Get to know more about Carine Roitfeld and watch this space for more of our Mother’s Day 2017 coverage.
The world of high fashion is a realm where the most elaborate fantasies of style and beauty come to life on the runways of major fashion capitals or in the pages of upscale glossy magazine titles. In the case of the latter, the glamorous photographs of models dressed in stunning clothes that we see on the pages of fashion magazines are the work of some the finest image architects on the planet. The work of fashion designers everywhere requires considerable legitimacy and promotion in order for consumers to purchase their garments, and one of the best ways to achieve this is when their clothing is featured in a top fashion magazine. The job of a fashion editor is to take clothes straight from the runway and work with a team of creatives in order to produce a series of photos which capture a story that evokes a certain kind of sartorial fantasy for the reader. And of the many fashion editors who are venerated by chic fashionistas everywhere, Carine Roitfeld is probably their number one champion when it comes to the art of high fashion imagery.
