The September Issue
If you didn’t already know, September is the biggest month in the fashion industry. Not only do the fashion magazine grow in size, but it’s the sign that Fall Fashion is approaching. September signals the “end of summertime leisure and evokes a fresh start, with the school year beginning and work revving up again.” It also represents the start of a new fashion season after months of wearing warm-weather clothing. Autumn is the time of important cultural happenings, and re-engaging with the outside world.
Due to all the above, the cover of a magazine’s September issue has now become particularly crucial. Most magazine’s strive to be either be very different or to land a cover star who is enormously popular. Since it’s the biggest (and most important) issue of the year, it is planned six to eight months in advance.
Fashion and beauty lovers like myself ask their selves – Who will have the largest issue? Who will have the coolest cover?
This year VOGUE turned to Kendall Jenner. The 20 year old graces the cover in a mariachi-inspired Gucci number. It’s her first ever September Issue and first official VOGUE cover ever. “Inside the issue, there are at least 13 more equally gorgeous images of the Estee Lauder brand ambassador in threads by Alexander Wang, John Galliano, The Row, Prada, and Hood by Air, to name just a few.” Top makeup artists, hairstylists, and photographers were brought in to style the model for the famed issue.
Kendall Jenner went from a celebrity teen girl, to an aspiring runway star, to a lovely VOGUE cover girl in less than two years. She’s always been the kind of person who know’s what she’s wanted, and I think she’s accomplished just that.
There’s nothing like the start of September than with the most coveted issue of the month and the start of Pumpkin Spice Latte’s!
