Though it won’t yet offer full undergraduate degrees, Condé Nast in the UK is founding a fashion and design college in London. The school’s principal will be Susie Forbes, the current editor of Easy Living and a former deputy editor at British Vogue. When it opens next September, the institution will offer coursework on fashion, decoration, and interior design. The program may also collaborate with as-yet-unnamed accredited universities.
Would you be interested in learning from editors instead of professors? We imagine they’d offer unique insight into the various sides of the design world — but more important, those editor-turned-teachers would be a particularly valuable connection for their students entering the fashion industry.
