As I want to forge a career in fashion journalism when I leave uni, I knew that I need to gain all the experience I can get because it is such a competetive area. I applied last night to work at my local newspaper (the Ilford Recorder) during the summer and the editor has e-mailed me back saying that they will try to fit me in over the summer. WOO!! I know it's not necessarily got the wow factor of saying I've got a placement at Vogue or Marie Claire, but hey, it's a brilliant start as far as I'm concerned, and at least I'll get a feel for the publishing world.
I can't wait for them to hopefully e-mail me back with details!
