The September Issue


Netflix is an extraordinary thing, which I’m sure any other person who has it would agree. I discovered a collection of fashion documentaries including one called The September Issue aka the real deal The Devil Wears Prada. It was so inspiring I watched it twice that day. In a nutshell, it portrays the process behind Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue and the fashion industry’s Wonder Woman, and her team’s effort on the then largest Vogue issue in its history (now the ruling is their September 2012 issue). Watching Wintour shuffle through draft boards, meeting designers and analyzing their collections, swiping through racks of couture and shoot concepts, organizing magnetic pages in order, and any hardcopy paper product she handled inspired me to finally update my style moodboard.

My real-life Pinterest board was formerly covered in magazine clippings of florals, chiffon, and pink. Basically the pre-shave days. It didn’t take much conceptualizing; I just tore anything that caught my eye. After pinning and critiquing, I was left with three styles: eccentric chic, edgy feminine, and rugged boho. Apparently I’m all over the place.


After watching all these designers and industry influencers, I couldn’t help but be in awe of how God is the all-time greatest designer out there. He did create all these marvelous designers with innovative and intricate minds that eventually accomplish these masterpieces after all. The thought of God who created this universe from every star to every ant has not only created you but loves you beyond anything else. Get that. How incredible is He!
