|WHAT IS STITCHED?|
Aspiring young designers from the ages of 7 to 17 will get a sneak peak into the fashion industry with the ultimate “behind the seams” experience by enrolling in STITCHED FASHION CAMP! Created to encourage and develop adolescents love of fashion with actual hands-on experience, our goal at STITCHED is to nurture creativity and passion as we introduce our budding designers to the exciting world of fashion. They will pursue their dreams at our two week long summer day camp!
This summer, which marks our fourth year, from July 25th to August 5th, Co-Founders Rob Younkers and Joe Zee invite young innovators to join them at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York, to learn about fashion design and styling from top industry experts, as well as actually designing, executing, and styling their own garments. Fashion’s future stars will get their first glimpse into this creative industry with instruction on everything from illustration and construction to styling and visual merchandising. Whether you have taken classes before or this is your first, we will accommodate youth of all skill levels, all you need is a passion for fashion!
Under the guidance of our instructors and industry insiders, participants will be guided through the entire design process from “beginning to hemmed”!
