Vogue Archive

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

• Textiles

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.
