In today's glimpse into what life at Vogue is like, WWD discusses what's really going on behind the scenes of that humungous, free fashion show on Fashion's Night Out. Not only did the Editor's Letter in the September issue thank staffers whom "became acquainted with conquering adversity, too, curtailing their holiday plans to work on the event", WWD reveals that for selected fall looks to be included, they either needed to be loaned to the magazine for three months (allowing no other media outlets to utilize them), or entirely reproduced. And, apparently, some outfits that succumbed to the tedious steps for inclusion still got rejected after all of their work. Now there's one phone call we wouldn't want to make. [WWD]
