The Fashion Class
Our children’s Fashion Design and Sewing Summer Camp for Kids in NYC is a great way to spend one plus weeks of summer vacation! Campers will learn to sew using a sewing machine, illustrate and design fashion, create personalized accessories and have a blast with fashion-forward kids their age.
Camp is separated into two separate groups according to age; kids 6-8 and tweens 9-12 years old – we also offer a teen camp for older students.
Our kids camp runs 10am-3pm with early drop off and late pick up available. Each day breaks down into three classes with experienced instructors (and our CPR & First Aid certified TFC staffers) who work in the fashion industry. Small class sizes allow each camper to get the attention and tools they need to design and create. We’ll start the morning off with sewing in our large fully equipped sewing studio where we make real, wearable garments (campers will sew three items in one week). After lunch (and some fun fashion games) campers will move on to accessory design and make fabulous jewelry. Our last class of the day is call Art & Design which combines a bit of fashion illustration, painting, working with fabrics and other fun fashion-related lessons.
Our tween summer camp runs from 9am-5pm and combines the best parts of fashion and design. Limited to only 12 campers, our one-of-a-kind “boutique” camp teaches students how to sew, design and style their own garments in one week. We’ll start the morning off with fashion illustration and then take a field trip or have a special guest activity (for example: we visit Mood Fabrics, the FIT museum, learn interactive fashion history, visit designer showrooms and have a real fashion model teach us how to walk the runway!). After lunch we learn how to create our own fashion brands by designing logos and products, then move on to accessory design. Finally it’s time to sew in our large fully equipped sewing studio where we make real, wearable garments (campers will sew three items in one week).
The best part is . . . camp ends with a fashion show for parents and friends! Our fashionistas will show off their sewn garments, fabulous accessories, brands and illustration portfolios on Friday at pick-up (5pm).
Summer Camp runs weekly June 15th to Sept 2nd throughout June July and August. Other fashion camps are offered during school holidays, winter break and spring break.
