FashionCampNYC to host “The Fresh Flavors of Fashion”
Jul '13
These are just a few of the “fashion industry finds” that have emerged from FashionCampNYC, a summer program for aspiring retail fashion rock stars.

On Wednesday, July 17th from 5 to 7 p.m. at LIM College (12 East 53rd Street between 5th and Madison Avenue), FashionCampNYC is hosting an open house event called “The Fresh Flavors of Fashion”.

Kate Walz (the designer mentioned above), as well as this year’s coterie of campers will be showcasing their talents and sharing their aspirations with some of the decision-makers of New York’s fashion industry. The event will also feature the latest Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and yogurt flavors. “After all,” says program director Gordon Josey, “even food trends change every season!”

Unlike many other summer and after-school fashion education programs, FashionCampNYC focuses on the retail end of fashion, helping young men and women (ages 12 to 18) understand how to turn their concepts into brands and ultimately into profits.

“So many opportunities exist in the fashion world beyond designing,” says Josey. “Digital journalism, financial management, merchandising and store design and distribution planning…those are all areas within the fashion world that require practical skills as well as a love of fashion. Our program exposes the campers to all of that…and they even get to create their own brand during the one-week program.”

FashionCampNYC 2013 speakers include representatives from Coach, West Elm, Alison Brod PR, Glitter Magazine, and other senior executives from the retail fashion industry.

About FashionCampNYC

FashionCampNYC, currently in its 6th year, is an intensive five-day hands-on camp experience, taught by the experts, designers and retailers written about in the most popular fashion magazines. The program explores the “business” of fashion, teaching teens — ages 12 to 18 — how to turn their passion into a lucrative profession. Educators include fashion executives, designers, product developers, stylists, bloggers, and editors, touching on every aspect of this creative and colorful industry. Campers take home the skills, inspiration and motivation they need to pursue their dreams and make a name for themselves in the fashion industry.
