I love Fashion Films

Ask anyone that knows me, and they'll tell you I love a good fashion film. I love the dresses, the drama and the true craftsmanship that goes into each design. Last Spring there was the Sex and the City Movie, then Valentino: The Last Emperor, followed by Confessions of a Shopaholic, and now of course, The September Issue. Filmmaker R.J. Cutler was granted exclusive access to the Vogue offices in order to follow Anna Wintour and see the chaos that goes into making the coveted September issue.

The film focuses on Anna Wintour herself, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine who is one of the most powerful women in the world of fashion. You may remember another fashion film, The Devil Wears Prada, which is loosely based on her. “It’s quite hard to look up at yourself in such an intense way,” said Anna Wintour after the Sundance premiere of “The September Issue.”

The September Issue, financed by A&E IndieFilms will open in New York on August 28th. It will open elsewhere on September 11th. The film has already been sold to the UK, Latin America, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Spain, Scandinavia, the Baltics, Iceland, Japan, Greece, Korea, Taiwan, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East, Israel, Thailand and, just recently, Russia.

Fashion Insider Note:
I’ve heard rumors of an exclusive Director’s Party as part of Bellevue Fashion Week in September! Stay tuned for more info!
