“My daughter went to FashionCampNYC at 16. She’s now 23, living in Paris, and working at a high-end fashion house (after earning fashion and international business degrees at FIT and American University of Paris).”
“FashionCampNYC was my first real step toward the career I always wanted…the highlight was making wonderful friendships and we are still supporting each other today!”
“FashionCampNYC introduced me to career possibilities I’d never thought of! It was totally worth traveling to New York City all the way from Toronto!”
“FashionCampNYC gave us our first glimpse of our daughter’s future. Then an Ohio pre-teen, she’s now a creative, independent college theater student in Manhattan!”
“My daughter enjoyed working with fellow Campers to create a line of coats…She’s now studying Design and Merchandising at Drexel University.”
“Hearing from two bloggers at FashionCampNYC four years ago inspired me to start my own fashion blog…I’m now a freshman at the University of Southern California, studying business and planning on going into the fashion industry!”
“FashionCampNYC helped me realize that the industry isn’t just limited to design; there’s a booming world of marketing, PR, product buying, and blogging. The highlight of my experience was the Met fashion exhibit…I was in complete awe! When I decided to go to camp, I was a reserved student who know that I loved to shop but was curious about what else the fashion world held. FashionCampNYC opened my eyes to my love of writing, taking pictures, and observing people’s style!”
“Now that I’m studying fashion design in college, I can honestly say that FashionCampNYC helped me decide what direction I wanted to take in the education/career aspect of my life. It showed me all different paths and aspects of the industry that I didn’t know about as a 16 year old!”
“The camp is very hands-on and informational while still being super-fun! It’s great for anyone with any interest in fashion design or branding.”
“I gained insight into the fashion world and the Camp showed me what it’s really like to work in the fashion industry. Plus, I met tons of nice people (bloggers, editors, and others) who gave me tips for the future.”
“My daughter was so excited to see what each day had to offer! She loved the experience! I also was extremely impressed with the presentations each girl came up with after spending the week with the counselors and taking trips. I thank you for putting together such a wonderful program and look forward to signing my daughter up next year!”
“I cannot thank you and your staff enough. My daughter had a fantastic time and now knows what other careers are out there in the fashion industry that she didn’t know existed. Thanks again!!!”
“…Transformative and truly impactful. After the regular and advanced sessions, I became so much more aware of all the different possibilities in the fashion industry. I started a blog and founded a company with my brother.”
“FashionCampNYC encourages teens and tweens to find their passion and pursue their dreams. When friends ask for a fashion-related camp referral, I don’t hesitate to recommend Fashion Camp NYC!”

On Friday, Feb 13th I had the opportunity to attend FashionCampNYC’s one-day program for teens, providing an inside look at the fashion industry and how its run, smack in the middle of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week shows. I was also given the chance to blog about my experience.
