Vogue Magazine Archive - trial

Proquest has set us up with a trial to Vogue Archive. “The Vogue Archive contains the entire run of Vogue magazine (US edition), from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution colour page images.

Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included. The Vogue Archive preserves the work of the world's greatest fashion designers, stylists and photographers and is a unique record of American and international fashion, culture and society from the dawn of the modern era to the present day.

This archive is an essential for Fashion, Photography, Gender studies, Design, Textiles, and Business (branding, marketing, talent management) students and researchers.

ProQuest have worked closely with Condé Nast to create separate designated searchable fields for Fashion Item (e.g. kimono, Breton jacket, scoop neckline), Person Pictured, Company/brand, Designer Name, Material (e.g. chiffon, wool, taffeta), Trend, Colour and Print (e.g. batik, gingham, Liberty).”

The trial runs until 10th November 2011 and can be accessed from: here
