Our school day programs connect our interdisciplinary knowledge about fibers, fabrics, and dress to social history and technology.  Dynamic, hands-on, intellectually-rigorous programs help children understand the context and the practice.


These images are from our workshop: Textiles in Colonial America for Fourth Grade.  Aligning with the social studies and history common core curriculum, we teach students about the way Americans lived in the Colonial period and the role textiles played in daily life. 

We are happy to work with educators to adapt our programs to your needs.


The Children's Institute of Fashion Arts
is a 501c3 charitable organization devoted to expansive education in the culture and craft of clothing to connect kids to themselves and their world.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our cause as we build into a full-service, hands-on, children's institute in Manhattan's Garment District.
