Former Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman may have left British Vogue in 2017 after 25 years at the glossy, but she's not completely closing that chapter of her life yet. On Wednesday, Deadline announced that Shulman is teaming up with former Editor-at-Large Fiona Golfar and production company Bad Wolf to create "Gold Dust Nation," a new TV show based on British Vogue in the '90s.

"It's wonderful to have the opportunity to bring to life the realities of the world of fashion publishing in a series that will have total authenticity," Shulman told Deadline. "We will be able to showcase the real issues and real stories that occur when you combine huge creativity with human emotions and dilemmas set in a backdrop of the changing times of recent history."

Using the publication as a backdrop, the series is intended to "tell the story of the 1990s through the prism of the British monthly," according to Deadline, while also tracking Britain's economic progress and the ways that fashion reflected and responded to those changes.

Golfar, who, like Shulman, worked at British Vogue for a quarter century, described "Gold Dust Nation" as a show "about a group of people finding their place in this world of perceived glamour."

"It is a show about love and loyalty, treachery and creativity, beauty and body image. Can these co-exist when there is so much at stake in the highly charged world of fashion magazines?" she asked Deadline. "Between us, Alexandra and I have seen it all, from the boardroom to the bedroom, there is never a dull moment in the world of fashion."

No word yet as to when the new show is expected to air, but watch this space for updates.
