FIDM's Yotam Solomon shows DASANI plant dresses

In celebration of Earth Day, Glee's Matthew Morrison hosted the DASANI Plant Model Fashion Show at the Grove shopping center in Los Angeles, featuring the “plant-based couture” designs of Yotam Solomon. The event celebrated the new DASANI PlantBottle packaging, which is made from thirty percent plant material. AOL's Los Angeles Designer of the Year created seven original concepts for the outdoor fashion show.

The untraditional garments, which were made of both plants and flowers, had a message of sustainability. “It's all about inspiration and it's a pleasure to create designs made out of greenery for today's Earth Day celebration,” Solomon said. “Today's designs were inspired by a great product to make our planet better and I'm proud of the new DASANI PlantBottle.” The L.A.-based designer is known for using environmentally friendly materials in his fashion and footwear collections.

Solomon, a graduate of FIDM's Fashion Design program, has found a tremendous amount of success since graduating from the fashion school in 1997. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Nikki Reed, Monet Mazur, Natalie Coughlin, and Stacy Keibler have worn his designs. Last year, he became a spokesperson for LG and was featured in a commercial with Victoria Beckham.

With four dynamic California campuses, FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising is the premier west coast fashion design college, educating for careers in fashion, graphic design, interior design, and entertainment. FIDM's graduates include renowned fashion designers like Monique Lhuillier, Emmy and Academy Award award-winning costume designers, top fashion industry executives, and entrepreneurs.
