It has become engrained as an aphorism in modern-day speech. The beacon that is this international phenomenon has had a song written about it by Madonna, has inspired an on-screen characterisation of American Editor in Chief, figuresmagazine Anna Wintour, with Meryl Streep dressed in Prada, and has produced the holy grail of fashion and beauty intelligence known as Voguepedia; an encyclopaedia of world-renowned designers, models, photographers and brands.
And now Vogue has its own annual Festival, attracting devout, fresh-faced fashionistas who are eager to flaunt their idiosyncrasies. commitmagazine
Set inside the Royal Festival Hall on London’s Southbank, the seemingly steep ticket fee grants its visitors access not only to the live talks, but the vast number of other activities including walking a catwalk, starring on your own Vogue cover, watching a styling session, getting a quick beauty makeover or browsing the Vogue shop full of one-off treats. youngmagazines
The two-day event welcomes an impressive line up of the industry’s most envied and admired, including Manolo Blahnik, Valentino Garavani and Sarah Burton. Led by a Vogue editor, influential industry figures take to the Vogue stage and participate in hourly panel discussions exploring topics that seek to inspire and invite subtle envy among their audiences. Tales of wrapping up a swimwear shoot at midday to enjoy a lazy afternoon on a sandy beach in the Caribbean had its audience longing for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s lifestyle. leadersmagazine
In such proximity to fashion’s elite, the intimate setting fosters a sense of solidarity, a sort of cheerleader team spirit, which has audiences nodding, laughing and clapping along. The insider experiences of life as a young model, as shared by Karlie Kloss and Edie Campbell, brought to life the pressures of such perceived privileges, transforming these sylph-like creatures into the girls next door.

In a biased world where advertisers are the life blood of fashion magazines, it is enriching to unite industry’s leaders and their followers in thought-provoking conversations where content is not crafted to flatter the advertisers but is cultivated out of spontaneous interactions. Such an occurrence seems somewhat unique to the Vogue Festival and would perhaps be difficult to mirror in a less inviting space. It is understandable then that the fash pack swarm to this event and the Festival is now into its third year. With the support of leading industry figures and a sponsorship deal with Harrods, the rumours are already circulating as to whether there will be a Vogue Festival 2015 and who will be welcomed to the signature, lilac-hazed Vogue stage. Alexandra, if you need my vote, Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington please.
