DMU student preparing to bring Disorder to fashion industry

Despite the fact that she is yet to even graduate, one Journalism student at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) has secured herself a job with fashion magazine Disorder.

Samantha Jagger, who has only recently completed her final year studying DMU’s NCTJ accredited Journalism course, has managed to find the ideal job with Disorder magazine by combining her love for fashion with her passion for journalism.

Disorder Magazine is an independent youth magazine featuring the best in new fashion, music, art, technology and film.

Samantha, who had done some work for Disorder prior to being offered a full-time role, was offered a position as a Journalist and Stylist for the magazine.

She said: “I was asked a while ago to do a photoshoot for them which they really liked and told me that they wanted to take me on full-time. I’ve also been made editor of a monthly four page feature which I’m really excited about.

“DMU made it easy for me to tailor everything I did on the Journalism course towards fashion so at the end of it I came out with the relevant journalism qualifications but I also have experience in fashion on top of that.”

One of Samantha’s first responsibilities was to represent her new employers at Graduate Fashion Week in London, the world’s biggest student fashion event.

Speaking at the catwalks, Samantha added: “Everyone’s got a really good vibe at these places, there’s just so much passion about.

“If you want to get into fashion then these are the places to be because you have to network with people to make yourself known.”
