Leanne Robson (2003-2008) was recently selected as one of eight fashion graduates to guest edit the October issue of Company magazine. Leanne who studied Printed Textiles & Surface Design at Leeds College of Art used her design skills to put together mood boards for Autumn /Winter 2012 trends. She also contributed to several different areas of the magazine from fashion features to production and even interviewing radio celebrity Fearne Cotton. “I am so grateful to the Company team for this amazing opportunity as a young graduate, it’s a dream come true to get to come to the Company offices and experience working in the art department of a fashion magazine,” enthused Leanne.
She obviously made the right impression with Company bosses as she has just been offered a permanent position as an art assistant for the magazine. The fashion industry is notoriously difficult to break into so this is a fantastic achievement. Well done Leanne!
