Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Hosts Guess Design Challenge




    Paging designers desperate for an opportunity in the industry! This Saturday, the Institute for Fashion Design and Merchandising annual graduates gala will host the Guess Design Challenge, tasking 12 standouts from the third-year class to design a 12-piece denim collection for a chance to work at the company.

    The contestant designers in IFDM's real-life Project Runway come plucked from the advanced-level third-year class and will present their handiwork for Guess chairman and co-founder Maurice Marciano for his consideration.  His consideration will be of paramount importance, we'd imagine, since Marciano's pick will get a design assistant position in women's apparel.
