Inside Vogue: My Diary Of Vogue's 100th Year (Hardback)Alexandra Shulman (author)
- Not available
Discover the real story behind the BBC TV Absolutely Fashion documentary. Alexandra Shulman reveals the emotional and logistical minefield of producing the 100th anniversary issue (the Duchess of Cambridge cover surprise), organizing the star-studded Vogue 100 Gala, working with designers from Victoria Beckham to Karl Lagerfeld and contributors from David Bailey to Alexa Chung - all under the continual scrutiny of a television documentary crew. But narrowly-contained domestic chaos hovers - spontaneous combustion in the kitchen, a temperamental boiler and having to send bin day reminders all the way from Milan fashion week.
For anyone who wants to know what the life of a fashion magazine editor is really like, or for any woman who loves her job, this is a rich, honest and sharply observed account of a year lived at the centre of British fashion and culture.
