Finally. Finally the eve of my magazine debut has arrived, and I could not be more excited. The opportunity to take part in the Company Grads issue was presented to me through an online competition and only one trend report, one interview, one group task and two months later I was sat at my own desk embarking on the best experience I could have hoped for.
To say the Company team were welcoming would be an understatement, the fashionably dressed bunch were more than keen for us to get involved in as many parts of the issue as possible which made for an excellent learning curve and overall experience. From researching for the features team and writing up a feature, to attending shoots and taking behind-the-scenes web shots; all aspects of the mag have been overseen by us, the 8 Company Grads.
The last stint in the Company Grads experience was of course interviewing cover star, big-time presenter and style icon; Fearne Cotton. All gathered eagle-eyed around a macbook pro, we watched as the Company fashion team worked their styling magic and created the looks for the October issue until several hours and many full fashion tummies later the moment was upon us.
You may be wondering how on earth you begin to interview one of the nation's favourite ladies, but for that I guess you'll have to buy the issue.
