Tammy's thoughts on The September Issue

What does Wallflower President Tammy think about the September Issue? Tammy's worked on HUNDREDS of shoots throughout the years and totally identifies with Grace...

"I can’t say enough about how good this documentary for anyone working in the fashion industry. I have never seen a movie about what I do that so closely exemplifies the pace of the work, the passion for the clothing and imagery, the emotional drama of being involved in this business. Grace Coddington is so real, so honest, so brilliant. When she explains why a photo is hazy or soft, and why that can make a great shot, why it makes sense, I felt like those exact words had come out of my mouth before. And when Anna slashes her editorials, removing shots that Grace feels are important, her reactions are so familiar. Losing a great shot is a little like losing a part of you. You become emotionally attached to those shots because you were there feeling it while it was happening. Of course, the movie shows Anna’s brilliance as an editor. Why there needs to be someone who is not emotionally attached to the shots, who can sit back and make that decision without batting an eye. It’s such a familiar dynamic in this business where creative people who are highly sensitive and intuitive coexist and clash. Grace steals the show, but you leave thinking about Anna’s relationship with her father and her daughter, and the little moments in the movie that reveal so much about her and the powerful position she holds."

Celebrating in style

Our women's director turns the big 3-0 today! Happy Birthday Brenda!!!  

Muse of the moment: Grace Coddington

The Wallflower team got to see an early screening of THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE last week and all we have to say is WOW!

Grace Coddington steals the show as Vogue's creative director, and the true heart of the movie.

We're equally mesmerized by her as a model back in the day...

The Wallflower Interview: Heather

Have you always wanted to model?
I've always loved fashion, and I've always been sort of fascinated by modeling but I didn't really know that much about it. People had been coming up to me the last couple of years and tell me I should do it and I finally convinced my mom to let me give it a shot!

So you dance?
Well I've been dancing since I was six. Now I dance at a school in New York and I live in the dorms there with around 60 other kids. We have about two classes a day, except just one on Saturdays. All the classes are ballet. This will be my third year dancing in New York City in the fall!

How tough is balancing school, dancing and modeling?
I'm 17, and I do online school. It's nice because it's really flexible. In the future I either want to keep dancing or model!

Favorite model? Bands?
A couple of my favorite models are Coco Rocha and Karlie Kloss because I think it's cool that they're both dancers! I really like Ali Michael too, and she's from Dallas! Oh and Julia Stegner and Ali Stephens. I have a lot of favorites! As far as music goes I really like Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Vampire Weekend, and Ash.
