Anna Wintour is considered the most influential person in the world of fashion. Ahead of owners of luxury emporiums and cheap clothes, designers or models.
It from its position of "chief" had to see his name began to be known outside the circles of the fashion scene by guilt or by the movie "The Devil Wears Prada."
All the publicity generated by the film about her figure (I will not say bad publicity because it seldom is) made her rodase consented to a documentary about how to perform the most important number of years Vogue, the September and he title of this film: "The September Issue."
In my opinion one of the most curious to see their dealings with the designers and how the simple fact that she shows an interest in one of them, and make it out in your journal or recommended firms is a boost to his career , as seen with Thakoon and their collaboration for GAP as part of a joint project with the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund.
Prizes awarded by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and year after year are determined to rebrand as the "Oscars of fashion" are quite rightly to know what these are protected by the director of Vogue USA.
One of the weaknesses of Anna recent years have been the designers of Asian descent. Prabal Gurung , Jason Wu , Richard Chai , Doo.Ri , Phillip Lim , Anna Sui and especially Alexander Wang (each with its corresponding CFDA Award ) have gone from being almost a complete unknown to being a regular presence in their editorials.
Among the winners are also common Proenza Schouler and Rodarte , two very talented sisters, but that did not meet the image that Anna should have considered that and went on a diet in 2008. Vogue put at their disposal for four months a personal trainer and a dietitian (as he had done with Oprah) in exchange for his magazine show in his "new body", but really only one has not recovered the lost kilos.
Another of his most famous protected is Manolo Blahnik who shot to international fame through the series Sex and the City, but went from a virtually unknown to what is today thanks to Anna began to put on their shoes and display them in his magazine, his declining popularity coincided with the years that Wintour had decided that old-fashioned. Stage for the canary luck seems to have ended as a little over a year his shoes are back in Vogue. Evil tongues say that to know when Anna Wintour is happy with no more than Blahnik see if occasionally puts on thong sandals bearing cross in the first picture of the post (which appears in Calvin Klein), a 1994 model and although "Call" have been renamed as "AW".
She was the "recommended" to John Galliano and Alexander McQueen for Givenchy to replace when pusirna Gallianothe head of Dior. Or Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.
And it is clear that it is better for anyone who wants a career in fashion one of his proteges.
