Looking for an amazing birthday party that all the parents can’t stop talking about? Our Fashion Design Birthday Parties for girls and boys allow your birthday child and their guests to actually sew real clothing!
Our creative parties for kids feature different make and take projects in the areas of Sewing, Fashion Design or DIY/Crafting. We also have a fabulous Fashion Runway Party complete with styling, hair and makeup and a full-fashion show!
- Sewing birthday parties start at age 6 and up. The birthday girl or boy can choose from different accessory and clothing options: a Twirly Skirt, American Girl Doll Dress, or PJ Pants for example. Our party instructors are the same instructors who teach our classes and regularly teach kids how to sew. Our sewing machines are equipped with speed control (so guests sew slowly) and finger guards. With a bunch of colorful fabric choices and easy projects that are simple to sew, a sewing birthday party is sure to be a blast.
- Our Fashion Design parties focus on non-sewing decorative design projects. Your child can choose for guests to paint their own fab fashion design and decorate a custom frame, color and glitter a take-home tote bag or create a 3D fashion design on a 24″ dress form by using fabric, paper, rhinestones and more! Perfect for large birthday groups and crafty DIY-ers.
- A Runway party at The Fashion Class is a crowd pleaser, as parents stay to watch a real fashion show; produced by the Birthday Girl and friends. We set up our raised or flat runway, stage lights, music and more. Throughout the party duration each guest gets ready for the big show by visiting our make-up, hair styling, clothing, accessory, manicure and foil tattoo stations. Once the “models” are ready the lights go down, the music comes on and each attendee walks the catwalk!
With plenty of party add-ons, fashion themed birthday cakes, included goody bags and decorations a birthday party at The Fashion Class is hands off for mom and dad. We host one party at a time in our large studios located in Manhattan, New York and Merrick, Long Island.

I found the Fashion Class on a desperate search to full fill my daughters dream of a “fashion birthday party “. I found everything I wanted at the Fashion Class. My oldest daughter Isabella had a party there and it was such as success that I had my youngest daughters birthday party at the Fashion Class. I recommend the Fashion Class as a truly magical place to have a birthday party. If your child is interested in the fashion industry this is the place to call.
– Michelle, daughters ages 7 & 10
