    Thanks for the Fabien interview, Benn. He simply makes common sense as to why the print industry is gasping its last breath. It astounds me how the majority of editors cannot see what logical people can.

    And this from WWD should be printed and hung on every creative’s space as a reminder to what fascism does to individuality:

    WWD: We can blame President Trump for a lot. But this is coming from woke cancel culture. It’s not coming from the Trump side.

    ^ I don't entirely disagree with this to be fair.

    A lot of truths spoken in Fabien's interview with WWD. And as much as it's upsetting to hear that he won't be working in print anytime soon, he has a totally realistic perspective on magazines at the moment. I knew that when he left Interview it would be game over for my own interest in them.

    Although I don't really understand how you can use magazines from the 50s-90s as a feasible contrast for the very recent and current issue of mediocrity that is permeating print in 2019. That has only been occurring in maybe the last decade or so and has been particularly exacerbated in the last few. I'm talking losing major readership, copies sitting on the newsstand and people not really being there anymore - in addition to the desperate ties to every and each social media platform.

    Thanks Benn98 :flower:.

    Sports Illustrated is rapidly disintegrating. If it can happen to an institution like SI, it can happen to any US mag..

    I have a doubt, Gisele is the model who had the most covers of Vogue in 1 year right? 37 right?

    Sad, I thought she was doing such a great job with the digital content in recent years. Really pushed Vogue as a brand into a new territory.

    All the OGs are slowly but surely leaving the magazine...

    Either Sally left because she doesn't see a future in magazines and wants to do more contributing work elsewhere, or she's getting ready to snatch a lucrative position. No one leaves without a plan.

    That was very likely a contributor to her decision (or even the main one), but I don't think anyone at a glossy would just leave because they felt powerless at their job without first securing a back up. I'm sure she has planned her next career move and will resurface somewhere nice soon. :smile:

    Not really, she left Vogue years ago to be the EIC of T Magazine, then came back with a different role.

    Its not necessarily fascism, its any totalitarian ideology really. How many cases of cancel culture do you see coming from the right? Almost zero. This culture has made its way into many US magazine publications as well. I wonder how many people actually buy into their political articles, because its a bunch of crazy reactionary crap.

    Nobody can think logically because everyone in them is illogically trying to keep their jobs. In this desperate attempt its all about outrage, and searching for the next person to cancel next, or the next insane view to one up.

    And I dare say that whoever runs the publication part of this website also plays into such shenanigans.

    They behave the same as the culture-crushing Red Guards...

    That WWD bravely stating it’s the SJW cancel culture mob that’s lynching anyone that doesn’t toe their conservative, homogenized, strict, socialist ideology is such a moment for a fashion entity, a s far as I’m concerned. A very brave truth of a statement to make in a time when huge conglomerates kowtow to these fascist (new) Red Guards killing creativity like a plague.

    ^^^ Then SJW should be fighting these issues in the political arena against the proper opponent-- not fingerwag their petty shallow virtual signalling demands on the fashion industry.
