Anna Wintour stands not only for the “Vogue” but for the trends of international designers. “The September Issue” looks behind the facades of the glamorous catwalks.
When the international top designers send their models over the catwalks of the world, then always under the critical eye of a woman: Anna Wintour. As editor-in-chief of the American edition of the “Vogue”, she has been deciding for more than two decades, which is becoming a trend and what is not.
Director R.J. Cutler shows the “Pontine der Modewelt” in an exciting portrait and documents with “The September Issue” the emergence of the most important issue of the year. This is not just fashion, but the MODetrends of tomorrow. And they are shown every spring and autumn on the fashion weeks of the five most important Modemetropolises of the world:
New York – the world capital of fashion
In 1943, it was held for the very first time: New York Fashion Week, the mother of all Fashion Weeks. And even today, the Modespektakel opens the dazzling series of fashion weeks every February and September, followed by the European Fashion Metropolis. The catwalks are as colorful as on the streets of the city.
The palette ranges from elegant to extravagant. In addition to established American labels from Calvin Klein, Donna Karan to Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs, many emerging young designers, such as Alexander Wang and Jason Wu, have a modern look that never sleeps. If you want to adapt to fashion, you will soon find it in the many boutiques and vintage shops in the Lower East Side.
Parisian chic – elegant and feminine
The word fashion alone comes from the French, the fashionable heart of France has always been striking in Paris. Here, traditional fashion houses such as Dior, Chanel or Louis Vuitton have their headquarters and conquer the whole (fashion) world with their haute couture. But not only does it have an international reputation: On the “Prêt à Porter” fashion show in Porte de Versailles, the international fashion elite meets every year to create everyday fashion in the style of Hermès or J.P. Gaultier to admire and admire.
For shopping fans, it is not just a short trip to Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the city’s finest shopping street. Boulevard Haussmann also offers two top addresses for true shopping pleasure with the Nobel shopping centers Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. The necessary small money provided.
Milan – so dresses the (men) world
What is hovering over the catwalks during Milan’s fashion week is becoming a global trend. Especially in the area of men’s fashion, the Italian fashion metropolis ahead of Paris, London and co. But the fashionable ladies’ world is also looking forward to Milan during the fashion week, when Gucci, Versace, Prada and co.
Located in the center of the city between Via Manzoni, Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and via Sant’Andrea, the boutiques of editors such as Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Laura Biagiotti invite you to the luxury of the “Quadrilatero della Moda” Shopping.
London – between luxury and vintage
The mini-skirt was invented in the Sixties in London, and in the ’70s and’ 80s fashionable Vivienne Westwood brought the punk rock to the catwalks of the world, and even today, trends are still being born in the British metropolis.
In addition to traditional fashion houses such as Burberry and DAKS, various newcomer talents determine the London fashion world. Their creations are inspired by the street style of the city, which is a true mecca for fashion freaks with fashionable trend shops, extended shopping miles and iconic flea markets. In Oxford Street, for example, the legendary department store Selfridge, modemist and trendsetters are attracted by numerous fashion chains, but on the famous Camden Market you will find almost everything your heart desires.
Berlin – creative tension field for young designers
Berlin has long been regarded as a world capital of denim, street and urbanwear in specialist circles. The reputation of Bread & Butter, the most important modem in this area, which takes place two times a year before the impressive backdrop of the shut down Tempelhof airport, echoes far beyond the city limits.

Berlin labels such as Michael Michalsky, Lala Berlin, C’est tout or Kaviar Gauche now bring their fashion to man and woman worldwide.
