Looks like Meryl Streep isn’t the only devil in Prada! There’s a new film in theaters that will show the real cut- throat world of the fashion industry.
Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine for twenty years,
is the most powerful and polarizing figure in fashion. Hidden behind her
trademark bob and sunglasses, she has never allowed anyone to scrutinize the
inner workings of her magazine. Until now. With unprecedented access, filmmaker
R.J.Cutler’s new film The September Issue does for fashion what he did for
politics in The War Room.
Every August a record-breaking number of people can’t wait to get their
hands on the September issue of Vogue. The 2007 issue was and remains the
biggest ever, weighing over four pounds, selling thirteen million copies, and
impacting the $300-billion global fashion industry more than any other single
publication. An intimate, funny and surprising look at Anna Wintour and her team
of larger-than-life editors as they create this must-have Bible of fashion.
The film takes behind the scenes looks at Fashion Week, to Europe, on shoots and and into closed-door staff meetings, bearing witness to an arduous, entertaining, and sometimes emotionally demanding process!
How cool is that?! At the eye of this annual fashion hurricane is the two-decade relationship between Wintour and Grace Coddington, incomparable Creative Director and fashion genius. They are perfectly matched for the age-old conflict between creator and curator. Through them, we see close-up the delicate creative chemistry it takes to remain at the top of the ever-changing fashion field.
The September Issue is in theaters this Friday September 11th. Check out the trailer below.
