FashionCampNYC Turns Career Day Upside-Down
Teens Experience “A Day in the Life” of Retail Fashion
New York, N.Y. – October 26, 2015 – On Friday, December 18th thirty teens will live a day in the life of a retail fashion professional -- connecting with major brands and career influencers. Participants will be stylists and pull outfits for a fashion shoot, learn how editors choose web content, find out how designer shoes go from concept to factory to feet, tour a fashion magazine style closet, and see the future of 3D printed fashion…all while blogging and Instagramming their experience, as part of 1-Day Career Camp from FashionCampNYC. The day begins and ends with school, internship, and job advice from fashion professionals and career advisors.
The program is a new offering from FashionCampNYC, a summer retail fashion program for teens and tweens. Francine Della Badia, former CEO of Bonobos and former President of Coach North America says, “We’ve been giving kids an insider glimpse into the world of retail fashion for eight years…we decided to offer a condensed version of the program for older teens and college students who are making important education and career decisions.”
Adds Nancy A. Shenker, the program’s Vice President of Marketing, “We’ve all had those ‘Aha!’ moments when we figure out how to turn our passions into our professions. This program is designed to spark those moments. Unlike career day, kids are actually going out in the field and seeing what people do…not just hearing about it! It’s also a great way for companies to meet potential interns and employees.”
The program costs $699 (with an early-bird discount up until October 31st and discounts for families who sign up for the summer program at the same time). The agenda* for the day is:
·         9am to 10am: Morning Kick-off with Francine Della Badia

theONswitch 's insight:

Every summer, hundreds of tweens and teens flock to FashionCampNYC to learn about how to build a career in fashion retail. This summer, they'll hear from someone close to their own age who has already sold into a major department store chain.

Thirteen year old Isabella Rose Taylor will be leading two sessions on July 18th and July 21st at the camp (which offers four unique sessions), inspiring campers to channel their passions. She’ll share her stories, lessons learned, and advice about the world of retail fashion.

Says Taylor, “I’m thrilled I’ll have a chance to inspire fashion lovers like me – and hopefully their clothes will be on the racks and shelves next summer!”

In addition to Taylor, campers will engage with fashion brand leaders, including experts in journalism, marketing, and technology. Among them are creative innovators Jon Harari and Mike Niemtzow, whose company WindowsWear is a virtual catalog of display windows from some of the world’s most celebrated retailers, including Bergdorf Goodman and Harrods.

Other speakers this summer represent brands such as Coach, StyleHaul, Allison Brod PR, and Damsels in Design.
