Mark Griffin, an interior designer who appeared on the docu-design series Design School, and is a graduate of FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, will appear on the new HGTV show, The White Room Challenge, on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 9pm/8c.

Mark Griffin, who is a graduate of the Interior Design Program at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, is set to star in his own episode of the new HGTV show, The White Room Challenge. The challenge is to design 10-foot by 10-foot white rooms using outrageous elements such as candies or more than 1,500 flowers. Mark’s episode will air on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 9pm/8c.

This is not his first foray into television. While still a student at FIDM, Mark was part of Design School, a docu-design series on HGTV that followed the hopes and designer dreams of elite design students in the SuperLab group at FIDM. Mark’s talents earned him one of FIDM’s Designer of Tomorrow scholarships and he won Elle Décor’s “Legends of Hollywood” set design competition.

The White Room Challenge is a chance for the designer to be original, eccentric, and outrageous. The show, which is hosted by David Bromstad and features a judging panel led by Jamie Durie, features up-and-coming and established designers from around the U.S. competing for a grand prize of $10,000 in cash. The series airs Tuesdays at 9pm/8c.

FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising is a co-educational, specialized, private college dedicated to educating students for the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, and Entertainment industries. Known as a one of the top fashion design schools, FIDM is also a leading graphic design school and digital media college. Visit for more information.
