It was a unique opportunity that allowed me to become immersed in the fashion media sphere. My favorite experience was getting career advice from Anna Wintour in her office in New York.
Life at Condé Nast College is one to remember. You are a part of a family and get to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. While at the College, you are connected to the fashion industry in such a unique way. You are given amazing opportunities to intern at companies you could only dream of working at and get to hear firsthand experiences from individuals who you aspire to be like.
Conde Nast College has provided me with a fantastic opportunity to learn and develop in an industry I love. Their encouragement, inspiration, and teaching have prepared me for my future and have inspired me to pursue significantly more ambitious goals than when I started.
When I set my sights on a career in fashion, Condé Nast College welcomed me with open arms. By giving me the space to build my own extensive, detailed, industry-level projects, I was able to take the reins of my creative growth. Through many hours spent assisting on photoshoots to finalizing prepress and image research for magazines, my time in this cohort was not only invaluable to developing a strong skill set, but also to establishing confidence in myself as a formidable, creative professional. I graduated with the knowledge that I can take on any role in the fashion world because I have the foundation of skills on which to construct my career and the lifelong friendships and connections to keep me going through it.
The curriculum at Condé Nast College is as academically rigorous as it is industry-facing. People from different sectors of the business visit the college on a weekly basis so that students are up to date on the most pressing matters within the field. As someone who didn’t study fashion before, I find these lectures to be an invaluable resource. Especially since the courses are largely self-directed; allowing us to explore topics and cultivate knowledge in a specialized line of work. The location is great too, it’s like you’re right where everything is happening.
