Fashion Week Testimonials:

“A comprehensive program which led the girls through the process from concept and design to creating their very own garment. They loved watching their ideas become reality. Amazing how much they experienced in one week!” - Trish Urquidi

“Gabi adores fashion and this camp covered the full spectrum of fashion from design conception to creation to runway modeling their creations. She loved it!” – Katherine Dess

“My daughter loved Fashion Camp. On the last night before the big fashion show she wanted to stay and do more sewing. I finally insisted she leave. The instructors went above and beyond to make this week an experience to remember. Thank you Arts Center Killingworth.” – Renee Smith

“Fashion Camp has opened a whole new world for Leah. She has had the greatest time this week. It has opened her creative sense of fashion. She can’t wait to do it again next year.” - Trish Schoppaul

“Megan has become so interested in sewing, fashion, jewelry design and accessorizing since her first day attending fashion camp that she has brought down all of my material from the attic, and is interested in putting it all together. She has made may new friends and will cherish these memories forever!” – Colleen Venter
