Do YOU want to express your creativity and become a trendsetter in the world of fashion?  If so, whether you are a total beginner or have some experience, Fashion Design Camp is for you!

At this stylish summer camp, campers brainstorm ideas, sketch their designs, and construct their projects!  Throughout the week, campers work with a wide range of materials, fabrics, colors, patterns, and styles.  Campers learn how to use and improve their skills on sewing machines, in addition to more manual techniques like measuring, cutting, spacing, hand stitching, and much more! Not only will your design skills improve, but your math skills will too!

Campers design and create (1) a pillow case, (2) a shirt, and (3) a skirt or a pair of shorts.  All projects include NEW design concepts for Summer 2017 with a focus on the aesthetic, functionality, and WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY components on clothing.  For clothing, campers will design and strategize how to implement pockets, compartments, wire passages and more to facilitate storage and use of phones, ipods, earphones and more!  

At the campers option and as part of our focus on sustainability, campers bring in fabric from clothing that no longer fits at home, and use it to create an eclectic and environmentally friendly pillow!  However, please note that all fabric is provided at camp as well.  

Campers also have the option to use our “Revitalization Shoe Station,” where campers can bring a pair of shoes to redesign and glamorize them for a fresh look!

In this hands-on design experience, campers have the chance to learn from exciting and talented instructor(s.) Camp discussions may include exciting topics like the latest trends in fashion, tips and tricks for designing, budgeting for projects, and so much more!

Families are invited to a Friday Fashion Show at 2:45pm where campers show off their final products and discuss the process of creating their work.  Parents, siblings, and grandparents are invited to the show!

All sewing machines and materials are provided.

Please note, campers are welcome to bring in measurements of their tech devices (this is sufficient – height, width, length, weight) or the actual devices themselves, only for the use of designing their projects.  If bringing in actual tech devices, the devices should be labeled with the camper’s name.  As a reminder, the camp is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen property.

Join us for a very exciting and “fashionable” camp experience!

All sewing machines and materials are provided.

Footwear:  Closed-toe shoes/sneakers are required.

All Campers receive:  Lavner Camps t-shirt & campers take home their projects from the week!
