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 field trip to the garment district to the final runway show, our fashionistas or fashionistos will bring their wildest ideas to life!
