Fashion Journalism by Grazia & Fontys


Hi all,

Last Thursday I had my final evening class of the Fashion Journalism course organized by Fontys Hogescholen and Grazia. The course has been super useful and I learned a lot about fashion, writing, journalism, interviews, online media, magazines, blogging and even marketing. It all has been a great adventure and every evening I went home with a bunch of new found inspiration and positivity. Something I was looking for and kind of needed. Besides a lot of new knowledge and inspiration this course also gave me more self-esteem and dreams. Being a fashion journalist might be the career and dream I need to pursue.. Who knows? ๐Ÿ˜‰ And of course I need to mention the beautiful friendship with Britt and Dagmar, you girls are the best and I will miss you every Thursday evening hihi <3

I would like to thank Fontys Hogescholen and Grazia for organizing this course and for giving me this wonderful opportunity… ๐Ÿ™‚

I learned a lot during the course of Fashion Journalism.

The first evening class Harriet Calo (fashion illustrator and blogger) told us to always stay elegant since you will be likely to meet someone more than once. She also told us that you need to show the world you are willing to work hard to achieve your dreams (and that working experience can also be delivering the newspaper everyday for 5 years haha). 

The Dames van Dale told us to always do your research and run the extra mile. You should always try to know and do more than your colleagues. Seems logical, right? On the third evening fashion journalist Karin Kuijpers told us that you should be curious as a fashion journalist and that you should always show courage. I really loved her honesty and wow, this power woman is just bold! 

Rinke Tjepkema from the Dutch VOGUE showed me personally that it is not always the right education that matters. She had practically the same background (Pscyhology) as me and actually ended up in the fashion world at one of the most awesome magazines there is. This was so inspiring for me! Besides that Rinke Tjepkema gave us some do’s and don’s within online media. More online media stuff, Kirsten Jassies from Blogtoday and Anouk Bos from Creators of Desire gave us some tips about blogging. They told us that as a blogger you should always be where the buzz is, for example Fashion Weeks.

On the last evening Carolien Vader from told us about the Psychology behind Marketing, super interesting and a heads up for me. Psychology is everywhere, yay!

During this last evening class we also got feedback on our articles and other assingments. We ended the course with a glass bubbles and all got our certificates. Now the course is over and I still have not figured out what I am going to do with my Thursday evenings haha. Ah well, we will see ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a lovely day! xoxo Saranda
