When Tacee Webb's daughter Palace was turned away from the Rock 'n' Roll Camp for girls due to an overload of applicants, Webb ended up starting a camp of her own, this time catering to one of her daughter's other interests: fashion design. Thus, Fashion Design Camp was born. As I type this, the campers--aged 8-16--are on Day One of their instruction, and over the course of this week they will have developed a portfolio of their designs, including a logo, one of which they will model themselves at a fashion show this Friday alongside established local designers Holly Stalder, Kate Towers, ElizaBeth Rohloff, Luxury Jones, Frocky Jack Morgan, and more, including special guest Jeffrey Sebelia, all working around a fairytale theme. The addition of LA designer Sebelia is a nice segue into the Camp's inaugural session in LA next week, and Tacee hints that other cities have been calling as well. Care to relive Sebelia's Project Runway victory? Have at it:
In the meantime, pick up the tix for Friday's show to see the best of both generations. It's at the Melody Ballroom (615 SE Alder), 7 pm, $3-12.
