FIDM graduate to star in Project Runway season 10
Jul '12
Beatrice Guapo, a graduate of the fashion school FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, is starring on Season 10 of Project Runway on Lifetime. The 28-year-old apparel designer and consultant from Marina del Rey, California says that her strength is knitwear. "I can make various looks from lounge, dress, day, to evening in knits," she says. "I am strong in sketching, pattern-making, and concept." She cites Missoni, Chanel, L'Wren Scott, Proenza Schouler, and Rick Owens as her favorite designers.

Guapo says that she realized her designer potential as a child when she would edit and create dresses and outfits. Busy, on-the-go women who want fashionable yet wearable statement pieces inspire her. “The Angel V top is super easy to wear,” she says of one of her signature pieces. “It’s been one of my best sellers and it never seems to disappoint.” Guapo loves working with crocheted knits and printed jersey and rarely uses zippers.

“Fashion is my life’s inspiration,” she adds. “I love how the right clothes can actually create a positive emotional change. Besides having the emotional connection to fashion, I have the talent and fresh approach for the marketplace.”

Guapo is one of eleven FIDM students and graduates who have been contestants throughout the show's history and Season 6 was filmed at FIDM Los Angeles.
