We are excited! Following the example of American Vogue with The September Issue in 2009, British Vogue has given BBC2 unprecedented access for a new documentary series airing in 2016.
The series, consisting of two-hour-long episodes, will go behind the scenes at Vogue, documenting in the office as well as on location. Thus, BBC wants to explore the magazine’s role and influence as it has often been called the “bible of fashion”.
“We have never previously agreed to allow the cameras into the magazine, but 100 years seems a fitting time”
Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman
Lightbox, who is going to produce the documentary, has stated that it does not only want to explore the current situation and influence at Vogue, but it also wants to ask what the role of fashion is in the 21st century and why it remains important. Furthermore, they’re going to reveal how each issue is put together every month, something that has already been dealt with in “September Issue”.
I can’t wait to get an insight into la grande Vogue, a magazine that has been fascinating me since I was a little girl, probably because it always seemed like a world for itself, unreachable for normal human beings.
