Fashion in NYC
Open to ALL Ontario high school students
Live in the World of Fashion as you explore New York City. Learn firsthand from fashion entrepreneurs as you visit the famed Greenwich, SOHO, and Chelsea neighborhoods. Design an eco-fashion garment inspired by one of the many NYC neighborhoods we will visit.
Mix and mingle with fashion designers as you network and interview these artists to gather the essential information needed for your Executive Summary Assessment. Your evenings will be full of entertainment, because no trip to the Big Apple would be complete without heading to a famous Broadway Show, the legendary Apollo Theatre, and the jazzy Cotton Club.
Here are some of the exciting experiences included in the program.
