Check Out New Pics and Vote for FIDM’s “Canstruction” Ballgown



Last year, FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Graphic Design Students created a larger-than-life sized high heel, and this year, an evening gown. No, these students aren’t confused about their course of study. These designs are created out of canned food as part of an international charity project called Canstruction during which various organizations compete and create giant structures made out of healthy canned goods that is later donated to food banks.

For this year’s competition, students from FIDM’s Orange County campus gathered on September 3 to make Graphic Design student Breanne Cadabona’s design a reality- a ballgown made entirely out of canned food. FIDM’s ballgown is up against 13 other designs including a miniature-sized “Emerald City” from the film “The Wizard of Oz,” designed by Dougherty + Dougherty Architects, a space shuttle designed by Fluor Corporation and a sea turtle designed by Design and Engineering/Walt Disney Parks & Resorts for awards such as Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Juror’s Favorite, Honorable Mention and Viewer’s Choice.
