anna on the september issue in the september issue. (what?)

I hope that viewers will understand more clearly the hard work and sense of mission that goes into producing this magazine. Fashion is so often presented in the culture as a thing of froth, which, of course, it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with care and a sense of values.  – Anna Wintour, … Continue reading
