It’s no secret that I would love to study at London College of Fashion, this morning I recieved what I thought would be a prospectus.
Instead it was this
Leafing through the magazine I was very impressed, It is all put together by students and staff and had some great features. I was seriously impressed that all these contributers were students; the layout, styling, features, interviews and photographs all had their own unique slant on them. It was nothing like commercial magazines. They had hard hitting articles about the end of the nuclear family and the rise in cosmetic surgery in order to look “perfect”.
The star interviews were with Lulu Guinness and Lauren Lavern discussing being passionate about your career in fashion. And Caryn Franklin; Clothes Show presenter and of course iconic editor of i-D magazine in the 80’s. Caryn discusses what it was like to start out in fashion in a time before technology and the differences now.
The most of the back half of the magazines was dedicated to fantastic photo shoots all done by the students, they were all awe-inspiring. The very last few pages though were written by regular columnists and again they featured a diverse range of subjects, but this time it felt more accurate to uni students.
