Youth explore the world of wardrobes and fashion while learning the essentials of personal appearance, the importance of body image, and how to be a smart buyer.

Aspire to be a fashionista?

Appearances do make a difference! When people look their best, they feel confident and do their best. You can help kids look great and feel great by teaching them the essentials of personal appearance; the importance of body image, clothing designs, fabric facts, how to build a wardrobe and be a smart buyer. You don’t have to know how to sew to be involved in the 4-H clothing and textiles projects!


For more information on how to get involved as a youth or volunteer, contact your county MSU Extension office.
