Youth Education Programs
The competition is on! Project Fundway is a fashion showdown competition where students compete for scholarships and prizes! This event is to encourage young people to pursue careers in the fashion industry; also to raise awareness for the fashion/art programs. Past participants have shown the DMV has a lot of fashion talent - this year will be know different; see you at the showdown!
All aspiring designers will love this camp! Students learn to sketch and design, how to construct a garment, how to produce a fashion show, and much much more. This camp is for those students eyeing careers in the fashion industry, because they learn how to turn their passion into a lucrative profession.
Fashion after school is not just about playing dress up! These children learn how to sketch and design, construct a garment, model, and accessorize their creations. The program fosters creativity and entrepreneurship in students of all ages interested in fashion. At the end of the program we have a fashion show where students can't wait to showcase their hard work - the show is always cute and entertaining. Fashion after school is meant to help develop the talent in all our little fashionistas!
