Meet the team behind Protégé Vol. 2
Last year saw the much-lauded inaugural issue of Protégé magazine come to life. A student publication – run and conceptualized by LISOF students from both Pretoria and Johannesburg campuses, Protégé Vol. 1 broke new ground by becoming the first student-run and institutional fashion publication on the continent. Introducing – the new team behind Africa’s glossiest student mag.
This year, Vol. 2 is set to push the boundaries even further with a new team of creative minds ready to push the envelope and set new standards in the way we consume fashion media.
The Protégé Team consists of approximately 60 LISOF Fashion Media 3rd year students based in both Johannesburg and Pretoria. The team is built around the basic ‘Niche Fashion Magazine Framework’, with roles such as Managing Editor, Online Editor, Features, Marketing, Advertising, Online, Copy Editors and more. The magazine is there to provide a real world scenario for the 3rd year Fashion Media students to produce something professional and creative with a strong foundation in the theoretical constraints of a niche fashion magazine/book.
Overseeing the project in the capacity of Managing Director alongside fellow lecturer, Colin O’Mara Davis and with guidance from Erica de Greef (Head of Department & Managing Director) , Nicola Cooper has tremendous trust and praise for the newly appointed team behind Protégé –
“This year we have an extremely strong team that are not only ready to deliver 200%, but who have a profound respect for the Protégé Vol 1. students who created the very first issue. Protégé Vol 2. students are ready to live up to the challenge set by the previous team and to push the publication further as a result.”
This year there will a strong online component and interactive elements, in which other students from other nstitutions will have the opportunity to be a part of something great.
