The Imagine IFF Youth Fashion Camp encompasses our mission to secure the future of fashion by introducing youth to the industry and teaching the economics of fashion.

This program serves as a fashion industry simulation platform for students to highly engage and expedite their learning through real-world application. Upon completion, campers will have an understanding of the fashion industry and will be equipped with tools to empower them to take the next steps in pursuing the fashion career they aspire to.

  • Fashion Design
  • Project Management
  • Event Planning

Where will it be hosted?

In respect of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the entire experience will be hosted virtually.
Though the students will not be gathering in person, we are using a multifaceted digital platform that has been proven to provide a highly interactive experience that is effective in creating a deep sense of connection and collaboration. All selected participants must have access to a phone, internet, and computer with a webcam.

There is no cost for the spring break edition of Imagine IFF Youth Fashion Camp.
