Sewing Summer Camps 2021

PICK N MIX

Here at Project Fashion we are feeling a serious sugar rush as we announce our new summer camp theme – PICK N MIX! That’s right, think bright mixtures of colour and clashing prints. Breath new life into old clothes by transforming them into something they look forward to wearing every day!! Introducing the SLOW FASHION movement.

Our students will be learning new techniques to upskill themselves, gently guided by our industry Designers, all the while, being encouraged to think outside the box, incorporate sustainability, and be brave with their style choices!

They will be taught to understand juxtaposition in fashion. Using different fabrics, from old clothes or a shirt once worn to a  business meeting, now transforming into a fun summer pinafore dress. By the end of this camp we are sure to have some innovative creations and bold designs to show off! Going from hand me down to runway gown, you can be sure whatever is created will never end up at the back of the wardrobe again!

During this week long camp, students will be taught valuable life skills and hopefully instill some confidence and independence along the way.
