The Texas Tech University College of Human Sciences is hosting its first ever sessions of fashion camp on campus.

The first session began Monday (June 16) and continues through Friday (June 20); the second session is scheduled for June 23-June 27.

Fashion Camp 2008 – Insight into Style, hosted by the retailing program, gives young adults the opportunity to learn more about and experience the fashion industry. Campers range from 7th grade to seniors in high school.

"Fashion Camp is an opportunity for our young aspiring designers to gain insight into the industry of fashion," said Linda Hoover, dean of the College of Human Sciences. "This is another great opportunity for our college to share some style expertise with the community."

Throughout the week campers will learn how to produce and organize a fashion show, which they will present to family and friends on the last evening of camp. Other activities will teach them about fashion design, the color spectrum, fashion history, photo shoot preparation, toga making, jewelry design, visual merchandising and forecasting of fashion trends.
