Continuing with my FIDM DEBUT 2018 BLOGS--click HERE for my "Educators Luncheon" blog, and HERE for my "FIDM Debut Fashion Club Party" blog--it's time for my "VIP Tent Meet & Greet" Blog! As part of my MC'ing duties of the this year's FIDM Debut Show, I had the opportunity to do very special Meet & Greet's with attendees of the show during both nights (I MC'ed last Thursday and Friday) afterward in my "VIP Tent", right next to The Barker Hangar, where the FIDM Debut Show was being held.

Here are Photo Highlights from both Thursday and Friday's FIDM DEBUT Shows "VIP Tent" Meet & Greet", starting with Day One:

I was SO EXCITED--and humbled--when one of my oldest friends (by "oldest", I mean, how long we have known each other!) Louie Anchondo stopped by my "VIP Tent" to say "Hello", along with Francisco Ojeda. Louie attended MY FIDM Debut show MANY YEARS AGO (!)...yeah, that's HOW LONG I have known this wonderful man! Anyhow...I was so happy to take photos with him--FIDM Debut 2018 "Nick Verreos VIP Tent" Meet & Greet, The Barker Hangar Santa Monica
