Do you have a teen that lives and breathes all things fashion and is between the ages of 12-16? Do you live in the Charlotte area?

Then you are in luck. Or I should say, your teen is in luck.

The amazing Sonya Barnes, founder of the International Fashion Style Academy, has just announced IFSA’s inaugural Summer Fashion Day Camp, scheduled for June 18-22 at the NC Dance Theatre, 210 N. Tryon St. (Have you been to that building? Amazing space on its own, with incredible energy, but I digress …)

The camp, which runs from 8:30a-5:30p daily, is a “full immersion program” Sonya says, including offering campers exposure to a variety of fields in the fashion industry, tours of local boutiques, guest lectures from industry experts and culminates with a fashion photo shoot with a professional photographer.

The camp will introduce your budding fashionista to all aspects of the fashion industry — including designing, styling, modeling, merchandising and more — and help them begin to understand creating their own style profile.

$225 per person. Visit intfashionstyle.com for more information or to register.
