GET THEM TO THE GREEK: The Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design will open on 16-17 Greek Street in London’s Soho in a new building to be designed by the architecture firm Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios. The college will offer paying students a yearlong British Vogue fashion foundation course, as well as 10-week intensive fashion courses and various M.A.-level courses. Susie Forbes, former editor of Easy Living, is the principal of the college.
“It was always my ambition to have the college located within walking distance of Vogue House, the Condé Nast headquarters,” Forbes said. “Major refurbishment is about to commence and we are delighted to be working with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, who have so much experience in the education sector.”

Condé Nast noted that the college would also help “to set the cultural agenda” with an in-house exhibition space in the Georgian-windowed facade. The space will be curated by students, guest designers, stylists and fashion industry insiders. The college will open in January.
