ABOUT THE MINOR
Independent fashion magazines
In the honours programme Independent Fashion Magazines, you get to discover the world of independent magazines. We go back to the basics and learn about every aspect that is important in making a magazine. Creating a printed paper magazine needs to be worth killing trees for. With this in mind, we students produce a magazine with extra care and in-depth content. After working long and hard on quality content, we send it to the printer and there’s no turning back.
In this minor, you can discover for yourself how fun it is to create a magazine. The programme allows you to make three amazing magazines. So channel your inner Stylist, Text Editor, Graphic Designer, Social Media Expert or Art Director (or all of them?) and go crazy!
By the end of this minor, you will present a new issue of Garment Magazine.
After the six magazines of Part 2 are finished, we collectively choose one of the six concepts to be the concept for our final magazine. This is what you will be working on as the whole group for the remaining weeks.
In the last part of this minor, you will work for the Garment Company. This starts by doing a job interview for the role you like the most. We want our team to fulfill their highest potential and want to create a magazine where people contribute by doing what they do best.
You are going to focus on your job and potential side jobs so that each person within the company can contribute in the best way possible.
OF THE MINOR
In the first ten weeks of the minor, you will be able to test out every role in the magazine. Six groups will each create their own magazine about the chosen theme. In our case, headwear. Within your group, you can be an Art Director, write an article, prepare an editorial shoot, dive into binding methods for your magazine and look for printing methods as well.
In this phase you will discover what your strengths and weaknesses are. This way, you can apply for the job role that fits you best during the final part of the magazine.
The six magazines we created during this part, this year, can be seen on the left.
