Blog: Leonie BarrieFashion camp for teens

Leonie Barrie | 2 August 2006

Summer camps, an integral part of American culture, are changing. A new summer camp that began on Monday ditches the cabins, bugs and sing-a-longs and instead rolls out designer clothes and fashion books. And, of course, a desire to learn more about getting ahead in the fashion industry. 

The brainwave of General Growth Properties, Cotton Incorporated and Seventeen Magazine, “Cotton’s Fashion Camp” provides fashion savvy teens with tips on learning how to style fashion, trend forecasting, fashion event marketing, the retail process, and fashion journalism. At the end of the week the campers will even put on a back-to-school fashion show. It’s certainly a one-of-a-kind experience for teens mulling a future career in the fashion industry, and a what a great way to nurture their interest and enthusiasm.
