2021 Future Designer of America Program
The Future Designers of America (FDOA) Program is open to boys and girls ages 9 to 15. Designers will have the opportunity to learn basic to intermediate level sewing skills over a three (3) year timeline. The minimal time for the program is one (1) year with a maximum of three (3) years overall in the program. Upon completion of three years, participants will graduate from the program at our annual runway show.
What does it take to get into the program?
Future Designer should have expressed great interest in the creative desire to make things. It could be clothing, shoes, or any type of accessories. Maybe they are cutting out paper and creating a skirt, shirt or the like. Or maybe they are drawing and illustrating fashion apparel. These are indicators of interest in our sewing, design and image program.
