Vogue and the City

For all you folk curious to see if the hit movie, The Devil Wears Prada ,was really based on true facts you should be pleased to know that your curiosity will soon be satiated. A&E Indie Films is smack in the middle of filming coverage for their feature-length documentary on the making of Vogue September 2007 - the magazine's largest tome.

Fashion Week Daily reported - "The cameras were rolling at a tea party Lauren duPont and Amanda Brooks threw for Thakoon Panichgul at Bergdorf Goodman last Thursday, where one of the film’s field producers revealed that 500 total hours of coverage will be filmed, with just an hour-and-a-half making the final cut".

I seriously wonder where the other 498-and-a-half hours will go - you tube, spin offs, reality show, ebay.....

Every single fashion industry person, from the aspiring journalist to the retired design veteran is anxiously awaiting the premier (no matter what they say). Who isn't the least bit curious about what really happens behind those glass windows on the 12th floor of 4 Times Square? The premier is slated for 2008, exact date is still to be determined.
