The female decision-makers working for Australia’s number one magazine publisher are considered to be celebrities by the millions of their readers who are longing for the expert advice, a real authority, a role model who they can relate to and admire. People are very keen to gain insight into the intimate world of the glamorous fashion magazines and learn more about the industry secrets.
Are you also curious about the process of how these behind-the-scenes leaders have actually moved forward into the spotlight?
I think it has all started with the box-office hit The Devil Wears Prada in 2006, a story of a fresh graduate journalist who lands the job “a million girls would kill for” when she becomes the junior personal assistant to Miranda Priestly, the icy editor-in-chief of Runway fashion magazine.
U.S. Vogue editor Anna Wintour believed to have been the inspiration of the movie’s main character, shortly felt the need of releasing ‘The September Issue’, a documentary that follows her staff during the production of the September 2007 issue.
According to the critics, Anna Wintour, the real devil wearing Prada, has many similarities to Miranda Priestly’s character who “tells you what she wants and she wants it right away”. Even their offices look-alike. Check out these photos comparing Wintour’s office to Miranda Priestly’s in The Devil Wears Prada:
The movie was released in Australia in 2009, inspiring Foxtel to premiere the ACP reality show ‘Park Street’ placing the Australian women’s magazines and their editors under the microscope in 2011.
Today in 2012, the ’30 Days of Fashion & Beauty’ series taking place last month were also promoted by the beautiful and successful editors of ACP Magazines, who shared their intimate industry secrets with us within the frames of exclusive countrywide styling workshops. They are hard-working, gorgeous and successful, perfect role models to anyone dreaming about a career in fashion.
