The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and the Academy put three of FIDM’s most talented fashion designers to the test as they compete with what they think the five “Best Actress” nominees and funny man host, Seth MacFarlane should wear on the red carpet.
Beginning Tuesday, February19, viewers will be able to log onto Oscar.com and the official Oscars App for the special six-part video series: “fashion FACE/OFF” as it goes behind the scenes with three of FIDM’s most successful alumnus as they compete to sketch the best red carpet look. FIDM designers: Kevan Hall (Michelle Obama, Renee Zellweger, Debra Messing), Heathyr Lawrence (Avril Lavigne, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyssa Milano) and Dominque Pearl David (Disney, Kanye West, L.A.M.B) join host, fellow FIDM alumni and Project Runway finalist Nick Verreos as they discuss vision, inspiration and ideas for the “Best Actress” nominees as well as Oscar host, Seth MacFarlane’s red carpet look.
The designers’ final sketches will be revealed to viewers at the end of each episode. Fans can go online to facebook.com/The Academy to cast their vote for their favorite designer and help determine who sketched it best.
