Claudia Chioda graduated from FIDM with a Fashion Design degree in 2006, and is currently working as a designer at one of the best and biggest intimate apparel companies in Los Angeles, Honeydew Intimates.
"FIDM gave me a foundation of skills to take into the real world. Simply put, without them I would not have been prepared. Without the technical and computer program classes, I would have been at a huge disadvantage. It is absolutely necessary to have technical, Illustrator/Photoshop, sketching, and color knowledge to get a job. FIDM also instills a fantastic work ethic. Trust me, you’ll need it to be successful in this industry."
