About the school:

Let your kids dive into the world of fashion design with Project Runway alum, Layana Aguilar and her team, at The Fashion Squad School!

As a graduate of FIT, Aguilar has structured unique classes  that not only introduce the basics of sewing, but mimic the real-life experience of Fashion Design. From a sketch to the final runway show, our fashionistas and fashionistos will bring their wildest ideas to life!

the after school program:

**For 5 years old to 12years old. 

Our classes are offered throughout the school year Monday to Friday from 3pm to 5pm / 3:30 to 5:30pm/ 4pm to 6pm.

Every 8 weeks our students work on a project they design from scratch!!

 

In the first class, they get to sketch their creations, have a design consultation with our instructors and choose the type of fabrics and trims they want to use on their garments. 

Then, for the following weeks, our students will learn how to construct their garments and accessories using real sewing tools! They will also enjoy modeling their creations on a "Fashion Photoshoot" !

Every 8 weeks, we have a Fashion show where our students get to showcase their creations to their family and friends. 

We offer pick up from most schools in our neighborhood for

groups of 4 or more students from the same school:

-PS234

-PS 89

-PS 150

-Spruce ST

-Portfolio School
