In-Person and Virtual Fashion Career Camps:

Although the visits will be on ZOOM for the virtual camps, they will be of the same quality and content as our in-person visits. We will design each camp to spotlight a wide variety of careers ranging from merchandsiing, media, design, styling, buying, blogging, public relations and production to name a few. Each program will also include interactive activities like a sustainable design project and tips on successful interviewing techniques and appropriate attire to wear. The in-person camp includes an Assortment Planning Seminar to learn more about the buying process and the virtual camp has a Master Class in Beauty with your own personal beauty box. We will end the program with a panel discussion from former students on how they landed internships/jobs and advice they have for making your college choice the right fit for you. Each camp is a week long. The in-person one is 5 full days and the virtual one consists of 18-20 hours. We accept applications on a first come, first served basis.
