We are inviting teens aged 13-17—from Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties and who are passionate about fashion design and creation—to apply for Dress Code: A Teen Fashion Club at Make-It Springfield.
Applications are due on Monday, May 22nd by 5pm.
Mentoring and support with filling out your application is available in-person or by Zoom with our executive director, Roberta Wilmore, between May 8 and May 22. To schedule, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More about the club:
Each youth participant in this club will receive a high level of professional development and mentorship from a diverse variety of professionals in the field. Over the course of the Club (June-October), each cohort member will be supported in creating one or more pieces of clothing/accessories in their chosen style and have the opportunity to participate in a Works In Progress event during New England Fashion Week in Fall 2023. We meet as a group and also offer 1:1 support that will focus on creative process and feedback, learning about business and future educational pathways. We will also be providing the opportunity to receive support and tools beyond the program such as equipment, mentorship, and supplies as needed.
