The STITCHED Fashion Camp 8 week program will take you through all steps of the design process from gathering inspiration to creation of your designs. This is the ultimate ‘behind the seams’ experience! Participants will create inspiration boards, color and fabric stories, create an inspiration journal, a 6 look illustrated collection, custom printed textiles, and make 2-3 collection pieces. If you have an interest in fashion, love drawing, and want to improve on your sewing skills, this is the program for you!
Basic sewing experience is required. We offer 2.5 hour private sessions for sewing if you are interested in the program but don’t have experience!
This program is for ages 9-13, and for kids who are serious about their passion for clothing and design.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Rob Younkers is a fashion designer, educator, media personality, and former Professor at Parsons School of Design.
He has designed and consulted for Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Patricia Field, Mattel, Vogue Magazine, Elie Tahari, Elle Magazine, and Threadymade. In 2007 he began designing a custom women’s tailored collection under his own label. Rob has been instructing up and coming designers for over fifteen years. He has taught internationally at Istituto Marangoni in Milan and for over 15 years at Parsons, his alma mater, where he began teaching three years after graduation, having been scouted by Tim Gunn. His involvement with a younger generation of designers began in 2006 when he mentored a 14-year-old designer on MTV’s “MADE”. Afterwards, Rob created fashion camps for several art studios in and around New York City. These ventures were the initial spark for what would become STITCHED Fashion Camp, started in 2013.
What sets Rob Younkers apart from others is how he has developed three careers simultaneously, as a designer, fashion personality, and educator. He has a natural ability to connect to future generations of designers of all ages and teaches the skills to take them to the next level. Rob was a cohost/fashion expert on LOGO’s Secret Guide to Fabulous for 3 seasons as well as the LOGO Minute Man. He has appeared as an on-air Style Correspondent for Yahoo Style, E! Television's Who Wore it Better!, ABC’s Fab Life, and Canada’s The Marilyn Denis Show. He is currently based in Los Angeles, California.
