I VOGUE magazine, established in 1892 as a social gazette for New York high society, became the preeminent American fashion publication when it was acquired and re-designed by Conde Nast in 1909. A publishing genius who had previously worked for Collier's Magazine, he transformed VOGUE into the bible of contemporary fashion. While HARPER'S BAZAAR (originally Bazar) had been around longer (since 1867) and mixed fashion with other articles and features of interest to women, VOGUE concentrated fully on fashion and, partly due to the effects of the depression and WWII on the French fashion industry, featured and encouraged the development of American fashion designers and houses. VOGUE expanded into many foreign editions, British and French VOGUE being particularly influential, as well as offering patterns and special publications on sewing and knitting. Conde Nast died in 1942, but today his publishing empire includes Glamour, Allure, W, Self, GQ, Details, House and Garden, The New Yorker and other successful magazines. VOGUE provides a history of women's ideals, style and fashions during America's transition into today's modern society.
