STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) — It’s fashion week for some campers at Mississippi State University.
The first ever fashion camp is being held this week. Nearly a dozen 14-16 year olds are learning how to sharpen their fashion skills.
Campers learn about retail, how to own your own business and of course how to sew.
The camp allows each teen to come up with their own idea and designs.
Campers even have a chance to create their own dress that will later be sent to young girls in Africa.
“Going to put all my efforts into making sure these kids are perfectly capable of having a pretty dress and then get something to wear,” says Jeannie Sanguinetti.
“I heard about this camp from a friend in my school and I’m really interested in owning my own business so I thought that it would really be good to come to Mississippi State University to see their fashion program,” says Elizabeth Keys.
A dinner reception and awards ceremony will be held for the fashion campers at the end of the week.
