Lunchbox/Soapbox: Kirstie Clements: Inside the Fashion Juggernaut: The good, the bad and the really ugly
In May 2012 Kirstie Clements was sacked after more than a decade in the editor’s chair at Vogue Australia. In her book The Vogue Factor (and this edition of Lunchbox/Soapbox) Clements tells the story behind the headlines, and takes us behind the scenes of the fast-changing fashion industry. She tells the truth about starving models (do they really eat tissues?), the realities for plus-size models, the glitz and glamour of the business, and the impact of the online world on magazine publishing.
