The Honors group mentored young high school designers and merchandisers to inspire them to produce the requirements needed for entry to the competition, Passion for Fashion. On Saturday December 3rd 2011 graduating high school seniors were invited to participate in an all day event. The students participated in an interactive workshop to help them prepare their scholarship entries. Students have the opportunity to earn a variety of scholarships within a fashion degree program at an Art Institute school, plus a VIP trip to New York City.
