Australian magazine queen Deborah Thomas will tonight launch Kirstie Clements’ much anticipated book, The Vogue Factor, at a Champagne-studded celebration in Surry Hills.
Thomas, whose list of high-profile roles include Bauer Media’s current head of brand development and public affairs, a judge on Celebrity Apprentice, local councillor for the suburb of Woollahra and former editor of the Australian Women’s Weekly, is also a long time friend of the ex-Vogue editor.
Following her blunt dismissal from NewsLifeMedia in May last year, after a career spanning 25 years and 13 as editor of Vogue, Clements tells the story behind the headlines, and takes us behind the scenes of a fast changing industry.
“From her humble beginnings growing up in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney to her brilliant career as a passionate and fierce custodian of the world’s most famous luxury magazine brand, Clements lifts the lid on her Vogue world, a universe that brims with dazzling celebrities, fabulous lunches, exotic locales and of course, outrageous fashion,” a media release from Melbourne University Publishing said today.
Guests will sip on Mo√´t Chandon and Belvedere vodka cocktails while getting their copies signed at Surry Hills’ Japanese restaurant, Toko, from 5:30pm onwards.
The Vogue Factor hits bookstores today.
