Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp helps the style-eyed and artistically inclined craft customized clothes and accessories in an eclectic boutique and studio. Each creative couturier can choose to transform a T-shirt, deck out a dress, alter accessories, and more with an assortment of patches, trim, and lace provided for a full apparel-embellishing session. Needlework whizzes will finish fashionable projects with skillful sewing work, and bedecked beauties can strut stuff, style, and lace-studded sleeves on the in-house fashion runway. Fashion Camp classes make creative parties, social gatherings, and ceremonial closet commemorations for fashionistas and fashionistos of every age. Since the garments are forged from existing fabrics, every creation is eco-friendly and cultivates good-climate karma.
Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp
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.
