Line by Line: Fashion Writing Basics
November 10, 2010
Make fashion writing a reality this season at the Boston Center for Adult Education’s (BCAE) new class, “Line by Line: Fashion Writing Basics,” taught by Boston’s own style expert, Erica Corsano, editoral director of STUFF Magazine. Students will get an insider’s look into what’s really behind the lines of fashion writing, researching and reporting, as they learn not only what makes a standout piece a show-stopper, but how to develop their own fashion-writing style. Better yet, Erica will offer one lucky student a chance to fast forward their fashion writing career by publishing their work in an upcoming issue of STUFF Magazine. A nationally recognized style expert, Erica has worked with some of the world’s most sought-after luxury brands, including Bottega Veneta, Bulgari, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo and Carolina Herrera. Erica has also worked as a contributing editor and stylist for Boston’s major publications and broadcast outlets including: Boston Editor for Lucky Magazine, Editor-at-Large for Boston Common and a contributing writer for The Boston Globe, Daily Candy and Fashion Boston—and, of course, we all know and love her for her role as the editoral director of Boston’s own, STUFF Magazine. Drawing on her vast experience in the fashion industry, Erica will discuss the differences between local and national publishing, as well as offer general writing tips and tricks for avoiding fashion-writing faux pas! Students will learn how to research and report, write for their target audience, spot and predict the latest fashion trends, and more. Don’t miss it! This BCAE class is haute!
