Fall Fashion Magazine Weigh-In
Twenty-one pounds, 4,628 pagesâ€”and not as fat as last year.
Itâ€™s that time of year again: back-to-school shopping, barbeques, U.S. Open tennis andâ€”for the bulk of the female magazine buying publicâ€”fall fashion issues! For the second year in a row, FOLIO: went to the local newsstand, grabbed a stack of the biggest, fattest womenâ€™s fall fashion issues and weighed themâ€”all 4,628 pages, some 21 poundsâ€”in the Red 7 Media mailroom. We also counted the ad pages, number of ad pages before the editorâ€™s letter (Vogue: 308!) to give a broad picture of how fashion magazine publishers are treating their fall books. (Spoiler: theyâ€™re not as fat as last year.)
