NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2012) - Define My Style and Isaac Mizrahi New York are partnering to launch the 2012 Summer of Style program for fashion-loving teens and young women.

The six-week Summer of Style program presents participants with the opportunity to learn more about the fashion industry by engaging in structured creative activities and collaborating with others in a mix of virtual, social, and traditional projects. The progressive self-discovery activities will lead toward the creation of the participants' individual fall look. A variety of high-profile fashion professionals will help to lead the programming.

Inspired by the talent of the Define My Style community, this virtual series invites even more young women across the country to participate in programming in the format and at the times that best suit their active and connected lifestyles. With the growing teen interest in fashion, some cities offer weeklong local fashion camps. Summer of Style is free, six times longer and extremely interactive, with all of the resources of the Internet behind it, including access to one of America's top designers, Isaac Mizrahi.

In the tradition of a master class, Isaac Mizrahi himself will serve as Summer of Style's Master of Design, leading the girls through weekly inspirational videos and providing feedback to some lucky participants.
