Please call us before stopping by, our hours fluctuate with the school schedule.
The Fashion Class is a creative environment for children as young as 5, teens up to 17 and adults of all ages to learn the fun of designing and sewing their own clothing.
In 2009 The Fashion Class founder Kerri Q. began teaching an after-school fashion program offered to private New York city schools. After a popular first year and even more popular second (with new schools added to our list each term) The Fashion Class was officially born (2010) and began offering classes outside of schools so that any child in the NYC area could learn to sew and design.
In 2014 our second full time studio in Merrick NY opened for the fashionistas of Long Island.
We now offer classes in Manhattan, Long Island and Brooklyn for children and teenagers ages 6 through 18 years. Our locations cover midtown and the garment center (21 W 39th St), the Upper East Side (1412 2nd Ave), Merrick Long Island (1812 Merrick Road) and Carroll Gardens Brooklyn (128 Union St).
Our classes include fashion drawing, art + design, craft making, accessory design, sewing and fashion design. All supplies are included in our fee and all students keep their creations. Our sessions end with a fashion show (on our exclusive light up runway) where our students model and showcase the clothing, accessories, and artwork they’ve created throughout the semester!
We offer class options 7 days per week in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Summer is dedicated to our full day 2-week summer fashion camp program where students sew, design, and visit real fashion design showrooms. We've visited Austin Scarlett from Project Runway, Marchesa, Alice + Olivia, Anne Klein, Marie Claire Magazine, and so much more!
We also offer one day through week long fashion camps over school break holidays such as Columbus Day, Presidents Day, winter break, and Spring Break school holidays.
Finally our Fashion Design Birthday parties are an absolute blast.

Our sewing, fashion design, accessory, illustration and fashion branding/marketing classes for children and teens take place after school and on weekends throughout the school year. We divide our classes up by season offering sewing classes in the fall (Sept – Dec) for 12-13 weeks, winter (Jan – March) for 8-10 weeks and spring (April – June) for 8-10 weeks. Fashion classes typically follow the public school schedule and we are open for private lessons, group events or shorter courses throughout the year. Throughout the summer months we host separate children and teen summer camps in our dedicated sewing studios; Midtown Manhattan and Merrick Long Island. If you don’t see a session that fits your schedule please contact us. We’d be happy to see if we can make it available in the future.
We offer summer fashion design camps, winter break camps, one day school break camps, holiday camp and spring break camp in Manhattan New York and Merrick Long Island. Our camps are full days (in Manhattan 9-5 and in Merrick 10-3) with early drop off and late pick-up available. Our students learn everything from sewing, fashion illustration, accessory design and even fabric science! Each day is broken out into different classes with knowledgeable instructors who work in fashion. In Manhattan field trips to talk with real fashion designers, showroom and museum visit are always on the schedule. Most importantly we play games like “10 minute catwalk” and design challenges to foster creativity while having loads of fun. A fabulous opportunity to spend time with other fashionistas!
Our sewing party packages are perfect for children (ages 5+) and teenagers of all skill levels. Party goers learn to use a sewing machine while they create their project. Our friendly and professional staff (who also teach our regular sewing courses) handles the technical “stuff” so that the party can get started and children have a blast. We provide the decorations, paper goods, goody
