UNITED KINGDOM — The September 2021 issues are now arriving on the Internet and newsstands around the globe. Magazines are bringing their A-game with eye-catching covers and statement-making editorials. Some issues even weigh more than a pound and has over hundreds of pages.
The September issue is the most important and biggest issue of the year for fashion publications. Candy Pratts Price once said, “September is the January in fashion.” September’s fall fashion issues hold a lot of weight and most luxury houses spend the most amount of advertising dollars in this particular issue. The September issue always sets the tone for the next year in fashion and culture.
If you’re a magazine lover, chances are you know how important the September issue is. A lot of time and hard work goes into it. There was a point in time, when you barely saw a woman of color on the September issue.
It used to be hard for Black and Brown women to get onto covers of magazines because “they did not sell“. Clearly, that has been proven a myth. Now more and more women of color are on the cover of mainstream magazines, including September issues. And this is beyond epic.
Let us not forget 2015, when we saw the first surge of women of color on September issues.
