Fashion Summer Camp

fashion summer courses - image

Our fashion summer program is specifically designed with the high school student in mind. In this two-week long ‘My Fashion Experience’ course, students will learn all about the fashion industry and the various roles involved; how collections are designed; how to manage research and creativity; and how the fashion system operates holistically, all of which culminates in a mini-runway show.

The fashion design summer camp begins with the understanding of the fashion system, the different capitals, markets, and the various roles. Students will then move on to fashion design, where they will learn how to develop their own personal sketching language, as well as the basics of fashion figure drawing, illustration techniques and collection structure.

With fashion styling they learn about the image of the body and various body shapes; an insight into magazines, photoshoots and trend forecasting. Then, students will learn how to channel their creativity through hands-on workshops such as draping with fabric on a mannequin, textile exploration and upcycling existing garments. In fashion business they will explore the digital side of the industry and how new technology, social media and Gen Z is influencing the industry.

By the end of our Miami summer camp the student will produce a ‘mini runway project’ and should have the beginnings of an understanding for the work of a fashion designer and other roles in this diverse and vibrant industry as well as an introduction to Istituto Marangoni Miami.

*As agreed in the Academic contract, Istituto Marangoni Miami has the right to implement reasonable changes to the structure, contents and resources by aiming at continuous improvement of the course.

Studying at Marangoni was a dream for me, and being able to make it a reality was amazing. I want to study fashion design in college, and this program helped me realize how I can use my creativity to create very inspiring and cool things.
