This June, British designer and instructor Louise Hudson will run a brand new fashion camp for the University of South Carolina’s Department of Retailing. Louise, a clothing designer for over 30 years, has sold her collections all over Canada, the United States, Britain and Europe, and she operates her own workshop in Brighton, an area on England’s South Coast.
The USC Fashion Camp, with two sessions held June 6 to 10 and June 12 to 17, will teach sewing skills to middle school and high school students. By the end of the week, students will have dressed themselves from head to toe all by hand. Some of the week’s lessons include wardrobe wisdom: what not to wear; pattern making; artful accessorizing; decorating fashionable flip-flops; and learning how to recycle, re-use and renovate your clothing. Becky Blair from Inspiraled Jewelry and fashion photographer Jason Ayer are just some of the visiting professionals who will give presentations during the week.
On the last day, campers will participate in a fashion show. Students from Paul Mitchell and Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology will do hair and make-up, and campers will model the outfits they created throughout the week.
