Start the Summer off with a creative and fun camp!
Fashion Sewing Camp with Fashion First Workshops!
The theme of our week is NOLA New Orleans Fashion Week- Design and create a simple jumpsuit or romper using different trim & sewing techniques. The designers will also explore trending designs, fabrics, and accessories that are inspired by the French dressing up for Mardi Gras or the Jazz festival. The accessory of the week is either decorate and design a parasol or a mask. Fashion Show the last day of camp.
Our students [Fashion Designers] start 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 learn how to pin and 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, if time allows, we add fashion challenges (i.e. Newspaper challenges, trash bag challenges), for our designers to explore their inner most fashion taste and skills. Our designers team up with other designers for this quite unique and fun experience. No sewing experience necessary. All fabric, supplies and use of the sewing machines are included.
