DESIGN DIVA FASHION CAMP

The Design Diva Camp has been developed with the young fashion designer in mind. Fashion Design is a career that requires an understanding of color, fabric, themes, pattern-making and of course sewing!  This camp  touches on all important aspects of fashion design  specifically developed for the young person.  Participants in this camp will learn foundational principals of design, color theory, begin their fabric library, create mood boards,and learn illustration techniques. And that is just in the first two days of camp! on day three participants will begin to draft their pattern for their unique garment. They will then sew their designs and model them in a show on Friday afternoon. This is an intense week, but one which is great fun! and most  of all, these young designers will have a realistic idea of what it takes to become a fashion designer. This camp is guaranteed to be a camp that is never forgotten! The Design Diva Fashion Camp is suitable for  those with no sewing experience. Due to the popularity of the Design Diva Camp and it’s need for limited enrollments, we have chosen to offer this camp exclusively at academic facilities throughout NY and NJ.
