This impresses my employers as it's an unusual and impressive combination of subjects. It's great to understand and be able to analyse each and every brand you come across - who their target audience is and why they position themselves in a certain way. There's a reason behind every campaign and move etc. The journalism side has taught me how to approach publications when pitching story ideas, which has led to articles being published as well as being the Fashion Editor of my own online magazine (Navy Magazine) with fellow London Met Journalism students!" -Laura Allbones, 2016
