Please make a little time to check out a fashion database we have for a month’s trial until the end of May.

• It is called The Vogue Archive and comprises all the pages of all the American Vogue US edition from 1892-present as a fully searchable database.

• Images are reproduced in high-resolution colour page by page.

• More than 400,000 pages are included, constituting a treasure trove of the work from the greatest designers, photographers, stylists and illustrators of the 20th and 21st centuries.

• Vogue is a unique record of American and international popular culture that extends beyond fashion.

Key Subject Areas are

• Fashion

• Journalism

• Media and culture

• Photography

• Popular culture

Let Catherine Drake or Jenny Godfrey know what you think of it and whether it would be of use to courses here at Cardiff Met.

Here is the link.
