Last year, I was blessed with the amazing opportunity of being accepted into Teen Vogue’s Fashion University of 2010. Teen Vogue FashionU consists of a three day weekend, starting October 21st, of private shopping party’s, seminars and tons of fun. Developed in 2009, Teen Vogue FashionU was designed in order to give young men and women from all over the U.S. an opportunity to gain insight into different areas of the fashion industry through seminars given by elite Fashion designers, Bloggers, models and even the Teen-Vogue staff members themselves. You also get to go on private shopping sprees, behind the scenes tours, signing of your Teen Vogue Fashion Handbook, Q&A with the designers and tons of free gifts. Some applicants are even eligible to win scholarships to help pay for their college tuition. Last year when I attended some of the lineup included, Fashion Blogger Jane Aldrige of http://seaofshoes.com/ , Phil Oh of http://streetpeeper.com/, Vera Wang, Zac Posen, Charlotte Ronson, Rachel Roy, Jason Wu, Anna Wintour and many, many more. The last day of the seminar you receive a snapshot of yourself and are given a diploma of completion. All applicants must be between the ages of 16 and 24 as of October 1, 2011 and the application must be received by August 1, 2011. All applicants are notified of decision before October 1st, 2011.
