Fun and Creative Classes for Kids

Young Girl Sewing A Coat On The Sewing Machine

Join Ireland’s Leading Fashion Design Academy for Kids

Project Fashion Academy is run by Professional Designer Paul Alexander & his Fashion Design Team. Unleash your child’s creativity, train them up in a skill that will last a lifetime and get hands on experience in a fun and educational way at our Fashion Design Workshops for children and teenagers.

All the patterns for our projects are developed by our in-house Fashion Designers and pattern-cutting team. Once students have completed all the beginners projects they progress onto intermediate level. At intermediate level they can celebrate the skills they’ve learnt by producing on-trend garments that they can proudly wear themselves.

Each year a new theme is revealed for our students to work on for our celebrity hosted charity fashion show. This year’s theme is ‘The Side walk to Catwalk Collection’ and you can learn more about it here. Students are currently working on their pieces for the next YOUNG DESIGNER OF THE YEAR AWARDS Fashion Show, October 2024.

Since 2014 many of our past students have chosen to progress with their studies and are now attending colleges such as NCAD and Griffith College.

Every student can compete for the:

Young Designer of the Year Award

Project Fashion Classes

They will learn the complete process of Fashion Design. Starting with Creative Thinking, learners will discover the whole thought process of how to transfer ideas onto paper. How to take inspiration from something. Producing a moodboard, documenting their thoughts, colours and textures. Then onto Fashion Drawing, where they draw their final design. With guidance from our experienced tutors, students will be trained in pattern cutting and garment construction. This enables the learner to explore, clarify and express their ideas through each of these stages..

All new learners need to bring fabric for their Beginner’s Projects. Fabric choice is very important, it lets the learner express themselves and allows them to explore. The textures, patterns and colours can inspire ideas and allow creative expression.As the learner becomes more confident you will see this through their fabric choices and in their handling of the fabrics in more complex ways.

Details on Beginner’s link below. Learners working on their collection, please follow Fabric Measurements and Suggestions link, below.
