Company Magazine's Fashion Forum

On Wednesday night, Hearst UK’s Company Magazine, held their very first event aimed at students on gaining jobs within the fashion industry.

Held at the Hackney Picture House, around 250 ambitious students and graduates attended the Company Fashion forum where they were given insight into the world of Journalism and PR by some of the industry’s best including Company Magazine editor, Victoria White.

The event contained a presentation full of key information for us students and allowed us the chance to ask their questions to the best. There was also the chance to mingle with the guest speakers, who were all around the venue to chat to privately after the talk, providing them with the rare opportunity to network with some of the magazine industry’s biggest names.   

The rest of the panel was made up of industry insiders from huge brands such as; Oasis, Miss Selfridge and PR company, IPR Fashion, and independent jewelry maker and blogger Fred Butler.

 “All of the girls here tonight are exactly who we hoped to see and who this event was aimed for.” said Company Editor, Victoria White. When asked about the event and why it was put on she explained “Every day we get so many emails from people asking how to get internships or what they should be doing in order to be successful, so we decided to make a night of it".

To the event I wore the new velvet skater skirt from Topshop (which is available in the petite section girls!) along with a burgundy shirt with collar cuffs paired with a sparkly spiked necklace and these ah-maz-ing Zara basic boots, although there's nothing basic about them! 

When we arrived into the theatre on each seat there was a goody bag filled with fabulous freebies

  • The shampoo and conditioner are absolutely amazing and work so well on coloured hair to keep it healthy and leaving it smell delicious. 
  • The body butter from The Body Shop I love, although olive isn't one I'd usually choose, it is actually really really nice and leaves your skin so so smooth! 
  • The Impress fake nails are also amazing, I never usually use fake nails as the ones using glue always ruin my actual nails and the stick-on ones usually fall off but these sticker ones work so well and are incredibly easy to apply.

The rest I am yet to have the chance or opportunity to try out but when I do I shall put a review up on here.

The event appeared to be a huge success with many young girls leaving with a sense of inspiration towards their future after this unique opportunity and so finally I would like to say a HUGE thanks to Company for organising the event and for all being so friendly and also for all the treats!

    I went to the one in London yesterday and it was pretty cool too. Very inspiring and motivating.
