First Lady Michelle Obama led a Fashion Workshop at The White House for 150 students from around the US. There were 5 fashion-focused subjects: wearable technology, construction, inspiration, entrepreneurship, and journalism. The Journalism Workshop was led by Visionaire's Cecilia Dean, with the participation of Lucky's Eva Chen and Vogue's Edward Enninful. Their students got a taste of the real world working under pressure of a real deadline, collaborating with each other on reporting, writing, image editing, layouts, and pagination. They were permitted special access (not available to the other students) to all the workshops in order to observe, report on, and then produce a 'zine of the day's activities which was given to all the participants as a keepsake of this special event.
