If fashion is a religion. Then Vogue is the bible.

We've never really talked fashion in Sparks. But I think this 'coming soon' is gonna be quite a big one, looking at the overwhelming response of 'The Devil wears Prada' in the women/fashion world. I think partially it's because a minority of women has finally achieved equality. As high fashion moves forward, feminism becomes a thing in the past. Can you imagine, last year (or was it year before last), the covers of Vogue's September issue held the publication's highest recorded number of advertisements. That issue was close to 700 pages if I could recall clearly! Suddenly, ads were no longer ads. They were the artistic showcase, a photographic journey, an embodiment of what's gonna hit the both the fashion conscious and the art world in the coming year. As someone rightfully said it - September is the January in fashion.

Anna Wintour. The most powerful figure in the fashion world, yet isn't exactly famous famous (at least to consumers' mind). It's interesting to see how she helms and drives that side of the world.

Let's get inspired. Watch and learn.
