Journalism students get talk from Vogue editor

Alexandra SchulmanJournalism students received a talk on life in fashion publications from the editor of British Vogue magazine.

Alexandra Shulman, left, visited Nottingham Trent University to talk to students about her 25 year career at the magazine.

Alexandra met with MA magazine journalism students before taking part in a question and answer session in front of journalism, fashion, communication and photography students.

Led by Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism lecturer Julie Nightingale, the session covered a variety of topics from changes to the journalism industry and the role of the editor, to Alexandra’s decision to leave Vogue and her future plans.

Said Julie: “Alexandra is an icon of both the media and fashion worlds and she was very open in sharing her experiences and thoughts with the students – many of whom collect copies of Vogue.

“Her career so far has been exceptional and we were lucky to hear her fascinating insights into the industry and its future direction.”

Alexandra told students about her knowledge of Nottingham’s lace heritage and the growing number of fashion start-up businesses driven by talent coming out of the university.
