Coinciding with the 120th anniversary of Vogue, the film takes a look at some of the world’s most influential fashion images as conceived by the magazine’s iconic fashion editors (including Polly Allen Mellen, Grace Coddington, Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele, and Camilla Nickerson). The people who are responsible for the fashion images are the fashion editors. They have always been the secret weapon.
What, exactly, is the job of a fashion stylist? It’s a difficult question to answer — even for the creative women and men who have toiled for years in the role. The documentary highlights the visual and historical contribution Vogue editors past and present have made not only to the magazine, but also to the world of fashion itself.
This is great insight into how the editors work at Vogue. You really see how each of them is an artist in their own right. Creating a canvas of fashion within a timeframe. They are quite the visionary, some eccentric, all unique.
