For five years Vig Morgan has worked on Fashionistas, a magazine devoted to telling readers nothing about celebrity fashion. Vig survived a maniac boss and is now an associate editor in a pool of killer sharks also known as peers.
A new Editor in Chief Marguerite with a zillion other names lifted from her ex spouses Holland takes charge. Ruthless Jane McNeil is irate because she felt the job should have been hers. Other associates want Vig to be the point of the revolution because publisher Alex Keller owes her for what she did for his sister. Business life could not prove more meaningful for Vig as her work proves Seinfeld had purpose.
FASHIONISTAS is an amusing insider’s skewing of the publishing industry. The story line is humorous and at times very satirical especially when the heroine provides vigor to the tale. Vig is a delightful character while the support cast will leave the audience shaking their heads. Lynn Messina delightful moves Office Space from a financial realm to the publishing world with the same jabbing shots that will mean the author needs to succeed as a novelist because retreat rights across the bridge seem nuked.
