Corset Laced Mannequins in Vogue!

How excited I was when a twitter chum (lucylovesfabric) reminded me that the November edition of Vogue was out! Do you remember I said my mannequins were going to be included in the Nov edition?  How could I have forgotten. I rushed out and bought my £4 copy of the heavy glossy fashion magazine. 
Back in August I ran about like a mad thing, packing two vintage mannequins for a trip to London and a photoshoot.

There are lots and lots of luscious adverts (and I mean lots!), a few articles about either the young and beautiful or the old and rich and as one would expect some articles about fashion, makeup and jewellery.

 Louis Vuitton doing a Mad Men homage!!
 Dior and a beautiful pink rose and some very expensive jewellery
 Juicy Couture ~ my children liked the bunnies!
Mulberry with a stunning interior. I could see my Celia Wasp Waisted in here
 There was even a vintage mannequin in an advert for Ikea above
 BUT
 not my mannequins! 
No they didn't make this edition.  They were cut! 
Of course I am disappointed but such is life.  At least I have an opportunity to do a bit of blog cheating by photographing a glossy mag! Many thanks to Annette and Georgina.  Hope we can work together again in the future.
Now back to work!

How disappointing - but have you looked carefully at the editorial fashion spreads? Or were you told it was for an advertisement? I shall hie me to Smiths asap and flick through a copy if it's not shrink wrapped!
Maybe next month...

What a let-down for you. Who knows what happened. I have worked in newsrooms and know that last minute hitches or unexpected editorial decisions can create this kind of situation easily. But I'm sure they won't want to miss having your gorgeous mannequins on their glossy pages. Good luck for next time.

Oh what a shame your mannequins weren't included :(
Let's hope they include them at some point in the future!

Thanks for all your kind thoughts. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the other mags keep me in! Lucyxx

Such a shame Lucy...maybe they will get used in the future?...
Such lovely photos in Vogue generally, but I remember being disappointed by the amount of adverts in them years ago, so stopped buying once it was no longer a requirement at college...(A VERY long time ago now! -and I've not bought a copy since!)

Expect you're really busy with Xmas orders, so I'll leave you to get on with them!
