We are pleased to present a special three-day spring break workshop for tweens and teens on fashion! This program is offered in collaboration with local high fashion retailer Kasuri Hudson and local designer ENKYU. The program runs from Monday, April 2 to Wednesday, April 4, from 10-3pm.
Does your child have any interest in fashion? Then, this is the workshop for them. This three-day intensive will cover a brief history of fashion and design, deconstruction and sewing that will culminate in a collaborative fashion collection under the guidance of local designer Enky Baryarsaikan (ENKYU) and Kasuri Creative Director Jonathan Osofsky. Local photographer and fashion merchant Tom Roeschlein (CMYLOOK) will help to create a look book and the pieces will be sold at Kasuri Hudson with proceeds going straight to the young designers themselves.
This program is free and open to the tweens and teens, who must register in advance. Space is limited and registration is on a first come/first serve basis. Lunch is provided. For more information or to sign up email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 518.828.1792 x101, or visit the main desk in the library.
