What do you get when you cross Channel 4’s flagship soap with one of Britain's coolest fashion magazines? Company featuring on Hollyoaks, thats what!
Hollyoaks approached us, and have teamed up with us here at Company magazine in a special story-line that will see Hollyoaks characters Esther (Jazmine Franks) and George (Steven Roberts) land internships at the much sought after fashion publication (of course!). The special week of episodes set in our London based offices will transmit in July and will see both characters out of their depth and in the big beautiful capital City.
As part of the story-line, our very own Company Magazine Editor Victoria White, will star in the show as herself (albeit a slightly meaner version!) whilst Laura and Ruby from our fashion team also have cameos and helped style the fashion shoot for the show! Reality crosses with fiction though, as an actress plays our fashion editor as a fictitious character called Cat, and the offices were recreated as a set (ours aren't quite as tidy as in Hollyoaks!)
The story will follow the ups and downs of the teens' week here at Company as Esther gets to grips with her new found independence and George finds himself entwined in an office romance with fellow intern Ryan (George Evans). However when Esther ruins a one off piece before a fashion shoot she risks losing everything including her career and her new-found friendship with George. Will she salvage her place at Company and fix it with George?
