    My CC Summer

    It's been a while but I'm back! In my previous posts, I was quite secretive about what I've been up to..but secrets are being revealed today! In the past month, I was actually working at a fashion camp. That's heard me, a fashion camp! The camp is called CraftyCouture and it is a fashion camp for young girls aged 12-15. It's an amazing summer program where girls get to be creative, explore fashion (and the arts) and meet awesome new friends. The program consists of four different classes, including DIY+design, magazine production, fashion tech and fashion illustration. We also have another period for fashion show production. At the end of each camp session, we finish off with a fashion show in which the girls themselves help to design the set, develop the concept, choose the music and ultimately model projects that they have made down the runway. One of the other cool things about this camp is CCGivesBack. CCGivesBack is basically when girls at the camp create items to put up for a silent auction. All proceeds go to charity, and Because I am a Girl was the chosen charity for this year. Oh how I wish i knew about this camp when I was 12...

    It was such a blessing to be hired as the fashion magazine production specialist. So what is it that I do you ask? Photoshoots, styling, set design, magazine layout, graphic design, art name it! It was a busy month but it was definitely my best job experience ever. The girls at camp were amazing and the other specialists and camp counselors were such sweet and fabulous people. I enjoyed the work that I was doing and it felt great to have my work and ideas appreciated. It felt so good to be able to share my interests with those young girls and to have the opportunity to make a positive impact in their lives. Not to mention my coworkers are the funnest and coolest people in the world 8-)

    Don't be fooled..even though we're only a summer camp, we make exceptionally professional works! :') I'm so proud of my girls, they all look like professional models! It was so sad when camp ended, and I'm currently still suffering from CC Withdrawal syndrome, haha. If only camp was all year round.... :(
