FIDM Graduation - Shoes

Because I work on the staff and faculty at FIDM, I work graduation every year at Staples Center.  I'm not a big fan of crowds, so, the 10,000 person event is not my idea of a good time.

But I do LOVE seeing the students walk across stage.  It makes me think how important celebrations are in our lives.  They're markers of accomplishment and recognition of meaningful events.

And FIDM graduation is an especially great opportunity to reflect on how wardrobe and style are such an integral part of these celebrations.  At weddings we have the dress, at FIDM graduation we have the shoes...
