(NEW YORK) Elle's creative director, Joe Zee, has a summer project out East come August, and it's not a shoot for the glossy. Zee, a Hamptons regular, is setting up a two-week camp for aspiring fashionettes with his beau, Rob Younkers, called "Stitched Fashion Camp," according to WWD. Kicking off August 5, the day camp for coeds between the ages of 10 and 14 (anyone want to take a gander at what the gender ratio will likely be?), will consist of six hours a day getting schooled on the industry. Getting crafty with needle and thread, learning visual merchandising, and styling (but of course!) are all in the curriculum.

The price of getting an early start in the fashion fray: $1,850 for the 14-day immersive experience. Thankfully, the program's cost includes all the necessary trimmings for getting schooled in design 101. FIT for the tween crowd? Parsons for the petite set? It's only a matter of time before the opportunity becomes waitlist-only. Expect some equally as fashion-obsessed parents to hang around a bit longer during drop-off to catch Zee in style-skewed counselor mode...
