High fashion isn't just for the rich and famous—it's for anyone who steps inside one of Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp's locations. Even better, those locations offer an opportunity for visitors to be part of the creative process, which is normally reserved for women who can afford custom gowns or cats that are muses for their fashion-designer owners. You can try your hand at breathing new life into old jeans or making a dress from scratch, and the designers here will help turn your vision into a wearable garment. They have everything you need to get started, from a fleet of sewing machines to sparkly embellishments to basic clothing that acts as a blank slate. Beginners, hobbyists, and future Lagerfelds are welcome during open studio hours, and the staff also provides ample instruction during summer camps, birthday parties, and girls' night outs.
