As fashion week rolls around the world, you might be wondering how you can participate while being in New Jersey.
Fashion week is one of the most exciting events of the year, and while it’s fun to watch on TV, it’s even better if you can pretend you’re there. Luckily, there are plenty of events happening in New Jersey for the duration of fashion week, but also beyond.
If you want to see a real fashion show, head to Destination Fashion on Friday, March 4 at the Heart Ballroom in Newark. This event will showcase local talent and designers, and will also be a celebration of urban culture. The event is hosted by Urban Fashion Exchange and is a great opportunity to support the people of New Jersey.
There are also a handful of fashion workshops happening this spring with Union Recreation in Union, New Jersey, for those interested in fashion design. The course has no requirements in terms of sewing or design abilities and will run over 7 weeks starting March 9. Each participant will have the opportunity to choose their own fabrics, design their own pattern, measure it, pin it, cut it and finally sew it.
If you have kids interested in fashion, this is the perfect opportunity for them to get their toes in the water and experiment with these machines in a safe environment.
It’s also the perfect after-school activity if your child hasn’t yet discovered an activity they love.
The best part about fashion week, after all, is that New York City is just across the water and there are endless events to choose from.
