Ultimate Fashion Experience
Shop like a fashion designer, Sew like a couturier.
Get ready to be a part of the Ultimate Fashion Experience, one of New York City's most engaging fashion tour experiences available. This experience is presented by The Fashion Class, a midtown Manhattan studio experience where children and teens can learn to sew and design fashion!
Your group can spend an afternoon with The Fashion Class, the entire experience allowing a quick tour of the Garment District, shopping time at Mood Fabrics, and time back in the studio to create a one of a kind garment! The experience was inspired by the hit TV show Project Runway, meant to channel your inner Tim Gunn! 'I wanted to give tourists a real taste of what being a fashion designer in NYC is really like', says Kerri Quigley, Owner of the Fashion Class.
During your walk around the district, you will see the Fashion Walk of Fame, the Big Button, and various showrooms and storefronts. Back at the studio choose from one of the recommended projects (Skater Skirt, Mini or Midi Skirt, Tunic Dress, Wide Leg Pants, Classic Tote), or customize your own project. School groups can learn to machine or hand sew, the large group activities holding a heavy focus on STEM education, presenting retail math, fabric science, entrepreneurship, fashion history and art, and fashion technology.
We’ve hosted everything from pre-school children learning about types of clothing to college students learning to sew! With discounted pricing, day trips to our studio are filled with hands-on educational fun.
