Fashion Summer Camps in New Jersey


Our students [Fashion Designers] learn to sew starting with the sketch (croquis), technical details, choosing and rendering the fabric, learning the proper way to make a pattern, including measuring each other, understanding the importance of this process and the fit of the garment.

They practice how to pin and learn to sew using a sewing machine.  Then, they sew the entire garment including the final fitting. Finally, on the last day of our camp, we hold our Fashion Show. During our fashion summer camp weeks, we add fashion challenges (e.g. Newspaper Challenges, Trash Bag Challenges), for our designers to explore their inner-most fashion creativity, taste and skills. Our designers team up with other designers for this quite unique and fun summer camp experience. No sewing experience necessary. All fabric, supplies and use of the sewing machines are included.

Our NJ summer camps always end with a fun event, then the finale is our spectacular fashion show!!!

Choose from 3 options: 9-12:00, 9-2pm & 9-4pm. What’s the difference between these 3 summer camp schedules?

9-12:00 These designers will design the project and learn about the weeks special-focused theme; not including fashion challenges and added accessories. We’re always busy learning, having fun and meeting new friends.

9-2:00 These designers will design the project and learn about the weeks special-focused theme; including fashion challenges (e.g. Newspaper Challenges, Trash Bag Challenges). We’re always busy learning, having fun and meeting new friends.

9-4:00 These designers will design the project and learn about the weeks special-focused theme; including fashion challenges (e.g. Newspaper Challenges, Trash Bag Challenges). From 2-4:00, they’ll work on an extra accessory or a textile design, depending on that week's theme. We may even have time to watch a Project Runway episode. We’re always busy learning, having fun and meeting new friends.
