Yorba and pro boarder Pat Garvin were among the models who donned winter action sports attire designed by FIDM Advanced Fashion Design Student, Kelly Knaggs for the runway.

Be sure to check out our previous article on this awesome collaboration that includes behind the scenes photos and exclusive interviews.
