Not only are tween bloggers shaking up the fashion blogosphere, Fashion Camp NYC is going to make sure fashion industry folks will soon have competition from fashionistas who don't even have their high school diplomas yet.

A five-day program based at LIM College in Manhattan, Fashion Camp NYC is a dream-come-true for budding young fashion designers, buyer and bloggers. Unlike other camps where campfire songs and orienteering may be the norm, this couture camp has campers creating their own fashion brands, attending fashion lectures and visiting the likes of Barneys and Saks.

Priced at $1,295, Fashion Camp NYC is the brainchild of Gordon Josey and his wife -- and SVP at Coach -- Fran Della Badia. Campers come from all over the world, including Taiwan, New Zealand and Britain, just to name a few. If you work in the fashion industry and need a reason to step up your game, this is it.
