about summer of style

This 6-week fashion and beauty class will teach fashion entrepreneurship, confidence + style. Every Thursday from July 12 - August 16, students ages 8-12 and 13-18 will discover what it’s like behind the scenes of retail, fashion styling and fashion show production at Crabtree Valley Mall. Each hour-long class will consist of lessons on how to build a fun and creative fashion business for retail.  Students will take what they have learned and showcase their product in The Fashion Fair, a fancy and fun presentation where students will showcase their product to be judged by the Crabtree Valley Mall Management.  The winner will be announced at the Pulse FM Back To School Bash Fashion Show on August 16th before the concert.

About Fashion show Finale

The fashion show finale will take place before the Pulse FM Back to School Bash.  Students who participated in the Fashion Fair will model their products with clothing from Belk and receive a quick curl with light lip gloss and blush with Carmen, Carmen! The winners of the Fashion Fair will be announced at the end of the show.  As participants of Summer of Style, students will be able to meet the special guests performing!  Artists from previous years:  Megan Trainor, Daya, Jordan Fisher, Nathan Skyes, Bea Miller, Cody Simpson.  2018 Artist TBA.

How to participate in the Pulse FM Back to School Bash:

  • Create a product during Summer of Style
  • Attend the Fashion Fair with your product

What you will need:

  • Your product. Students will style their product with items from Belk for the fashion show.
  • Be ready to go… fast! Due to the number of participants, each student is asked to have their hair washed for professional hairstyling (so we can skip a step) and their face prepped for makeup. This helps to speed up fashion show production.
  • Shoes and Accessories. Each student will need to wear their own shoes and accessories for the show. 

Lessons

Student may arrive 15 minutes early to class and participate in a fashion starter challenge that may consist of a word search, coloring page or a seek and find activity.

What to bring:

  • A fashion friendly attitude. Miss April loves smiles!
  • A folder to keep all your handouts
  • An item of your choice for the design studio (week 3)
  • Your final product for the Fashion Fair (week 5)
