About Claudia Croft

Greatly inspired by French Vogue during her early teens, after obtaining a degree from Leeds University, Claudia set her sights firmly on a career in fashion – leaving her native Cheshire for Londons Central Saint Martins college, where she studied MA Fashion under the tutorage of the late and great Louise Wilson OBE.

Landing her first writing job at fashion trade magazine Drapers Record, Claudia then joined the London Evening Standard where her articles about fashion shows and events frequently made the coveted page three spot. In 2001, Claudia joined the Sunday Times and launched the successful ‘Wardrobe Mistress’ column, later rising to become the newspapers deputy editor, acting editor and head of fashion. She has interviewed the likes of Donatella Versace, Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Goga Ashkenazi and the late Karl Lagerfeld.

I finished my degree and came to Saint Martins – I really wanted to be there because of John Galliano and Alexander McQueen and just the reputation of the school. It was like a sort of finishing school for cool – like the Oxbridge of fashionClaudia Croft

Claudias career credentials also include fashion features director posts at Sunday Times Style magazine and British Vogue. Shes currently the deputy editor at 10 Magazine and contributor at British Vogue.
