I’m Courtney Alexander, the Founder of Team Fashion Camp, now on our 5th year as the premier fashion camp on the Westside. I’m a graduate of Parsons School of Design, both the New York and Paris locations. I’ve worked in fashion in New York, Paris, Milan, and Los Angeles as a designer, business owner, stylist, and costumer! But most importantly, I am a Mom. After living in Europe for 5 years, I launched clothing companies in the US and sold to boutiques across the country. I designed and made stage clothes for celebrities such as Cher, Elton John, the Scorpions, and ZZ Top and I worked for CBS, ABC, and Disney…after all this amazing experience, I realized my true passion is inspiring young designers to pursue their dreams by teaching them the behind the scenes of what it takes to make it in the fashion industry.
As a mom of two, it has taught me to pay it forward to our future designers. I love mentoring kids and sharing my vast experience in the fashion world -- teaching them about sketching, illustrating, styling, branding, and bringing their designs to life! Through Team Fashion Camp, young creatives get to explore the many career options in fashion.
