As a champion of creativity, we are always excited to see the next generation of artists rise up in the world of digital publishing. We are also excited to see a world now where technology and fashion are colliding, specifically with wearable tech and access to fashion through social media. In this uncharted new territory, one of the only U.S. schools to offer a designated and accredited Fashion Journalism Program, the Academy of Art University – School of Fashion, shines as a source for young fashion journalists.
Why fashion journalism? Marisa Tania, a current student at the Academy, never considered fashion journalism until interning with Dewi Magazine, one of the most prominent fashion magazines in Indonesia. After the internship she realized she wanted to write for a fashion magazine full-time. “Academy of Art University is the only school I could find with a designated and accredited fashion journalism undergraduate program and I couldn’t be happier!” says Marisa.
We’re not sure what the future of fashion and digital publishing looks like, but these talented young artists in the program are sure to keep things exciting. Explore publications from the Academy of Art University - School of Fashion on Issuu below.
The School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University has its own publication, 180 magazine, which is filled with over 200 pages of amazing student design and editorials. Issue 8 celebrates ten years of student collections premiering at New York Fashion Week, interviews with graduates and, of course, some pretty mesmerizing photography. The school also publishes a newspaper, key press moments, and student portfolios.
Aspiring fashion journalists should be sure to check out all that the Academy of Art University - School of Fashion has to offer, including their new Social Media Center. “We are cultivating the next generation of digital and print fashion journalists, magazine editors and publishers, as well as social media professionals,” said Stephan Rabimov, director of the school’s Fashion Journalism program and Social Media Center.
We are excited to see what the next generation has to say, and we’re proud to provide a platform for these up-and-coming fashion journalists to share their creativity with the world.
