British Vogue, Absolutely Fashion: Inside British Vogue 2016

This year marks many momentous occasions for British Vogue with countless birthday celebrations. There was, an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, a big birthday bash in May, a cover with the Duchess of Cambridge and now this new documentary will be the cherry on top of the cake.

Vogue is always working on new ways to let its readers have an inside glimpse in to their magazine and outlook on the fashion industry.

Last year, they began season one of 'Fashion Industry Secrets' with Alexa Chung, which was followed this year by a second series 'The Future of Fashion'.

But their latest project is much bigger, they are launching a BBC2 documentary to give us access inside the 100-year-old magazine. 

Yes, for the first time in British Vogue’s history, the magazine has allowed TV cameras to film behind closed doors. Documentary filmmaker Richard Macer has spent nine months inside Vogue House and beyond while the publication prepared for, and began celebrating, its 100th birthday. 

Speaking about the filming process of the candid two-part documentary, Alexandra Shulman, Editor-in-Chief explained: “At Vogue we are more used to being behind the lens than in front of it. The process of being filmed over such a long period of time was intriguing although at times, testing.” 

Episode one picks up from the end of the spring/summer 2017 fashion shows in September 2015 and follows Shulman, fashion director Lucinda Chambers, creative director Jaime Perlman, fashion features director Sarah Harris, editor-at-large Fiona Golfar, and the wider Vogue team. 

Later on, Macer's camera follows a selection of the industry's most popular faces, Edie Campbell, Mario Testino and Kate Moss on set. 

Aspiring fashion journalists, Vogue enthusiasts or intrigued TV slobs alike, it is worth a watch.

Absolutely Fashion: Inside British Vogue, BBC Two, Thursday, September 8, 9pm.
