High school girls will experience a 10-day program exploring the behind the scenes of the fashion industry as they learn about trend forecasting, career and internship options, skills building, networking and meeting fashion leaders from around the globe. Girls will visit New York City for five days and spend the other five days at Virginia Commonwealth University exploring their passion for fashion through the Department of Fashion Design and Merchandising. As a bonus, creative solo and team projects developed by the girls will be presented at a showcase at the end of the program.
It’s no secret that the fashion industry has a diversity problem with very few women of color on magazine covers, campaigns, gracing runways or landing leadership roles in the industry. Girls For A Change is breaking barriers and creating opportunities in the world of fashion as we inspire the creative and resourceful fashion leader in your girl through exposure to this hands on fashion-focused summer residency.
