Condé Nast publishes the veritable fashion bible Vogue, along with a long list of other style magazines such as W, Lucky and Glamour. Condé Nast, knows fashion, so the publishing house is expanding its purview in the field, with its first college opening earlier this week.

The Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design, located in Soho just steps from Vogue House, currently has its inaugural class of 45, taking an intensive 10 week Vogue Fashion Certificate course. In October, the school will expand with another class of 45 partaking in the year-long Vogue Fashion Diploma. Both courses are dedicated to teaching the ins-and-outs of the fashion industry, with the view of getting students jobs in the often closed-off field. The syllabi include modules such as fashion photography, styling and journalism as well as PR, advertising and retail. Nicholas Coleridge, president of Condé Nast International and managing director of Condé Nast Britain told WWD:

Condé Nast is well placed to enter the field of education, with the considerable authority and expertise vested in the Vogue brand.

The faculty consists of a roster of industry insiders with former Easy Living editor Susie Forbes heading the College as principal. The cost of all this considerable authority is £6,600.00 (around $10,000) for the 10 week course and the year long diploma setting you back £19,560.00 (just under $30,000). But lest you forget, you are paying for more than just an education, but also solid list of contacts. Says Forbes:

Our courses offer unrivaled access – a front row seat into this famously opaque and hard-to-get-into industry.
