Each year Fashion Boot Camp offers new fashion challenges and new design techniques that every designer should have in their bag of tricks! Being green is taking a fashionable front this year with every possible consideration being taken. Fashion Boot Camp is a 5-day clinic featuring Project Runway style challenges intended to prepare aspiring designers for college and their career. The camp is targeted at middle school, high school & college students and even career minded individuals who want to enter the fashion industry. Designers participate in all the fun of being part of the fashion world. Computer Aided Design, Fashion Illustration, and Portfolio development are a few of the useful topics to be covered in the five day intensive. The basics will include Couture 101 hand sewing techniques, Vintage Re-Make, Felting, Millinery, Fashion Trending, Dress Form Use, Proper Body Measurements, Goal Setting, Skin Care, Make Up Application, Fashion Show Production and Runway Intro. Experts from the Fashion industry will enrich the camp by bringing their real life experience to the table. Life skills such as yoga, sustainability, and goal setting will be woven throughout the five days. The week will culminate with a fashion show produced by the designers. They will model an outfit refashioned from a vintage garment the designer chooses on the "FBC buying trip." Designers will have their hair and make-up done professionally as part of the Fashion Boot Camp production.
