For the first time in its 100 year history, ‘British Vogue’ has allowed TV cameras to film behind closed doors.
The fashion magazine has granted documentary maker Richard Macer unprecedented access to the UK’s style bible, its cover stars, designers, and those who run it, as the publication prepares to celebrate its centenary.
A two-part documentary series entitled ‘Absolutely Fashion: Inside British Vogue’, which will be aired on BBC Two on September 8 from 9pm to 10pm, aims to give viewers ‘a fascinating insight into an ever-changing industry’.
Over nine months, Richard gives his personal observations as he witnesses how the magazine is put together – from the catwalk shows to front cover shoots.
Fresh from the September 2015 shows, Richard meets Alexandra Shulman, who has been Editor-In-Chief of the title for the past 24 years. He also gains access to shoots with some of fashion’s most famous figures including Edie Campbell, Mario Testino and Kate Moss (who has appeared on more British Vogue covers than anyone else).
BBC Two said: ‘In a significant year for the magazine, with a raft of special events and a bumper centenary issue, this series observes a world not just intent of celebrating the glories of the past, but also facing up to the challenges of an uncertain future.’
