I just bought my September issue. Do you have yours?
I anxiously await this issue of Vogue. As they say; if fashion is a religion than Vogue is the bible. Weighing nearly 3 lbs and consisting of 584 pages of inspiration, it provides hours of browsing, dreaming. I always rip pages, tag corners; filing it away in my journal.
This issue was a definite MUST HAVE with the drop of this month’s magazine coinciding with the premiere of The September Issue, filmmaker R J Culter ‘s documentary about the making of the 2007 version of the issue. Cutler got unprecedented access into Anna Wintour’s world; so of course I was curious… not to mention I was interested in seeing see what it takes to stay on top in the fashion world -giving lessons that could be learned in the interior world two fold.
The Steven Meisel shoot In the Mood – 1942 New York – bebop, smoky bars, peplums and shoulder pads. A fashion era I have always had an infinity for. Love, love, love the detail on the Dior wool suit to the left.
This shot seems like a flashback of my family album. It could very well be my grandmother and my great grandmother- two women that have inspired and framed my design outlook.
Don’t you just LOVE the draping- so Barbara Stanwyck.
