Three years ago, I started my first job in the fashion industry as an assistant Creative Director of a famous magazine. My boss, warns: “You’re going to have to put up with the same pressure as Andy, or more. But life isn’t as fast to a happy ending as a movie!”
Fashion is not flashy it’s a trick from the classic movies
The scene in which Andy transforms into designer clothes and struts like a true fashion-icon on the streets of NYC has somehow become the typical image of the mass audience when it comes to fashionistas. In fact, real fashion reporters don’t do color or at least – don’t mix & match “exaggerated” like that.
The whole fashion world knows Anna Wintour. After all these years at the top, she still appears on the front row of every show with her bob hair and sunglasses , wearing a round neck dress in the summer and wearing long coats with patterns. large in winter.
In the world of clothing and its accompanying luxuries, there are countless editors who follow the same ideology as Anna. They do not change too much about the way they dress, in stark contrast to their articles on the famous newspaper.
In The Confession of a Shopaholic , Rebecca “caught the eye” of Allete editor-in-chief because of her clever articles about shopping habits, not because of her stylish and sparkling looks. In the book Tales from the Back Row , famous fashion author Amy Odell honestly shares
In Vietnam too, if you’ve never stepped into a photoshoot, I’ll tell you, the only person with style is the model or celebrity of that day. As a stylist , you can’t wear too many layers of clothes to iron dozens of outfits in tropical weather and put on a pair of terrorist shoes like Gucci Flashstrek and run in and out of the set.
Neither is an editor, she or he cannot use her fashion knowledge to overwhelm a celebrity in an interview. In this world, they don’t care too much about what you wear, it’s important that you judge who wears what and help who wears what. So, don’t be surprised if on a normal working day, you catch someone wearing pajamas coming out of a famous newsroom!
Believe me, this fashion industry or society in general operates on overlapping relationships, dominated by many forces and sometimes more dramatic than “screen”.
Do you think a young designer willing to go head-to-head and even declare war on a veteran name like Baroness would easily gain popularity and media attention? There is none! In fact, you will receive a series of notoriety and possibly disappear from this world altogether.
Don’t let movies like The September Issues encourage you to act like Grace Coddington. You should only do that when you are already Grace Coddington, otherwise start your career with bows.
The success of the major editors, editors, or designers of the market lies not only in the fact that they are an excellent writer, or a creator with magic that makes customers “crazy” but also the intimate relationship with the factors that determine the survival of fashion.
In Vietnam too, it’s not wrong to say that the industry is small because celebrities, stylists, make-up artists and media people know each other!
Therefore, it is not enough to have an aesthetic taste or an article that is read by many people. Because otherwise, Tim Walker would have become a star because of his outstanding talent, rather than spending a long time doing chores like cleaning the poop every day at Richard Advon’s studio and then being fired for “incompetent”. moving” before dominating fashion photography for both decades.
When watching Ocean’s 8 and Devil Wear Prada, most pagans will have to say, “Wow, they (editor-in-chief) are so powerful!” . However, newsrooms are often portrayed as a bit too flashy. The image of the office on the top floor of the central building, the staff wearing the latest brands and the most expensive collection from the famous fashion houses, etc., have accidentally become too powerful. their role.
Anna Wintour is really powerful, but she is also just a link in the fashion industry. She can choose to put someone, or a certain fashion house on the cover of Vogue, or be indifferent to a certain brand. Even so, the results do not really affect the brand too much, especially the old names.
We may have heard of the “rice is not good, soup is not sweet” between Hedi Slimane and Anna Wintour. Celine’s recent shows have not had an invitation to Vogue, but the heat and sales of the French fashion house are still increasing steadily.
Same goes for the stars. Unless you’re Rihanna or Lady Gaga , it’s extreme that you have the right to demand what you can wear, even demanding the backbone treasures of fashion houses like the pirate sisters in Ocean’s 8 did. unlikely to happen.
Rosé was led by the Creative Director of Saint Laurent to the Met Gala in an outfit that experts judged as faded because of her fashion sense? And then why would anyone be willing to let Kim Kadarshian wear Marilyn Monroe’s legendary dress in spite of the accidents that can and have happened to the historic treasure?
Is it entirely because Kim is too rich and powerful to force the museum to do as she pleases? And with your usual understanding of red carpet fashion, do you really think this outfit from CHANEL’s Haute Couture Fall-Winter 21/22 collection is Kristen Stewart’s pick.
Alessandro Michele has great merit in reviving Gucci’s once-glorious after the unstoppable slide under Frida Giannini. But the fact that his seat is in danger of being shaken following the recent reorganization of the Italian brand’s creative department gives us the most obvious answer.
Not everyone, money is the most powerful thing in the fashion industry – something that movies often hide, because by nature, cinema is also an advertising tool. Even money unreasonably dominates the film’s circuit. Have any of us ever wondered – where does a marketing expert like Emily get the money to bring all the “hot hit” items of high-end fashion houses into her wardrobe in Emily in Paris ?
Obviously, cinema has great merit in contributing to a more colorful picture of fashion. But of course that’s not all. Let me re-emphasize the point that fashion is not frivolous and to complement, it is much more real and naked than what we see on the big screen.
