"You either know fashion or you don't"

Mrs. Anna Wintour knows fashion as depicted in The September Issue documentary of the journey of producing the unprecedented biggest Vogue issue ever published- the thing weighed almost 4lbs! Directed by RJ Cutler, he had carte-blanche and filmed for about 8 months of footage of the making of the 800-page September ’07 edition. The Canadian premier was featured during the closing of MFW 17 at Cinémathèque Québécoise on October 16.

The movie confirms our belief in the Devils-Wears-Prada persona- she is cold, tough as nails shielded in her signature well-coiffed bob and oversize black glasses. Since Vogue is deemed as the style bible, she is definitely the deity of fashion for what is yeah or nay along with a following of disciples adhering to her every wish (even Oscar de la Renta listens obediently).

Surprisingly, she has an opposing force that isn’t inhibited to stand her own. Grace Coddington is a former model turned bohemian Creative Director at Vogue. With her brazen red hair, she is a delight to watch.

Even more surprisingly, the ice queen as a softer side seen in tender moments with her daughter. In her defence, to rise to the top, you can’t necessarily be Mr. Nice Guy. Besides, there will not be as much hoop-la on her demeanour if she was a man.

Overall, it is a must see for the fashionistas at heart!

MFW 17 - 14.09

Eve Gravel’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection brought you on a melodic fanfare debuting with a spring-meadow wedding dress ending on a stark funeral attire clad with umbrella and all.

The assortment displayed great items that come spring all stylistas will be flaunting.
There was the usual suspect of the ubiquitous Balmain-influence of the strong shoulder and military influence (or is that from MJ???).

Liquid bodysuit worn with low slung trousers.
Sequined blazer.

No heart
Too thin models in need of protein.
