Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) October 27, 2010
Leading TV network HGTV has selected FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising this fall as the subject for their new docu-design series, Design School. The show follows eight talented FIDM Interior Design Students in the classroom setting as they complete design assignments.
The challenges on the TV show give the students incredible experience needed to prepare them for real-life client situations in their future careers. In just the second episode, the students were tasked with designing custom chairs for famous athletes, including Lamar Odom and Ron Artest of the Los Angeles Lakers and L.A. Galaxy's Chris Klein and Todd Dunivant.
Filmed entirely at the fashion college’s Los Angeles campus, the show features FIDM Instructors and Alumni, as well as industry professionals and other exciting guests. On each episode, the students work in a special FIDM SuperLab™ class. Viewers get an inside look at how the class operates as the instructors give Interior Design assignments to the students and review their presentations. And at the end of each episode, they grade the students’ work.
FIDM Graduate and noted Interior Designer James Saavedra says, “The FIDM SuperLab™ is a unique opportunity to walk a mile in the shoes of a professional designer.”
The show runs weekly through December 3rd and can be seen every Friday at 2:00 p.m. EST/PST, 12:00 p.m. MTN, 1:00 p.m. CST, and 11:00 a.m. for DISH Network and DIRECTV.

FIDM’s graduates include renowned fashion designers like Monique Lhuillier, Emmy® and Academy Award® award-winning costume designers, top fashion industry executives, and entrepreneurs.
