• NYC: The World of Fashion

      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      New York City

      Join us this March and reach ahead in one of the fashion centers of the world – New York City! Live in the world of fashion as you utilize all NYC has to offer in this truly experiential and engaging educational program. Learn firsthand from some of the titans and up-and-coming fashion entrepreneurs as you visit the famed Greenwich, SOHO, and Chelsea neighbourhoods.

      The World of Fashion course is specially designed to take advantage of all that New York City has to offer.  Design sketches and plan out an eco-fashion garment inspired by a famous NYC neighbourhood – Chinatown, Little Italy, and Central Park to name a few. Mix and mingle with some of the city’s fashion designers as you network and interview these artists to gather the essential information needed for your Executive Summary Assessment. Culminate your experiential learning from the program and create a Social Media Portfolio – utilize YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram for this engaging assignment.

      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.
