Video: What Is Fashion School Really Like?

Your questions get answered.

Fashion school can be a big jump, and it comes with its fair share of stereotypes and anxieties.  Whether you're starting out as a fashion-school-freshman this year, or thinking of applying in the future, there is a lot of research required to figure out if it is the best path for you.   

Couturesque's Managing Fashion Editor Xenia Klein goes to fashion school in London, and we asked you to send in your questions for her.  She sat down and answered the big ones - start taking notes, and while you're at it, subscribe to our super cute new YouTube channel.  We'll be posting lots of Q&A's with big names in fashion, plus behind the scenes looks at what goes on in the industry and at Couturesque HQ.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
