In partnership with The Newsette.
Sally Singer, the Creative Digital Director at Vogue.com, grew up clipping her favorite articles from the printed fashion bible and slotting them into binders to create her own version of Vogue. Some might call it a mood board, we’d call it a self-fulfilling prophecy: she eventually went on to become a longtime editor at the magazine. In 2012, after a two-year break as T Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Singer returned to Vogue to focus on the brand’s internet presence.
In this episode of Oh Boy, Leandra takes the mic from the show’s regular host, Jay Buim, to interview Singer about the exciting, changing landscape that the internet has offered the fashion industry. Funnily enough, while Singer wasn’t particularly interested in web prior to the new role (it was Anna Wintour’s idea), she was interested in story-telling — and in people and what makes them amazing.
That might be the one thing that, regardless of shifting trends in terms of clothes, publishing or the physical way in which we connect, will never change : humans continue to inspire one another, right?
Well, don’t take my word for it. Plug your headphones in and listen to the seasoned words of Sally Singer.
