Summer Fashion Camp.jpg

Summer Fashion Camp at NYSD is a week-long program designed to give those interested a taste of what it’s like to be a fashion design student.

Join us in the heart of the Garment District this summer for a chance to develop real fashion design skills, go on inspiration building field trips, and work in a hands-on fashion studio. You will take classes in fashion drawing, sewing, and patternmaking and walk away with the ability to draw fashion flats and construct simple garments. You’ll also get to take home a wearable skirt designed and constructed by you! 

Summer Fashion Camp is perfect for students that want to see what fashion design is all about or decide if they want to pursue further fashion education. The tools to take the leap into fashion start here.

Our Instructors

Our team of educators are dedicated to nurturing the next generation of designers. Our faculty members for the Fashion Portfolio Prep are faculty at various design schools including Parsons, Pratt, and FIT. They also work in the industry as patternmakers, costume designers, merchandisers, stylists, and fashion designers among many more.  

Our Students

Many of our students come from backgrounds outside of fashion design and do not know where to begin this journey. That’s where we come in. We provide the support and help lead our students to achieving their goals. By the end of the program, they are amazed at how much they’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time.
