Im 15, and in Minneapolis. I cant wait  to take some serious classes in collage, But wnat to take some now. I'm @ that level where I don't even use patterns anymore.
I think an internship would be nice, but where? I don't know of any designers that are actually working and living in Minneapolis. Do you? Just wondering.

You might try contacting the U of M.  I think they have a fashion design program and that the students put on a show every year.  Also check out craigslist.org in Minneapolis there seemed to be a few people looking for people to help with fashion shows. I noticed some fashion design related ads today.  I usually look under gigs-creative or skilled trade/craft but I can't remember exactly where I saw them.
Good Luck

Also there is a fashion design class at powderhorn park.  It starts tomorrow- wed april 5 and goes through may.  If you read this post in time you may want to check it out.  Just check out Minneapolis parks and powderhorn park and it will be under classes for community.

Joy Teiken is a local fashion designer who seems to be having some success in New York and with the fashion magazines.  Her label is Joynoelle.  Her studio and showroom are at 2115 Como Ave. SE in Minneapolis and she is open from 10 to 3 on Saturdays, website www.joynoelle.com

I have no affiliation, but read an article about her in Women's Press last summer and was very impressed that she made it, leaving her day job and doing her design work full time.  Someday, maybe that will be me!


it's all jewelry all the time!

At fifteen, it might be a little difficult to get an internship.(I don't want to burst any bubbles: and more power to ya for trying!)

My suggestion to you is to get involved with community theatre. That's where most of my sewing knowledge came from, and they can always use a hand. Plus, you get to work on everything from Edwardian farthingales to zoot suits. Community theatre folks tend to be a great bunch, a little more appreciative of their volunteers, as opposed to the "go get my coffee internship."

It might not be Parisian fashion design, but it will give you great exposure to designs and fabrics you've never encountered.

Hey! I second the Joynoelle! Her stuff is neat- and her studio is fantastic. I got to work with her once in a fashion show......I was going to suggest hunting down Lyle Jackson- he does all sorts of costuming/fashion design stuff. He used to be costumer for Ballet of the Dolls, and he has also done Children's Theatre productions, Dayton's Xmas show windows......etc. A very inspiring person. He started a company called Tulle and Dye, but I don't know it's whereabouts these days. good luck!

The U of M has a design camp each summer that's just for teens. It takes place in July but registration is open now. Check it out and make sure you let us know if you sign up.
