Academy of Art University & Fashion Journalism

The Academy of Art University is back in the news again and for good reasons. For 2018, the San Francisco-based school has announced the winner of its fashion journalism scholarship. Adriana Georgiades, a 23-year-old fashion journalism student, won this exclusive award thanks to her brilliant submission. There were more than enough people who jumped in head-first and the topic of discussion was a perfect question of choice that relates to fashion lovers. “Is social media the future of fashion journalism?” The winner of this contest would receive an internship with TRC Marketing as well as a $1,500 scholarship. This was right down Georgiades’ alley because she already has a firm-understanding of fashion.

Social media is undoubtedly the future of fashion journalism,” said Georgiades. Fashion is everywhere in the 21st century, including television commercials, magazines, billboards, blogs and popular social media sites. The South African-native has a “hard news” background. While attending Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, she was the school’s sports editor. Being such a huge Liverpool fan, there was always more than enough topics to write about that pertained to sports. This is exactly what she was doing, but Georgiades wanted to do more than just write about sports. Her heart was truly consumed by another field of work, and the fashion industry was where she wanted to be. In 2016, Georgiades earned a B.A. in Journalism.

Georgiades relocated to the United States and the Academy of Art University was the only place that offered a fashion degree at the master’s level. The Academy of Art University is located in San Francisco, California, and it offers a wide variety of undergraduate degrees, graduate degrees, certificates and development programs. While attending this for-profit school, she got a taste for what it was truly like to be a fashion writer.

Some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry has come from this fine institute such as Raven Symone, Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad and Asencio. Big things are expected from Adriana Georgiades in the future, and she has a strong backing that will provide more than enough support.
