Joe Zee to Teach at Fashion Camp
Elle's creative director, Joe Zee, can now add camp counselor to his résumé - well fashion camp. Zee and his partner, Rob Younkers, currently an instructor at Parsons the New School for Design, will be teaching a two-week crash course in design and garment construction. The camp, called Stitched Fashion Camp, starts August 5th and is for boys and girls, ages 10 to 14.
So what will these budding designers do? The fashion tweens will spend six hours in a studio in East Hampton, N.Y., learning illustration, design, construction, styling and visual merchandising. The website claims, "They will sew a skirt or shorts, rework a T- shirt, and create a look from their illustrated collection." Now I bet you're wondering what does a camp like this cost? $1850 including supplies.
