Condé Nast to open fashion and design college

The new school will not offer undergraduate degrees, but it could in the future.

Are you dreaming of becoming the next big fashion designer? Not everyone is lucky enough to land a spot on “Project Runway” but now you have a back-up plan!

Condé Nast is set to open a fashion college in London next September. The Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design will offer about 300 students the chance to participate in a year-long fashion foundation course sponsored by its Vogue brand, according to the BBC.

“Easy Living” magazine editor Susie Forbes has been named the school’s principal.

“With access to some of the sharpest and most creative minds shaping the fashion, design and interiors industries today, we aim to educate students to the highest level,” said Forbes. “It makes perfect sense for Conde Nast to open its college doors in London, the fashion capital of the world.”

Students will be immersed in courses like the history of fashion and design, the fashion year, print and digital journalism and luxury brand marketing. Magazine “House & Garden” will also collaborate on interior design and decoration courses.

Condé Nast 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.”

The Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design could find itself in competition with London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins, both part of the University of Arts London.

The publisher says fees for the new school will be “in line” with those charged by other institutions.
