Fashion Show Producer,
and Wedding Planner!
A resourceful woman can have many careers -- just ask former model, FIDM grad Rebekah Huffman who's already been a Fashion Show Producer, a Stylist, and now a Special Events Coordinator and Wedding Planner.
A Model’s Education
After high school graduation and several courses at a nearby junior college, Rebekah chose the Visual Communications major at FIDM/The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising
. "I could go a lot of places with it. It's a broad major," she explains. Even prior to graduation, via her own networking, Rebekah jump-started her career and began creating visuals for numerous companies.
Career Planning and Placement Center helped her obtain a position at Nordstrom, where she dressed mannequins, worked with managers to rearrange the floor plans, did window displays, and worked with the store's museum cases. While there, another very exciting career direction opened up for her. "They pulled me into the fashion office and I produced and coordinated all the fashion shows for the southwest region. It was very intense, and a great experience!" says Rebekah.
A Model’s Career and more
It was during this time that Rebekah was recruited to be a model. "When I was working at Nordstrom producing the fashion shows for them, I became friends with a lot of the models I was working with, and the agent asked me to join their agency," she remembers. Yet, her chosen career won out.
