Entranced by The September Issue? Addicted to Chris Moore’s blog? Know more details of designers and stylists private lives than you do about your fave movie and pop stars? (and your friends and family?)
If yes, it would seem that you and your obsession are in very good company. The demand for all this insider info has resulted in a new print magazine launch called Industrie detailing all the whys and wherefores of the fashion biz, or as they put it, the ‘culture of fashion’
It aims to offer its readers an in-depth look into the fashion industry by way of investigative and extensive interviews with fashion’s key power players and opinion formers. Anna Wintour (needs no introduction) graces the cover, while inside there are brain-picking sessions with Natalie Massenet, the founder of Net-A-Porter and Luis Venegas, Founder of Fanzine137. Plus superstylists Karl Templer, Katie Grand, Marie Amélie-Sauvé and Panos Yiapanis all open their hearts too.
Intriguing, non? When Grazia Daily really put our thinking
Just look at Jefferson Hack. The former Mr Moss and editor in chief of Another Magazine has already got two campaigns under his belt – for the GAP and Converse shoes, stylist Katy England appeared with her husband Bobby Gillespie (of Primal Scream) in Uniqlo posters.
At the moment,
Meanwhile ridiculously hip sunglasses brand Retro Super Future compiled their entire lookbook from portraits of the fashion editors of various publications (Well it is a demographic that wears sunglasses A LOT!) including, our very dapper Fashion Editor At Large – Miss Melanie Rickey.
What do you thinkof this progression? Are you interested in what stylists and publishers have to say? Or is all the exposure beginning to seem less fascinating and more self indulgent?
