Entering its 10th year of empowering young people to discover their dreams in the fashion industry, this year's Fashion Camp NYC will take place July 24th - 28th and July 31th - Aug 4th in the Fashion District of NYC. Budding fashionistas from all over the world can get a truly global perspective and learn about all aspects of the industry in the fashion capital of the world.
Fashion Camp NYC is recommended for teens aged 12-18 and is priced at $1,200 per person. Dang, I just miss the cut-off!
The Fashion Camp NYC program offers kids a one-of-a-kind experience that blends access and education with visits to iconic fashion houses, behind the scenes field trips, fashion-focused projects, and trips to iconic NYC landmarks. Campers explore how brands are built and learn about the various aspects and disciplines within the fashion industry – including media (PR, blogging, social media), business (merchandising buying, retail management) styling, fashion technology, and more.

"Fashion Camp NYC exposes campers to the full breadth of the industry beyond just design and the result is a student who is poised for a career and education in fashion,” said Miriam Quart, the camp's Director. “Through classroom education, field trips to top design houses, talks by leading industry insiders and hands-on exercises, campers are really given the behind-the-scenes, full picture of the fashion industry plus an unforgettable experience exploring the fashion capital of the world.”
