Slater was a magazine for the sophisticated and fashion-conscious woman. It was one of Wilhelmina's many attempts to take over MODE magazine and Meade Publications. After realizing that she would never be the Editor-in-Chief for MODE she decided to make her own magazine. She even came to the MODE offices to try and persuade the staff to work for her magazine. Unfortunately her plan came to a halt due to a lack of funding. After giving up the magazine she went onto a new plan to have Bradford Meade's baby.
