GIVE A HOOT
While some schools only have newspapers, Barnard and Columbia put out
their own full-on, glossy fashion mag called Hoot, which even gets
some high-profile contribs, like Cathy Horyn. “The Times critic is a
Barnard alum and she wrote a thoughtful piece about how she got where
she is today, and shared her advice to future fashion writers,”
reports Fashionista.com. Horyn writes, “One [thing] I notice about a
lot of blogs is that the writing is not supported by information or in
depth knowledge about the business or the design process. They lack
reporting, which demands specific skills—being a good observer,
developing sources, knowing what is relevant.” Her advice in a
nutshell? Give a hoot.
