Welcome to the September issue, a fashionable first stop for the truly stylish.

When it comes to fashion magazines, the September issue marks a defining moment in the calendar. It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work*, where we filter all the inspiration we’ve seen at the shows into one tightly edited issue for you to savour all season long. This month, we bring you an issue crammed full of inspiring style. Our fashion editor, Sive O’Brien, and her trusty assistants have been hard at work making this an issue worthy of your hard-earned cash. I don’t know about you, but when the weather changes, I like to be prepped and ready for my wardrobe to change too. As much as I hate to say adieu to lighter layers, I can’t wait to embrace cold-weather staples and a brand new colour palette. Boots are top of my wishlist, so it’s no coincidence we’ve highlighted some of the best of the new season (perks of the job and all that). Coats a little more your style? Don’t worry, there are lots of other autumnal updates to inspire and admire, as well as top tips from some of Ireland’s most stylish women. Forget new pencil cases, this season is all about embracing new clothing trends you’ll want to buy now and wear forever.

We also celebrate some of the new faces breaking into the modelling world in ?Bright Young Things?. We travelled to London to meet the Irish models making a mark on an industry that’s notoriously difficult to crack. You might not recognise their faces now, but trust me, you soon will.

In true IMAGE style, we have some fascinating features and gripping interviews to help balance out the sartorial overload. One of my favourite features this month is ?Game Changers?, which highlights some of the most innovative and hard-working Irish businesswomen out there today. Now if that doesn’t inspire you, nothing will.

Enjoy the issue.
