The September issue is the magazine world's equivalent of January, it's very own new year.
The concept of a September issue’s impact was bolstered by the eponymous 2009 documentary, following Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and former creative director Grace Coddington’s road to putting the ‘book’ together in 2009. It’s a record 840 pages and Wintour supervises the production of each one.
The September issues of fashion magazines are traditionally seen as the most important of the year because they carry the most advertising, and cover stars generally have pulled within the industry.
What About Indonesia? Does it crucial to make September’s Cover Page?
Although there are many notable fashion weeks around the world, only four are known as the "Big Four": Paris, Milan, London, and New York.
These mega fashion capitals have a significant influence on international fashion trends. They’re home to the most influential designers, the most important fashion weeks, and the most prominent fashion magazines, not to mention countless trade shows, exhibitions, and award shows.
These cities have been well-established as fashion capitals for decades, if not centuries. There is the forefront of fashion innovation and where fashion ideas take root and trends are defined.

A Note from Anindya Sukarni.
"Ada dua hal yang kontradiktif di sini. Jika generasi terdahulu masih memercayai konsep Loyalty Programme, sementara generasi milenial justru sebaliknya. Tidak ada itu namanya konsumen loyal. Mereka cenderung memilih produk karena “good product, good service and good price”.
Perubahan adalah Keniscayaan. Revolusi Industri 4.0 sebagai perkembangan peradaban modern telah kita rasakan dampaknya pada berbagai sendi kehidupan. Penetrasi teknologi yang serba disruptif, menjadikan perubahan semakin cepat, sebagai konsekuensi dari fenomena Internet of Things (IoT), big data, otomasi, robotika, komputasi awan, hingga inteligensi artifisial (Artificial Intelligence). Pada akhirnya, perubahan tersebut turut mengubah cara hidup, bekerja bahkan berkorelasi pada hubungan antar manusia.
Sebagai pemilik usaha adalah penting untuk selalu menciptakan akselerasi dinamis dengan perubahan, terutama yang berkaitan dengan kepuasan pelanggan (customer driven). Adalah penting untuk memahami karakteristik perilaku konsumen (customer behaviour), tema Winning Your Customer Through Experience Driven Commerce, rasa-rasanya memang kekinian sekali.
The expert said that ….
Slamet Sudjono, pakar Digital Marketing dari TBD-Embarking New Journey dalam satu paparannya menyatakan bahwa “Loyal Customer are our Best Friend”. Loyalitas pelanggan memiliki peran penting dalam sebuah perusahaan, mempertahankan mereka berarti meningkatkan kinerja keuangan dan mempertahankan kelangsungan hidup perusahaan. Pelanggan yang loyal merupakan aset penting bagi perusahaan dalam meningkatkan laba dan prospek prusahaan di masa datang.
Loyalitas ditunjukkan kedalam sebuah bentuk perilaku, pembelian berulang dan merekomendasikan produk perusahaan kepada orang lain. Drive and grow the brand, influence others, and love brand unconditionally. Dengan testimoni dan nilai positif yang mereka tularkan, diharapkan mampu menarik pelanggan-pelanggan baru.
What others perspective was truly the opposite: Millennials.
“Bukanlah loyalty yang berperan penting dalam keberlangsungan brand dan sebuah usaha. Mereka loyal karena sogokan-sogokan. Gift voucher belanja, voucher Gopay, free ongkir, diskon hanyalah sebagian kecil. Kalau ada barang bagus, servis bagus tetapi harga murah, kenapa enggak? Dengan adanya digital commerce, maka konsumen dapat melakukan komparasi antar produk secepat jari-jemari bermain ponsel canggih, sebelum akhirnya memutuskan untuk membeli.”, kurang lebih paparan Antonius Taufan, Founder & Managing Director TADA.
Advocacy is beyond customer loyalty. Advokasi bertujuan membangun hubungan pelanggan yang lebih dalam dengan mendapatkan tingkat kepercayaan dan komitmen dengan mengembangkan transparansi, dialog interaktif dan terbuka, kecepatan dan kemitraan bersama dengan pelanggan.
Alam bawah sadar saya seketika menjustifikasi sesuatu. Bagaimana dengan Apple? Dimana adalah umum dilihat habit orang rela mengantri, bahkan melakukan sesuatu yang kontroversi, untuk mendapatkan sebuah produk keluaran terbaru dengan “harga yang tidak adil.” Tidak adil karena, dengan spesifikasi yang sama, merek lain tidak dapat menjual diatas atau minimal setara dengan Apple.
“Mungkin bukan soal loyal nya atau advokasi, tetapi komitmen. Karena antara dua pendekatan di atas, pada akhirnya, membutuhkan komitmen dari kita. It is about commitment. “

Fittingly, two-time Grammy nominee Bebe Rexha is the new face of the contemporary sportswear brand Bebe's fall campaign created by Creative Playground. ?Outspoken about body positivity, the curvaceous performer said in talks with other clothing brands, “You hear things about your weight and your image. I think Bebe knows what I stand for and who I am. I’m very vocal about that. I love the fact that they were willing to ask a girl like me with curves who is natural. They are being inclusive. No matter what your body type is — skinny, small, thick — whatever you are, guy, girl, I think all body types are beautiful.” Tap the link to see how the singer deals with having bipolar disorder and what it is like to work with the Jonas Brothers.

A cohort with a highly creative and entrepreneurial mindset, Millenials are disruptors of industry, authority, convention and tradition. Millennials are confident, ambitious, and achievement-oriented. Color-Blocking is so common in fashion to state their personality. With a strong signature, the abstract painting, mural and graffiti will surely be appealing.
Why do fashion trends allow men to be comfortable while women don’t even get to wear functional shoes? Where all the men’s trends had two things in common, comfort and warmth, while women’s was all about the opposite.
It doesn’t really matter what shoe trends are in for men—they’re going to be some form of a comfortable flat. Fortunately for women, we’ve come one tiny step closer to the flat; kitten heels are back in style. The kitten heel is a perfect metaphor for the current state of gender equality. It’s not a full heel which, in this metaphor, stands for complete inequality, but it’s also not quite a flat. It’s almost a flat. Because we’re almost equal, but not yet.
Strappy shoes are also in for women. Strappy shoes aren’t a full shoe, because they are hanging on to your foot by a strap. The strappy shoe is literally latching on for dear life. A shoe has one job: to stay on the foot.
What about Mules? in praise of mules, fashion’s most perverse shoes. Mules are a must-have style to have in your shoe collection this season, and you can never go wrong in a pair of mules! This trendy shoe is also the perfect alternative to heels, you won't have to sacrifice style for comfort and the unique on-trend designs that suit every woman, for every occasion.
Find these three type of shoes in our upcoming collections. The 3rd line, Grafitti is exposing young millennials good vibes. Not only colour-blocking but also appealing distractions. The abstract painting, mural and graffiti. Soon. This Summer of 2019.

Issey Miyake. Born in Hiroshima, Japan, Issey Miyake in many ways was one of the original designers who paved the way for Asian designers to take centre stage in the international fashion world. Miyake began his career working at Givenchy and then started his own brand, Miyake Design Studio, in the '80s. Through experimentation, he became known for his iconic thinly pleated pieces. While he is now retired, these pieces and his legacy of being a maverick continue on.
He is known for his technology-driven clothing designs, exhibitions and fragrances, such as L'eau d'Issey, which became his most well-known product.
