Interviews

This column talks about the variety of jobs in UK’s fashion and beauty industries. In Fashion and Beauty Interviews we try to show different angles of those glamorous industries.

Also, there is a section about the backstage of the modelling industry. For those who want to learn more about this tough and competitive industry.
