British Vogue Set to Educate Children
Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue, has launched a program for children to help them understand the process of creating a magazine editorial. This is a part of the ongoing Health Initiative launched by Vogue last year. “As Editor of Vogue, I am frequently asked about the influence and messages the images in the magazine send to our readers about body image,” said Shulman in a statement. “Our mission in Vogue’s fashion pictures is to inspire and entertain while showing the clothes created by many highly talented designers. They are created with this intention in mind, not to represent reality. The problem, if there is a problem, comes when people judge themselves and their appearance against the models they see on the pages of a magazine and then feel that in some way they fall short.”
