LIM College Summer Fashion Lab Programs To Offer High School and College Students Experience in NYC’s Fashion World


New 'Advanced Fashion Lab' will allow visiting college students to take summer classes


girl in New York City taxiLIM College's 2013 Summer Fashion Lab for high school students and new Advanced Fashion Lab are now accepting registrations.

This summer marks the first time the Advanced Fashion Lab program will be offered. It is designed for visiting college students currently enrolled in a degree-granting program and upper-level high school students who have previously taken the LIM College Fashion Lab program for high school students.

Fashion Lab for high school students, which is open to students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school in the fall of 2013, is a series of classes that offer participants the opportunity to begin to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to pursue careers in the fashion industry. Advanced Fashion Lab builds upon LIM College’s popular Fashion Lab program by delving deeper into the worlds of fashion buying, styling, fashion magazines and more.

This year’s Summer Fashion Lab courses include: Art’s Influence on Fashion, Fashion Field Trips, Celebrity Styling, Event Planning, Fashion Buying, Fashion Communications, Fashion Magazines, Fashion Photography, Fashion Show Production, Marketing Communications, Career Development Skills, Social Media & Mobile Marketing, Urban Fashion, The Vintage Clothing Industry, and Visual Merchandising & Display.

Advanced Fashion Lab courses include: Private Label and Specification Buying, Web Product Data Management, Retail Store Events, and advanced versions of courses in celebrity styling, fashion magazines and fashion buying. Most courses in both programs carry one college credit.

This year, LIM College expects to enroll a record-setting 300+ students in its Summer Fashion Lab and Advanced Fashion Lab programs.

Both LIM College’s 2013 Summer Fashion Lab and Advanced Fashion Lab programs will run for four successive weeks, from July 8 - August 2. Most classes are one week long, with the choice of a morning session (8:45 am–12:30 pm) or an afternoon session (1:30 – 5:15 pm). Typically, LIM College Summer Fashion Lab students register for two or more courses each. 

Last year, students came from as far away as Poland, Mexico, Brazil, California, Oregon, Texas and Montana to participate in the Summer Fashion Lab program.

LIM College offers housing to students in both programs at the 1760 Residence Hall on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. For more information or to register, email fashionlab@limcollege.edu or go to: www.limcollege.edu/summerfashionlab
