Roman shades offer style and function that even a design student would envy
Nov 1 2010
When they chose to attend fashion design school in the film capital of the world, students at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles probably never thought they might be filmed for a television show.
Design students at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles are the focus of a docu-drama series.
According to HGTV, that's just what happened when the home design channel was searching for some participants in its series, Design School. The docu-design program follows eight students from FIDM as they complete their design assignments in the school's classrooms.
The television show provides specific design challenges for the students that they are likely to encounter when they graduate and are designing for real-life clients. The show, filmed on the fashion college campus, also features instructors and alumni of the school, as well as industry professionals who judge the students' finished work.
The design challenges on the show are similar to those faced by homeowners who try to create decorating schemes that are functional as well as stylish. Roman shades allow home decorators to have a wide range of fabrics in a softer look for a window treatment. Light-filtering roman shades allow natural light to permeate a room without giving up privacy.
