All NEW Designs for Summer 2018!

Projects include a Handbag, Summer Dress or Vest, and a shoe re-design with LED lights & more!

Design and Construct Clothing & Accessories with Wearable Technology!

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 handbag, (2) a summer dress or vest, and (3) re-design an old pair of shoes equipped with LED lights & more!  All projects include NEW design concepts for Summer 2018 with a focus on the aesthetic, functionality, and WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY.  For handbags and clothing, campers learn how to implement designs that incorporate pockets, compartments, wire passages and more to facilitate the storage of tech favorites like cell phones, iPads®, and earphones!

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! NEW for 2018 is the addition of adding LED Lights to shoes!

In this hands-on design experience, campers have the chance to learn from dynamic and talented instructors. 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!

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.

We can’t wait to see all of the designs our campers will roll out in 2018!

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!
