    Before It’s in Fashion, It’s in Vogue

    We would have our favorite actors and actresses quoting “Made it into vogue”. Let’s know all about this publication and the history behind it.

    Vogue is a very popular American fashion and lifestyle publication. It was started in 1892 as a quarterly high-society periodical for New York City’s social elite, produced by Arthur Baldwin Turnure, and covered news of the local social scene. 

    Condé Nast Publications founder Condé Montrose Nast purchased Vogue in 1909 and converted it into a women’s fashion magazine focusing on beauty, poise, and etiquette.

    Vogue quickly gained a reputation for its striking pictures and strong editorial standards. Nast hired the best illustrators and photographers of the time, who created dependably sophisticated and occasionally groundbreaking magazine covers. 

    Vogue, for example, was one of the first magazines to print a color photograph on its cover in 1932. The magazine changed the image of female models in the 1960s, discarding shapely proportions in favor of slim, gender-neutral shapes. The first African American model was featured on the cover of Vogue in August 1974.

    Anna Wintour became the editor of Vogue in 1988, and she quickly altered the magazine’s covers by emphasizing the woman’s body rather than simply her face, and by commonly utilizing Hollywood actresses rather than traditional fashion models, igniting an international trend. In the United States, Wintour founded Teen Vogue (2003) and Men’s Vogue (2005–08). 

    She and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) co-founded the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2003, which provided financial assistance and business coaching to the “next generation” of American fashion designers.

    Hence, Vogue has been a global success, with both ordinary and special editions produced in countries all over the world. One of the most well-known fashion publications in the world, it has had a significant impact on the development of the fashion magazine industry and continues to influence present fashion trends. Vogue was dubbed “high fashion’s bible” by The New York Times in 2009.
