ABOUT US

Fashion Camp NYC was founded ten years ago by a major brand fashion executive and a long-time camp director who has decades of experience mentoring young people.

Fashion Camp NYC has evolved over the years to meet the needs of tweens/teens and parents.

But what has remained constant is:

Commitment to education and mentorship, while campers have fun!

Premier speakers and experiences.

We find the best and brightest fashion professionals, who know how to keep teens and tweens engaged.

We also plan trips, visits to companies, and experiences that campers can only get in New York – and only from Fashion Camp NYC.

Safety and inclusion.

Our leaders have a passion for fashion AND experience working with kids.

Our senior management are all parents!
