For the second year running, one of our students is doing her placement in New York! Third Year BA (Hons) Fashion Management student Nikola is making the most of her time in the Big Apple by attending some of the shows for New York Fashion Week.

We love this shot from the Mister Triple X show – and what a venue!

Week 3 #myfashionplacement

It’s been a busy week for our third years with lots of placement updates!

Lucie is on a year long placement with Cosmopolitan magazine in Prague! A few months ago, Cosmopolitan started helping Rosa charity, which helps abused women and their children overcome problems. Last week, Lucie and the fashion team went to Fashion Arena Outlet to pick out clothes for the children. This initiative has been so successful that Cosmopolitan are planning to hit the interior decor stores next to provide bed linen and pillows. We think this is a fantastic initiative and look forward to hearing more!

Happy Friday!

MSc Fashion Management placement update

PandoraPlacement

Our Masters students are around mid-way through their placements and here’s a visual update from Jessica, who’s working at Pandora Germany for the next three months, and Sarah, who’s on placement at German cashmere label Henry Christ.

We love Pandora‘s branding, which is strongly influenced by both its Danish roots and Thai designs. From these photos, it’s clear to see that this translates not only to the jewellery, packaging, and retail spaces, but also to their office environment.

HenryChristPlacement

The brand Henry Christ is also a very interesting one, where the founders and designers were part of the German TV production, Fashion Hero. Today, only five years after the foundation of the company, their products are available in 17 countries worldwide! Like Pandora, their strong visual identity is evident in the pictures above where their logo, garments, retail and office space are shown.

Masters placements

Good luck to our Masters students who start their placements this week! Our students have secured a range of exciting opportunities at a variety of different companies, including Hugo Boss, Pandora and All Saints. We can’t wait to hear all about your experiences!
