Students put 99 Cents Only Stores merchandise on display


CITY OF COMMERCE, Calif. -- 99 Cents Only Stores has teamed up with the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles on a creative promotion involving students and 99 Cents Only merchandise.

FIDM visual design students were put into groups and tasked with creating a one-of-a-kind design using items purchased from 99 Cents Only Stores. Each group selected a theme at random based on the departments in the store. The themes included Household Supplies, Halloween Products, Food Packaging and Party Supplies.

"This visual design challenge presents a unique experience for our visual communications students to apply skills learned within their curriculum to a real world design opportunity. Students will see their design concepts brought to life and showcased in a public venue," says Cynthia Patino, director of FIDM Visual Communications.

Four fashion-inspired designs featuring Food Packaging, Halloween, Household Supplies and Party Supplies were on display at the 99 Cents Only Store in West LA.

The designs were on display at this 99 Cents Only Stores location until Sept. 22. And consumers were encouraged to vote for a favorite design for a chance to win gift cards, event tickets, gift baskets and more.
