Condé Nast College, or Scholastic Fashion Heaven

In January 2013, the magazine publishing supremo Condé Nast will open its first place of higher, glamorous education.  Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design in London will offer a ten-week Vogue Fashion Certificate and a one-year Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma.

Can you imagine the inspiration that will sweep the halls?!  The reputation of Condé Nast is one of authority and passion.  For magazines, the company produces the best of THE best.  It seems only natural that they have a place where leaders in the industry pass on their wealth of knowledge and creativity to future generations.
