Have an Unforgettable Fabulous Fashion Experience this Summer, 2024
Join us as we create real clothing (your designs) from start to finish in the Garment District of NYC!
Who we are: Now in our 13th year, The Fashion Class is a fashion-program that teaches teens sewing, draping, marketing and merchandising all throughout the school year and summer. Our camp instructors are graduates of fashion and art programs at some of the best fashion schools in the world, like Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Our fashion camp is for serious fashionistas who want to make their designs and dreams a reality! Perfect for beginners and advanced sewers and those looking to build a portfolio for school admissions.
What we do: Each week will involve sewing in our fully equipped studio, fashion design & illustration, a fabric shopping trip, field trips, and guest speakers to give insight into this fabulous industry. Our teen designers get to choose their own fabric from Mood Fabric Store (featured on Project Runway) on the first day of camp. All fabric and supply costs are included in the camp fee.
Where we are: Our flagship studio is located on the Upper East Side, however (new for 2024) we've partnered with the Hyatt Times Square! This brings our teen campers directly into the garment district and enables us to walk to fabric stores, fashion exhibits, and go on field trips to design studios every day of the week. Our pop-up studio at the Hyatt will be outfitted with the same equipment that we enjoy at our studio; modern sewing machines, sergers, irons, and all supplies needed to make fashion!*
