Fashion and Textile Design Forum for Teens
Are you - or do you know of - a teen interested in any of the following...fashion, designing, sewing, sketching, creating? If so, you will not want to miss this five-session forum created just for you!
The 4-H Youth Development Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties is offering this three session/two field-trip program where you will be able to learn about opportunities in the fashion and textile design career area and how individuals currently use those skills in an entrepreneurial manner.
Highlights of this seminar-style forum include: hear from and visit with local designers and small business owners to learn how they are using their interests and skills to make a living (in three evening sessions); attend the 29th Annual Silver Needle Runway & Awards Fashion Show produced by the fashion design and merchandiser students at Marist College; spend a day in NYC visiting SUNY-FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and the New York City Fashion District.
The first session is scheduled for Thursday, January 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM – starting at CCE's Extension Education Center in Hudson. We will travel to Warren Street in Hudson for the 'Queen of Serpents': Myth Interfaces Routine: A Fashion Exhibition Fashion Designer Vilma Mare Explores Contemporary Meanings Through a Lens of Baltic Mythology.
