Teen Fashion Campers will Sew, Design and Style this Summer!

2017 will be our fifth year hosting our Teen Fashion Camp in NYC and our third in Merrick Long Island. The teen camp is a favorite program of ours to plan and run because it’s something all teens who are interested in fashion should experience!

teen-camps-in-Manhattan Teen-Camps-in-Merrick

As a teenager I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer, but I had no idea of the amount of fashion jobs there actually are! From merchandising to buying, styling to technical design – fashion is a vast sea of opportunity. That’s why when I plan our teen summer camps I make sure to include a little entrepreneurship, a bit of styling, lots of design and sewing and some amazing experiences!

Midtown, Manhattan: In Manhattan New York we have a location on W39th Street in the garment center of NYC. Our teen fashion campers in NYC not only learn to sew their own clothes in our loft styled studio, they learn to design their garments from concept to creation. If their design needs a pattern our teachers will show them how to draft a pattern. If the design requires draping we teach campers how to drape on dress forms. Campers all choose all of their own supplies with a trip to Mood Fabrics (all supplies are included in the camp fee). Besides the actual sewing campers learn fashion illustration – an important part of the design process because it helps designers communicate their ideas.

Our campers in NYC also go on the most ahhmazing fashion field trips. My favorite is Marchesa, the red carpet design house founded by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. Although seeing the Marie Claire fashion closet was pretty fabulous too! And then there are the museums – this summer we’ll be taking private car service to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see their new costume institute exhibit featuring technology and fashion. It’s a full, immersive experience and a wonderful way to learn about fashion design this summer in New York.

Merrick, Long Island: Alternatively we have a fashion camp for teens in Nassau County, Long Island too. Our Merrick camp for Teenagers runs out of our large and fully equipped studio on Merrick Road. Teens campers ages 13-17 will use our State-of-the-Art Singer Sewing machines to create their designs. And like the Manhattan program, we offer the full use of our dress forms, pattern-making supplies and more. Mornings are spent learning how to illustrate fashion with lessons on marketing and creating a fashion brand. On Tuesdays the camp will take a private car service into NYC to Mood Fabrics to shop for supplies (included in the camp fee) so that all campers really design their apparel from start to finish!

Our teachers in Manhattan and Merrick are professional designers who specialize in all areas of fashion and hold degrees from FIT, LIM and Parsons. All supplies and transportation costs are included in the camp fee, there are no extra costs (we just ask that campers bring a lunch). Fashion Camp is a great way to spend the summer by learning to design and create!
