How Vogue Has Changed Over Time…

27 Feb

Vogue was founded as a bi-monthly publication by Arthur Baldwin Turnure in 1892. When he died in 1909, Condé Nast picked it up and slowly began growing the publication and changed it to  a weekly magazine.  In 1960 the magazine began to appeal the youth focusing more on contemporary fashion and editorial features openly discussing sexuality. In 1973 it became a monthly publication and underwent extensive editorial and stylistic changes to respond to changes in the lifestyles of its target audience.

There has now been 12,995 issues of vogue published since the first in 1892. There are also 6 other published Vogues across the world. The look of Vogue has changed significantly since it’s first issue published in 1892, the main changes that have taken place in Vogue are the presentation, layout, imagery and change of content. Vogue’s original vision was to be social gazette for the New York’s elite. Back then it had articles reviewing plays, books, music and discussions of the societal etiquettes of the time.

The obvious changes that have been made to Vogue are the presentation and layout. The imagery is also another thing that has a big impact on what we see on today’s Vogue. Also as Vogue is at the top of the fashion magazines it will always show off what is the thing to be wearing next season, whether it is designer or high street.

Vogue magazine has influenced American society for over a hundred years. The magazine has evolved to reflect modern women. Vogue has gone through many changes and has created a market for women’s magazines.
