Fashion Graduates Take Over Company Magazine

Company has once again turned its October issue into a fashion graduate 'takeover'. For the second year running, the young women's fashion magazine has enabled seven aspiring fashion journalists to become involved in all aspects of editing from conducting the cover interview and writing key features, to styling and designing the pages...

The initiative, sponsored by George at Asda, nurtures fresh talent and offers fashion students a once in a lifetime opportunity as they look to launch their careers in publishing.

In March this year, Company launched a competition to find the best fashion graduates. Hundreds of entries were received, which were then shortlisted to 20. With the help of representatives from George at Asda, Company invited these applicants to attend a brainstorming session at Graduate Fashion Week. Here, the final seven were chosen.

"Our graduate takeover is stronger than ever this year, with some exceptional talent being showcased," said Victoria White, Editor of Company. "Company is renowned for supporting and nurturing young talent and I can't wait for our readers to see what has been created."

"Getting a foot in the door of any industry, let alone publishing, is really difficult," said Nadia Dawson, Publisher of Company. "That's why our annual graduate 'takeover' edition is so important. We're looking forward to bringing yet another innovative issue of Company to the newsstand and providing our readers with something truly unique."

A hashtag supporting the campaign, #companygrads, has been created. The graduates also blogged about their time with the Company team at and tweeted via @companymagazine.

The October issue of Company is on sale 11th September.
