29 Jan Year 12 Students Visit Vogue Headquarters!
Year 12 students Ishani and Siobhan were lucky enough to spend the day at Vogue Headquaters in January! Through our partnership with ‘My Big Career’, the students were offered this opportunity to develop their interest in fashion journalism.
Ishani said: ‘Visiting Vogue house was an amazing experience, it really exposed the greatness of fashion and how the industry works. My favourite part was having to think of new ideas that we would want the models to wear and this involved being in a team and collating our ideas onto a mood board and the best team team won a prize (we won)!’
Siobhan described the experience as: ‘The vogue insight day was a great opportunity for me, especially as I don’t have any connection in the fashion industry and finding work experience or any insight into the industry is difficult. I think the highlight of my day had to be meeting the editor-in-chief of Vogue because he is the main person in charge of the magazine, what he says goes. Also being able to ask him questions about his journey, his experience and how he became editor-in-chief gave me motivation and knowledge into how it’s possible to achieve your highest goals. I think more people who don’t have connections should have the chance to know about these opportunities in place for them so they can know they have a choice and a chance to experience a different career route.’
This is the third Insight Day that Chelsea Academy Sixth Formers have enjoyed at Vogue House, and the feedback is always overwhelmingly positive. We are very grateful to ‘My Big Career’ who work with our Sixth Form to give them incredible experiences they will never forget.
