Vogue Editors Unite in Tokyo
Vogue’s top dogs have united in Japan to support Tokyo’s Fashion Night Out. While the 17 Vogue editors are often rumoured to be in catty competition, they put away their claws to pose for this once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. As Australian editor Kirstie Clements put it “a rather momentous occasion in the world of Vogue“.
Of course, ultimate Queen Bee and editor of US Vogue, Anna Wintour, took the front and centre position. It was the first time in 20 years Wintour had visited Japan. However, all in the name of a good cause! A portion of the night’s proceeds will be donated to relief efforts and victims of the Japan earthquake. The cause encouraged 400 retailers and designers to paricipate in the event, making Tokyo’s fashion night out the biggest so far.
Fashion’s Night Out is celebrated in major cities all over the world. Launched by Ms Wintour two years ago, it invites us shopaholics to enjoy an all-night retail marathon with some of the world’s top designers. You might remember from Sydney’s Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, held in September.
