Spindle Magazine is a fashion, music and arts magazine, which focuses on promoting emerging talent. It started in Brighton as a bi-annual print magazine in 2010. In 2012 Spindle re-launched in London as an online magazine and now has editors in Toronto and New York.

Heather’s years of experience in the field of journalism and freelance styling was the added element that made for an insightful presentation with valuable tips and facts on succeeding in the industry.

We asked Heather to give us one key piece of advice she could give for succeeding in the industry – to which she responded “Building relationships and friendships.  In this industry it is so important because this is how people will help you get to the next stage of your career. And always be nice! Absolutely everyone seems to know everyone – it really is a small industry”
