Vogue’s September Issue Is All About Activism
The September Issue of Vogue is the magazine’s biggest and most important edition of the year. Recognising that 2020 has been a year of radical change and inspired by the crucial theme of hope, British Vogue dedicates this issue to amplifying the extraordinary voices of activists fighting for a fairer, more equal society. Now, more than ever, it’s important to use our platforms to support each other so we’re excited to see Vogue spotlighting individuals striving to effect positive change, from Patrisse Cullors to Professor Angela Davis to Adwoa Aboah.
Copenhagen Fashion Week
A few weeks ago, the fashion world celebrated Scandi style in all its glory as designers showcased their SS21 collections at Copenhagen Fashion Week. Dubbed by many as the capital of sustainable fashion, the city has become increasingly popular for its effortlessly cool, forward thinking street style. The event went ahead in the form of both physical shows and digital activations, and among the most hyped brands were Ganni, Saks Potts and Eytys. We’re so excited that the fashion season is starting up again.
Last month, Netflix announced that Elizabeth Debicki will be portraying the late style icon Princess Diana in the final two seasons of The Crown. You might recognise the Australian actress for her roles in movies such as The Great Gatsby and Tenet. She will be taking over from Emma Corrin, who is set to play a younger version of the British Royal in the upcoming fourth season. We’re excited to see both actresses wearing recreations of Diana’s most famous outfits.
On Tik Tok, a trend has emerged where teens film themselves donning Gucci-inspired outfits. Just in time for autumn, these short videos are a lesson in layering, as users make a fashion statement through a colourful clash of prints and patterns. Since lockdown, Tik Tok has become the platform of choice for upcoming young creatives, so maybe Gucci will find their next breakout star for future campaigns from this popular hashtag.
