It’s August, which in the fashion world means one thing: The September issues of magazines are starting to roll in.
These editions are the biggest of the year as they herald the beginning of fall fashion, and magazines pour major resources into making sure they feature the collections we’ll all want to get our hands on in the months ahead.
For magazine editors, there’s a lot riding on the September issue: Not only is it an opportunity to feature the best pieces from fall runways, but the issue is always packed with high-paid ads. With the hope that big celebrities will translate to big magazine sales, we’re already seeing familiar faces like Karlie Kloss, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Swift fronting titles like Glamour, Elle U.K., and Vanity Fair.
