DEBUT Grad Wins 2021 International Design Award for Fashion Design of the Year
Advanced Fashion Design Graduate Kyle Denman showed his New York Fashion Week collection, mul·ti·po·lar—ex·ist·ence, in September 2021. Those designs recently garnered the 2021 International Design Award for Fashion Design of the Year. Kyle, who graduated from FIDM in 2017 as the college’s Outstanding Fashion Design Student and valedictorian, also received three additional prizes for his collection: Gold in Avant-Garde Womenswear; Gold in Haute Couture Womenswear; and Gold in Runway Collections.
Kyle said his FIDM DEBUT experience helped prepare him to show at New York Fashion Week. "It helped me understand how to create a collection in a short amount of time and helped me understand how to weave a story through each garment,” he said. “Most of all, I think DEBUT taught me how to be resilient and confident under pressure.”
