Fashion Design Classes & Sewing Courses for Children & Teens

Our after school sewing class and weekend sewing lessons take place in NYC at our fashion design schools located near Bryant Park & Times Square in Midtown and Yorkville neighborhood on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.

Kids Fashion Classes (ages 6 and up) run for multiple weeks throughout the school year in the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Our sewing students learn to sew real and wearable clothing in our signature Fashion Design and Sewing class over a 5-12 week period. All sewing projects for kids are simple yet teach the basic and intermediate skills needed to learn to sew clothing. 

"Just wanted to thank you for providing a great class for our daughter - she loved every minute of it and I am still astonished by what the kids were able to make. In a city full of classes for kids, you're doing an outstanding job. Classes are amazing. Thank YOU! "
- David, daughter age 9

Teen Fashion Design Classes in NY also run seasonally, after school and on weekends. Teenage design students (ages 13 and up), focus on creativity as they design clothing – learning to sew as they create a garment from concept to creation. Our students in the teen fashion classes typically sketch a fashion design, shop for fabric, learn to create a pattern based on their measurements then cut and sew their original garment, like a true fashion designer!
