Fashion Camp OC!
Budding fashionistas can take part in a summer camp that caters to kids as young as eight up to college age students who are interested in following their fashion dreams.
Fashion Camp OC is currently offered at the OC Mart Mix in Costa Mesa, giving young fashionistas the knowledge and tools needed to tap into their creativity, learn about design and style as well as taking part in a Project Runway-type competition.
It’s also designed to promote self-confidence and hone fashion skills including merchandising, special events, fashion shows, and visual displays. The camp series was founded by Erin Bianchi, a fashion Industry veteran, who is also a part-time fashion instructor at Orange Coast College.
The camps are designed for juniors (ages 8 to 12); teens (ages 13 to 17); and college students (18 plus). Fashion Camp costs $250, plus a $50 material fee.
There are several weeks of Camps available starting today through the week of Aug. 8, which is the advanced week. It’s designed for students who may want to take a second week of camp, so all activities are unique from previous weeks. To register and find out more information, visit fashioncampoc.com.
Fashion Camp OC at The OC Mart Mix is at 3313 Hyland Ave, Costa Mesa.
