About the Film
The September Issue received its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, where it won an award for excellence in documentary cinematography. Vogue has been the most powerful and respected fashion magazine in the world for decades, and each year the journal devotes a fall issue to the designs and designers that will be influential in the coming year. The September 2007 issue became the most important in the magazine’s long history. Filmmaker R.J. Cutler was given unprecedented access to Vogue’s creative team as the issue was being prepared. The documentary focuses on editor Anna Wintour as she visits the annual Fashion Week shows, accepts or dismisses the latest creations of the biggest names in fashion, works with the models, photographers, and writers who help bring her vision to the page.
