Press Gazette reports that Condé Nast is branching out into the training business launching an upmarket fashion and design college in London. The Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design will welcome students to their first Diploma course in October 2013.
The college is currently advertising two courses, a ten-week course called the Vogue Fashion Certificate and a year-long course called the Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma. The Diploma course will spend the first term teaching students about the wider fashion industry from covering technical aspects such as photography, to the details of the beauty industry and retail business models.
Condé Nast UK managing director Nicholas Coleridge said: “Condé Nast is perfectly placed to enter the world of education.
“The reputation and authority of our brands puts us in a strong position to teach and inspire the fashion and decorating talent of the future. We look forward to becoming the go-to academy for students from Britain and further afield.”
