Join the fashion fun by making the coolest couture creations in our Minni FashionShop workshop. Fashion Designer Alyssa Tang-Bortnyk will guide little designers and repeat outfit-offenders through the designing process, from mood board making to styling. Workshop participants will explore their tactile talents by using a variety of colorful paper and fabrics while learning about the many elements of design, including color stories and patterns. Expect a (miniature) culminating runway show!
