Fashion Denver’s fashion camps are designed to unleash the creativity for kids interested in the fashion world. With special guests from the Colorado fashion community to hands on activities in designing accessories and an outfit, our campers end the day with a walk down the runway in their design that they created.

This one day camp includes the following:

Kindness coordination activity: We have a special guest come in and do a “getting to know you activity” as an icebreaker for the campers to get to make new friends, share goals and fears, and most importantly, understand that fashion, beauty and style is from within and that each of them are beautiful human beings. Maya McDowell, Fashion Denver intern, model, yoga instructor and writer will be leading the Kindness coordination activity in which our campers will write a journal entry and chose a word that will take them throughout the day. We’ll incorporate their word into their outfit that they create!

Sketching / brainstorming / drawing:  Krista Shiner is going to take the campers on an artistic journey sharing her adventures as an artist. Each camper will take the piece of art that they create and add it to the dress that they make. During this time they will also sketch out what their outfit will look like.

Design and create: This is where the campers really have fun as they dive into learning the design process. Typically our campers are between the ages of 5-11 so we do not get into the nitty gritty of sewing but work to recycle / repurpose and an old piece of clothing or create a brand new dresss / shirt with a blank t-shirt. It is so much fun to see what our campers create with the same materials! Jeremy Williard is our lead designer and shares his creativity and inspiration, assisting the campers in turning their idea into reality.

Zach Burke and Owen Wilson will lead the campers on an activity unleash creativity and using recycled bits and bobs to make an accessory.

Model coaching: We believe that models should be all shapes and sizes and that truly beauty is captivated in the uniqueness of all of our campers. Maya McDowell, will bring it full circle with the journal entry and the word and will empower the campers to walk with confidence and pose for the camera.

Hair & makeup: Our campers get pampered when we partner up with salons across the city who bring their creativity and experience to fashion camp. Each of our campers get their hair and makeup done with their creativity and input given to our stylists. For this camp, we’ll feature hair and makeup artist Shanelle Lynn of Henry’s Salon. In the past we’ve worked with Glamour Bar, 3 Little Birds Salon and Flaunt Salon, and independent stylists.

Debut on the runway:  At the end of fashion camp, we roll out our red carpet and campers get to show off their designs that they’ve been working on. It is so much fun to see their creativity and heart on the runway!

Photography: Throughout the day, the amazing Meredith Harris captures the day and the fashion show. All photos are available to view and share after camp is over.

Fashion Camp is a day to remember! With new friendships being formed, creativity exploding through fashion, and confidence coming out as each hour goes by, it truly is a joy to witness. We strongly encourage parents to stay for the fun and participate!

We are so grateful for the volunteers who help to make fashion camp possible! Thank you to Meredith Harris (our photographer), Jeremy Williard (in-house designer), Molli and Kelly for being our adult volunteers overseeing the creativity, and to all of the amazing designers, stylists, models that have been involved over the past few years. We are so grateful!!

Welcome to Fashion Camp!

The purpose of Fashion Denver’s Fashion Camp is to provide adolescents and teenagers with exposure and hands on experience in the fashion world on a local level. Fashion is so much more than what models are wearing on the runway and in magazines, it’s about sharing our own self expression outwardly in what we chose to wear. One of our missions is to encourage adolescents and teenagers to truly be comfortable in who they are and letting their unique style shine.


Our camp is action packed with industry experts providing hands on activities to engage our campers. Experts include but are not limited to; designers, magazine editors, manufacturing companies, boutique owners, salon owners and stylists, models and event producers.

Our world is rapidly changing and fast fashion (fashion often made cheaply and overseas) has become something that is changing our environment. One of our focusses is on sustainability. Each camper will make their own design out of recycled materials. Whether it’s converting Dad’s ol’ baseball jersey to a new dress or making a pair of pants and top out of a pair of Grandpa’s long johns, our campers use their imagination and creativity to design something completely new and fun.

We love seeing process to completion. As camp draws to a close, we celebrate by having each of our campers walk the runway in their design. This is of course after they’ve learned to walk the runway, pose for the camera, and get their hair and makeup done! We also work with a professional photographer to capture the final fashion show and the course of activities throughout the day(s).
