The 4-H Fashion Camp was a success, according to County Agent Tonya S. McKenzie! The purpose of the camp was for youth to gain knowledge, independence and increase their skills in the 4-H Fashion Project. It was hosted by Christa Mazzanti (senior fashion merchandising major at Delta State University) and McKenzie (Chicot County FCS/4-H Extension agent). There were a total of 11 fashionistas learning about casual clothing, swimwear/sportswear and trendy/formal wear. Participants completed several activities such as tie-dying shirts, jewelry making, and fashion boards. The next fashion camp will build on these topics and will consist of fashion illustrations, practicing modeling, and learning how to use a sewing machine.
