ELLE and H&M Fashion Network Event

Last Wednesday Katie  and I were invited to attend the ELLE and H&M Fashion Network Event, held at London’s flagship H&M store over on Oxford Street.  We were also joined by our lovely blogger friend Jaime London Boy and enjoyed an evening listening to the pearls of wisdom that some of British ELLE magazine’s elite had to say.

With the focus on ‘how to get your dream job’, Anna Ogundehin, (ELLE’s Acting Executive Fashion Editor) took to the mic and addressed the importance of research, dedication and determination in order to successfully make it in the fashion industry.  It was also interesting to hear Anna explaining the many different aspects of her job, as well as how she came to be at ELLE.  Anna and her colleagues were also on hand to individually chat to guests and answer their questions on how to make it in the industry (Katie didn’t seem to want to let them go!).

With unemployment for young adults and University leavers becoming a serious headache for the Government at the moment, it was refreshing to see such huge fashion names bringing their collective clout together to organise this event.  We even got treated to a courtesy copy of this month’s magazine…for aspirational purposes I am sure.
