Our boutique children's fashion design summer camp in NYC is a wonderful way to spend summer vacation. Students ages 6-12 years old will learn to sew using a sewing machine, illustrate and design fashion and have a blast with up to 12 other fashion-forward kids in our Upper East Side studio located at 307 East 84th Street.
Camp runs weekly starting June 13th through Sept 2nd 2022 from 10am-3pm! Extended day with extra creative classes (jewelry making and room decor projects) available. Projects and lessons will change each week so campers can continue throughout the summer.
Please check out dates, times, and COVID-19 SAFETY INFORMATION under the details tab above.
To keep young minds engaged, each camp day will feature unique design and fashion lessons including the highlight of the day; sewing. During sewing class, fashion campers learn to use a sewing machine (complete with finger guards and speed control!) plus layout a pattern, measure and cut fabric. By the end of the week, campers will have created garments or accessories that they can take home and wear!
Plus, we go beyond the sewing machine with a big-picture introduction to fashion. Campers learn sewing skills along with illustration, merchandising, fashion history, the business of fashion, entrepreneurship, and some DIY! All lessons are age appropriate, easy to understand and hands on.
Our specialized curriculum—developed in partnership with pattern makers, illustrators, and educators over ten years—is designed around what works best for kids, including:
Limited Class Size“Boutique” limited camp sizes of 12 students and 2 teachers ensure every kid gets the attention they deserve.
Exceptional TeachersOur teachers combine real-world experience with specialized training and bring kindness and empathy along with energy and enthusiasm to the classroom.
Safety FirstCovered blades on fabric scissors along with finger guards and speed control on all sewing machines ensure little hands are safe!
See your child build confidence and experience the pride that comes from learning a new, creative skill with The Fashion Class!
