WHAT IS Fashion
“Fashion Tech” is the central program of The Young Belle Project, where at-risk middle and High school girls participate in a 6-month Fashion Technology-based entrepreneurship program. Throughout the program, youth will be engaged in hands-on training in Adobe Suite, Business planning, Marketing & Sales Strategies, along with various tools and equipment to establish and design their own brand and collection which will be showcased during our end of the year fashion showcase.
“Fashion Tech” is a program that aims to liberate the negative perceptions young girls have of themselves and build confident young women by enhancing their interest in fashion and design through creative projects, enhancing their knowledge in technology and active engagement opportunities with professionals in the field.
What makes Fashion Tech unique is that we have pivoted our physical enrichment program to a Virtual platform to continue to provide an partial hands-on experience, through live instruction, Virtual Field Trips and Chat & Grow Sessions with other professionals in the field. Our objective is to expand the mind-frame, Strengthen Self-assurance, and promote involvement from home. We utilize Zoom to engage in small customized groups that aim to meet the needs and goals of every specific member. We are built upon a foundation of young professional women who envision a future of independence and succession in present-day growing generations.
