Some like it haute!
If you would like to learn everything about the world of high fashion short of actually designing clothes, the new Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design has a curriculum that may be a perfect fit.
The principal of the nascent education institution, Susie Forbes, who is also a veteran editor of Condé Nast, told the New York Timesthat the only thing not being taught to students is design itself.
Topics taught include the fashion calendar, the history of fashion, important designers, fashion journalism, retail, business, marketing, and public relations.
“In Britain we’ve got design covered. London has some of the world’s best designers and the world’s best design schools. Why would we compete with that?” Ms. Forbes said in an interview at the college, which is in a newly refurbished SoHo building that once belonged to Central Saint Martins and is a short walk from the head office at Vogue House.
