Overview

The Vogue Archive contains the entire run of Vogue magazine (US edition) from 1892 to the present day, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. More than 400,000 pages are included, constituting a treasure trove of the work from the greatest designers, photographers, stylists, and illustrators of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Vogue is a unique record of American and international popular culture that extends beyond fashion. The Vogue Archive is an essential primary source for the study of fashion, gender, and modern social history – past, present, and future.

The database will allow fashion design and photography students to find inspirational images, but will also cater for academic study. Fashion marketing students will be able to research the history of a brand identity by viewing every advertisement for a brand such as Revlon, Coty, Versace, or Chanel between specified dates. Researchers in cultural studies and gender studies will be able to explore themes such as body image, gender roles, and social tastes from the 1890s to the present.

ProQuest's unique partnership with Condé Nast means that the latest issue will be added each month with no embargo period. Users can conduct powerful searches to reveal results in all text, captions, and titles throughout the magazine, including advertisements, covers and fold-outs.
