This week we are planning our August issue which features the new-season collections. We’ve been working out how to reflect what we saw on the catwalk in the pages of ELLE. Who are the photographers? Who are the models? Who are the new and established designers we want to include? At the same time, I am editing and reading features and fashion for our July issue, the pages of which are being designed now. An unusually tidy editor’s desk. This is a proof of the June cover star interview. At least four people read a proof before our sub-editors send it to the printer.
