EDITOR: CAITLYN MCADAM
Hi, my name is Caitlyn, and I am Editor in Chief at Fashion North.
I am a third-year fashion journalism student, and I am from Newcastle. I have always enjoyed writing about the fashion and beauty industry because I am just obsessed with buying clothes and make-up. My two favourite high street shops are H&M and Zara. I love creating content whether it being imagery or a video to share with like-minded people. The reason I decided to study Fashion Journalism stemmed from my fashion blog, where I produce original fashion and beauty content targeted to young independent women. By having a passion for fashion and journalism, this has allowed me to expand my skills further and I owe it all to Fashion North and the creative team behind it.
DEPUTY EDITOR: LUCY BRITNELL
SOCIAL MEDIA EDITOR: BECCA REDFORD
Hi, I’m Becca and I am a 21-year old Fashion Journalism student at the University of Sunderland.
I am currently in my final year of studies and I have recently become the social media editor for Fashion North. I currently live in Newcastle but I am hoping to move to Manchester or London once I graduate to focus on a career in social media and freelance journalism.
TRENDS EDITOR: EVE FRANKLIN
Hi, my name is Eve and I am the Trends Editor for Fashion North.
I’m in my third and final year of my fashion journalism degree and I am from a small town in Cumbria called Barrow. I love writing about anything relating to fashion and beauty, whether it’s an easy-to-read get the look, or a hard-hitting feature about issues within the industry. The main reason why I chose to study Fashion Journalism at Sunderland is because of the Fashion North website. It’s great to be able to have a go at writing different kinds of articles and be able to showcase your work online for everyone to see!
FEATURES EDITOR: YASMIN DEFTY
Hi, my name is Yasmin and I’m the features editor at Fashion North.
I’m in my third year here at Sunderland University, studying fashion journalism. I enjoy writing and fashion, so combining the two is perfect for me. I love shopping and I probably do it far too much; Zara, ASOS and Feel Unique are my favourites. I couldn’t live without perfume, jewellery and coffee.
DEPUTY FEATURES EDITOR: HOLLY ALLTON
Hi, my name is Holly Allton and I’m Deputy Features Editor at Fashion North.
I am a second year Journalism student from South Shields. I decided to take Fashion Journalism as an optional module last year and since then my excitement and love for the fashion industry and writing for it, has grown so much. I decided to take on the role as Deputy Features Editor as features have always intrigued me, and I find reading and writing them to be an enjoyable experience. I love to create content based on affordability as that is something I also look for, from piecing together vintage pre-loved clothes or buying high street make-up – Revolution is my fave! I am so happy that Fashion North have given me this platform to use as a creative outlet and a way of learning new skills too. As a 25 year old mature student, I worried that I would struggle at university after being out of education for so long, but I feel I have found my feet quite easily due to the help and opportunities University of Sunderland and all of it’s Journalism departments have offered me.
BEAUTY EDITOR: SORINA MIHAILA
Hi! My name is Sorina Mihaila.
I am the beauty editor for Fashion North and I study journalism at Sunderland University. I love writing and inspiring people and I have always been fascinated by the beauty world. However, I have never seen it as a superficial interest. You can love both makeup and literature.
