Fashion, Fashion Everywhere

News Items:

  • The September Issue, a documentary released in late-August, highlights the work of editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and her staff at Vogue as they prepare for the largest-ever 2007 fall issue (which eventually weighed over four pounds.)
  • Despite the bleak economy, buyers, celebrities, and the press recently came out for New York Fashion Week, a time when fashion designers, hair stylists, and make-up artists showcased the latest runway trends.
