The current editor of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, has visited Nottingham Trent University to talk to students about her 25 year career at the magazine.

Alexandra, who is due to step down from the iconic magazine in June, met with MA Magazine Journalism students before taking part in a question and answer session in front of journalism, fashion, communication and photography students.

Led by Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism lecturer, Julie Nightingale, the session covered a variety of topics from changes to the journalism industry and the role of the editor, to Alexandra’s decision to leave Vogue and her future plans.

This was the first time Alexandra had visited Nottingham and she spoke about her knowledge of the city’s lace heritage and the growing number of fashion start-up businesses driven by talent coming out of the University.

Julie Nightingale, who leads the MA Magazine Journalism course at NTU, said: “Alexandra is an icon of both the media and fashion worlds and she was very open in sharing her experiences and thoughts with the students – many of whom collect copies of Vogue. Her career so far has been exceptional and we were lucky to hear her fascinating insights into the industry and its future direction.”

Vogue recently celebrated its centenary year with a cover featuring HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and a BBC documentary on life at the magazine.
