Anna Wintour's recent trip to France for the couture shows wasn't only to sit back and watch some shows but she had something else in mind too.
Only naturally- a special request was sent out - Wintour held a meeting with French government officials to discuss the issue of the governments lack of support to new and emerging talent.
According to Vogue UK, Christian Estrosi, French industry minister, agreed. "She's right". He said in a press conference later, "Everyone knows the role Anna plays in making New York a great fashion capital. My objective was to benefit from her experience."
Anna Wintour I salute you
