Our Summer 2017 Camp has ended - please check back in January for 2018 information!! In the meantime check out our current teen fashion classes in Merrick

Join The Fashion Class for an Unforgettable Fab Fashion Experience this Summer 2017!

The Fashion Class is a year-round program and facility that teaches teens sewing, draping, marketing and merchandising all throughout the school year and summer. Now in our third year of camp in Merrick Long Island, our professional studio features a sewing room, art room and two bathrooms. Our camp instructors are graduates of fashion and art programs at some of the best fashion schools in the world, like Parsons the New 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.

Join us as we sew, drape, sketch and shop at Mood Designer Fabrics this summer!

Campers can join for 1+ weeks of camp (lessons will not repeat). Each day will involve sewing in our fully equipped studio, fashion design & illustration plus a field trip to shop for fabric. Our teen designers get to choose their own fabric from Mood Fabric Store (featured on Project Runway) on the first day of each week of camp.

On the last day of camp we hold a professional photo shoot featuring the work of our campers! All fabric, trip and supply costs are included in the camp fee.
