About Us

The Fashion Class began in 2010 as a summer camp in Brooklyn NY. Today, The Fashion Class is in five locations throughout New York City in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Nassau County Long Island.

We offer 8-12 week courses in fashion design, sewing, illustration and creativity. Courses run during the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons for children starting at age 6 through age 17. Classes are divided by age group.Our fashion design summer camp runs throughout July and August plus we have a variety of camps and activities during the school holidays and breaks.At the end of each class we hold a free fashion show for parents and friends. Our students walk our exclusive light-up runway in their own creations. It’s a fun and fabulous way to see what we’ve been working on.

Students work on simple sewing machines that are easy to use and equipped with needle guards for extra safety. All supplies are included in our fee and all students keep their creations.

Our amazing instructors work in the fashion industry as apparel, costume, and accessory designers as well as fashion illustrators whose clients range from Sesame Street to Target! Our student/teacher ratio is always 5:1.

The Fashion Class focuses on fun and fabulous fashion themed classes where students learn to sew in a creative environment. While we do “assign” new projects every two weeks our up-and-coming fashionistas get to choose from a variety of fabric, put their own personal style on each garment and embellish to their hearts desire!
