Ready to Vogue up your education?
Condé Nast is opening an Arts & Design college this January in London’s Soho district, and is offering two degrees.
Here are the deets:
A 10-week-long Vogue Fashion Certificate will be available starting in January for ,237 and a year-long Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma is up for grabs in October for ,339.
Courses included in the curriculum are fashion business, retail, brand marketing, the beauty industry, styling and art direction, PR and marketing, fashion journalism, fashion vernacular and key fashion designers.
Additionally, students will visit fashion museums and gallery spaces to develop essays and projects on the international fashion calendar.
You can never go wrong with fashion-filled learning and acquiring information from Voguesters can’t do any harm either!

H&M in Times Square? That would be marvelous!
ESPN Zone formally housed the 45,000 square foot space in the Conde Nast building that the clothing retailer has their eyes on.
The spot faces West 42nd Street and has a Durst Organization 4 address, but H&M has not officially made a deal.
Spokesman for Durst, Jordan Barowitz said:
“We are in discussions with H&M but in this business, it ain’t over ’til it’s over.”
Guess we’re going to have to wait and see what happens.
The label being in the same building as Vogue is just a dream for now.

Some brave soul at Conde Nast has created a Twitter for the building’s elevator!
The tweets are from actual conversations overheard inside the 4 Times Square lifts and some of the things that come out of people’s mouths are HIGHlarious.
Here are some of our faves so far:
Girl: Omigod what happened to your knee?! Fashion boy: Oh god, I fell dancing! Girl: Omigod it’s like you came back from the war.
Fl 5 Lady peering at her friend’s to-go box of lettuce and carrots: Ooooh, that looks good!
[Guy walks into elevator wearing "Legalize Gay" t-shirt] Teen Voguer: That shirt is so two months ago.
Girl #1: There should be an elevator that only goes to Vogue. Just up to the 12th floor and back down. Girl #2: totally.
[Girl holding brownie abashedly in elevator] Male coworker: I’m not judging you.
Summer Intern: My driver had SUCH a bad attitude. I was like, “don’t complain to me, I didn’t eat lunch either! You think I eat clothes?”
Sounds like a great place to work, doesn’t it?

After a year of speculation, Conde Nast announced they’re moving out of 4 Times Square and into One World Trade Center.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have approved the publisher’s billion lease, which means they’ll be calling downtown home for the next 25 years.
The 104 story downtown building is scheduled to be completed in 2013, but Conde Nast’s 20+ magazine titles won’t be moving in until 2014.
When the big move does happen, mag’s including Vanity Fair, Vogue, W and GQ will takeover 21 floors or 1 million square feet of real estate.
Hollywood was a happenin’ place on Monday night and a fashionable one too!
While most celebs were at the Scream 4 premiere, others spent their evening at the Soho House for Condé Nast Traveler’s “Hot List” party.
One of the prettiest guests of the night was Emma Stone who looked amazing in an icy blue beaded chiffon Preen dress. Her hair and makeup were equally as beautiful, making this a perfect look from head to toe.
Bosom buddies Brooklyn Decker and Sofia Vergara both showed off their sexy figures in Dolce & Gabbana.
The Sports Illustrated model went with a navy lace dress and red Manolos, while the Modern Family actress chose a strapless tulle cocktail dress and Louboutins.
The real standout in the crowd was Vanessa Hudgens. The Sucker Punch starlet went in a completely different direction by wearing a shiny white Mimi Plange suit and Casadei heels.
A 22 year old man in Ohio has confessed to illegally accessing Conde Nast‘s computer system last year, following a probe by the FBI.
The perp, Ross Ulrich, says he isn’t sure if he’ll charged for downloading the 1,100 images, but has already agreed to pay the publisher ,500 from a copyright lawsuit.
As for why he did it?
Ross says it was so he could be first to post the image in online forums, but now he’s “over it”.
Yeah, federal investigations tend to do that.
