Windles are in Vogue

Print group proud to help with Meghan Markle’s issue of iconic fashion mag

MEGHAN Markle’s guest editing of the September issue of iconic fashion mag Vogue has made national headlines this week – but the Duchess of Sussex’s work wouldn’t have been seen without Windles Group.

For the environmentally-conscious printers known for their greetings card speciality were picked to produce the glossy cover for the mag at their Thame plant using specially-made material, print inks and varnish combinations.
Divided into 16 boxes, Meghan’s front cover artwork shows 15 inspiring women, including teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern with the last box taken by a mirror aimed at encouraging the reader to use their own platforms to force changes.
Meghan, who gave birth to her first child with husband Prince Harry in May, spent seven months working on the issue and chose not to put herself on the cover, the magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Enninful told the BBC, as she felt it would be a "boastful thing to do".
The duchess said she hoped people would be as inspired as she was by the women featured in the magazine, and Buckingham Palace added that the edition, entitled Forces For Change, highlights “trailblazing change makers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers”.
Michelle Mills, Windles’ business development and marketing manager, said: “We’re delighted to have been chosen for this honour which recognises the skills and expertise of the team here. We love producing work like this that really pushes what’s achievable in print.
“This is the first time we've worked on the Vogue magazine and it’s great that this is a particularly high-profile issue which sits well with Windles’ environmental principles which are also helping to change the world.”
