The MHFA Jr. Fashion Camp will return for its fifth summer this year in New York City!

The Future Of Fashion

“A career in fashion requires more than creativity. It requires etiquette, written communication, and collaboration. These are all important skills future fashion creatives need.” -Misa Hylton

As the recipient of the Gucci Changemakers Grant, we are excited to announce that the Misa Hylton Fashion Academy will offer a free one-week camp for high school students in grades 9 through 12.

The MHFA Junior Fashion Camp with Misa Hylton is a fashion, goal-setting & personal development camp for high school students ages 14 -18. The camp was created to give students early exposure to the power of fashion and the arts.

The camp, led by Misa Hylton, offers 5 fun-filled days of immersive, interactive activities and workshops taught by fashion industry professionals. Campers will learn the fundamentals of style-identity, communication, goal-setting, personal development, and confidence.

The mission of the MHFA junior camp is to build the self-esteem of teens and teach essential life skills necessary to succeed in the fashion industry.

To register, campers must submit a 1-minute video essay to MHFA, telling us about yourself: What are your hobbies and interests that make you a good candidate for this camp? Why would you like to attend the camp? What impact will attending the camp have on your life?

The top 60 submissions will be selected to attend this year’s Junior Fashion Camp.

Remember in your video essay to be creative, have fun and be authentically you!

I get to see what other people have done, vision what I want to do in the future – then modernize what they have done and turn it into my own style.

We get to meet and connect with really cool people in the fashion industry. I look forward to seeing some of those same people in the future, with the hopes of being on the same level as they are now.
