Matt W. Moore - Parallel Universe

Artist and graphic designer Matt W. Moore debuted his latest exhibit in San Paulo Brazil just last week stating that his source of inspiration came directly from the city itself. Traveling to the vibrant city for one month in preparation, Moore initially had no concrete plans or ideas for the collection of art, but stated that after spending time in Brazil’s largest city the solo project came together after absorbing the Brazilian culture. Full of vibrant colors and geometric shapes, the Parallel Universe series of artwork are entirely done with spray paint Moore’s favorite ingredient for his artwork.

‘The September Issue’ is the highly anticipated documentary movie that takes a look behind the scene of Vogue magazine and its infamous Editor in Chief Anna Wintour. The documentary chronicles the events leading up the September 2007 issue of Vogue, September being the beginning of the fashion year. Accurately and interestingly depicted in the trailer below, not only does The September Issue gives Vogue readers and fashionistas alike the unique opportunity to see the inner workings of the popular publication, but more importantly it gives them the chance to watch the magnificence that is Anna Wintour beyond  perceptions of her behavior depicted in movies such as The Devil Wears Prada.

Directed by R.J. Cutler and recipient of the Excellence in Cinematography Award for a US Documentary ate the Sundance Film Festival in January 2008, the film takes us behind the scene of fashion weeks, on photo shoots, and in the most sacred of closed door meetings at Vogue.  Being slated as the real The Devil Wears Prada, the movie shows us exacty why Anna Wintour is “like Madonna” as designer Thakoon Panichgul says in the trailer with obvious reverence.

With appearances by Anna’s colleagues Andre Leon Talley, and super stylist Grace Coddington The September Issue is loaded with designers, models, and clothes that would put a tear in any fashionistas eyes.  R.J. Cutler hit the nail on the head with this one ladies, he offers us a privileged peek into a world many dream of but rarely ever see. I for one, can’t wait!

Omni Media, questioning if Luxury sneakers was equivalent to the how cool it use to be to have a Nike Air Force 1 or a Nike Dunk.
