Remember 'The September Issue', the documentary chronicling the production of Vogue's you-guessed-which-month issue? It seems the film, which received raves at Sundance, is now one of the fashion industry's hottest commodities.
Promotional copies of Anna Wintour's movie are embargoed, and besides a packed screening at the MoMA, no further preview nights are scheduled. This leaves only a few elite editors and designers in possession of a copy. Members of the fashion elite have stooped to bootlegging and have held private screenings everywhere from New York to a hotel room in Moscow.
So what's the reaction? "LOVE!" says an editor who spoke to The Cut on the condition of anonymity (hey, no one wants to be sued for buying a phony copy). "I can quote it scene by scene."
