Big data meets consumer insights. Experience WGSN.
British Vogue is set to reveal its inner workings in a BBC documentary to mark the centenary of the magazine.
The decision follows a number of fly-on-the-wall magazine insider view films and TV shows, including The September Issue about the US edition and its two stars (Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington), as well as the recent TV series about Tatler.
The UK’s public service broadcaster said the filmmakers have been granted “unprecedented access” to the magazine and its staff.
The project looks promising. It will be shown next year in two hour-long programmes and is being produced by Lightbox, founded by Simon Chinn who won Academy Awards for Man on Wire and Searching for Sugarman.
The makers say this isn’t just a lightweight look at a fashion magazine but will explore the processes and the people behind the decisions and will ask what the role of fashion is in the 21st century, why it remains important, and show how the fashion industry works.
