Hello Creative Supporters, Sponsors, Mentors + Parents, welcome to our Community Fundraiser!
Fashion With Friday Academy (FWFA), is an independent fashion + entrepreneurship academy that provides experiential & educational workshops for Creative Scholars (ages 9-15) who display a high potential for creative excellence with a deep curiosity for the world of entrepreneurship.
FWFA connects Creative Scholars to their future career goals and interests through engaging workshops and experiential lesson plans that pertain to ownership/entrepreneurship, creative critical thinking, brand building, unconventional fashion design and peer collaboration.
For 8+ years, we've had the opportunity to teach, mentor + support over 100+ Creative Scholars, who are on track to be the next generation of entrepreneurs, creative leaders, thinkers & collaborators in NYC. We've also had the opportunity to do the same, virtually, with out-of-state Creative Scholars who are located in places like California, Georgia, Texas, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and more.
Together we've explored numerous avenues of the fashion industry via experiential workshops including:
Luxury Showroom Workshop: Hermes of Paris Showroom
Photoshoot Production Workshop: Sponsored by Holyrad Studio
Sneaker Business Pitch Workshop: Foot Locker HQ
Hair Me Roar Virtual Workshop: Sponsored by Baby Tress + Nappy Head Club
AirMax Design Workshop: Sponsored by NIKE + MEFeater Magazine
