The Retail Management Program at Texas Tech University is hosting Fashion Camp 2013 for ages 11 to 15. Fashion Camp is dedicated to enhancing each camper’s knowledge of fashion – ranging from lessons and activities on fashion show production and other activities that enhance their individual style and sense of creativity. Campers explore the world of fashion, but at the same time learn many aspects of their own personal style. Each day is beneficial, creative and tons of fun! After a week full of fashion activities, a fashion show will be held in celebration of a job well done for all of the campers’ family and friends. For more information see the Web site below.
