Interviews

This column talks about the variety of jobs in UK’s fashion and beauty industries. In Fashion and Beauty Interviews we try to show different angles of those glamorous industries. On one hand, Yukova interviews fashion designers. So that you can understand what stands behind each collection. For example, what inspired that collection, its main features and details of its development.

On the other hand, there are some great Q&A’s with top beauty professionals. Here you can read an interview with Smashbox makeup coach or Bumble and Bumble education manager. Also, there is a section about the backstage of the modelling industry. For those who want to learn more about this tough and competitive industry.
