IMG explains of its Fashion Camp, "IMG Academy will play host to a unique fashion camp experience in which you will engage in discussions and breakout sessions with leading fashion experts."

Model and body positivity activist Ashley Graham and Marie Claire's Zanna Roberts Rassi are two of the guest talent and speakers booked for the week-long camp, as well as Victoria's Secret Angels Jasmine Tookes and Lily Aldridge.

Graham said in an official statement, "I wish I had access to an opportunity like this when I was younger. It's an amazing way to learn about all that happens behind the scenes across the fashion industry."

The week long schedule is designed to jump start campers' careers in fashion and introduce them to potential fashion and model industry contacts.

Monday features speakers and breakout sessions with IMG models including Graham. Tuesday looks at the industry from the art and commercial lens. On Wednesday, campers discuss brand building with Brooke Wall and styling with Rassi. The end of the week features fashion event production and a "Runway Rave" to wrap up camp on Friday.

Tuition starts at $2,550 for non boarding options. Area hotels offered to campers include the Ritz-Carlton and IMG Lodge. For $2,950, campers can board onsite at IMG Academy's residence hall. Under Armour is one of the premier sponsors of IMG Academy. 

Fashion Camp runs from July 30 through August 5. Boys and girls ages 14 through 18 are eligible. Registration is open now.
