Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2008
The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (http://www.fidm.edu), a coeducational, specialized, private college dedicated to educating students for the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, Digital Media, and Entertainment industries, announced today that PromAdvice.com (http://www.promadvice.com), a production of FIDM, has been redesigned, and now offers young men and women more tips and suggestions on preparing for prom and other formal events in 2008.
Users can scroll through an extensive list of helpful advice, featuring reviews from industry experts - designers, hair stylists, makeup artists, wardrobe stylists, event planners - covering the year's latest trends for prom dresses, hairstyles, makeup, accessories, alternative looks, and more. For instance, current articles cover attire inspired by the polished looks of a proper English tea party, a young men's guide to asking a classmate to an upcoming formal, and the opportunity for prom-goers to design their own Couture dress. As an added perk, users can also enter the Fairy Godmother Contest to win a Windsor Prom Dress, jewelry, shoes, a handbag, and personal styling tips from Fashion Club.com
Most importantly on PromAdvice.com, teens have the opportunity to turn their love of all-things-prom into a career in the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, Digital Media, and Entertainment industries. To help, profiles of notable FIDM graduates, like that of celebrity bridal gown designer Monique Lhuillier, are profiled on the website, as well as success stories of other costume designers, shoe designers, and fashion entrepreneurs. In addition, users can apply for one of two scholarships to attend FIDM on PromAdvice.com - each valued at up to $23,000.
