Vogue has been around for 119 years and now the fashion bible is opening the vaults and giving readers the opportunity to flip through that rich history through their newly launched Vogue Archive…for a cool yearly subscription rate of US$1575. Obviously, the third item on my 12 Days of Christmas Countdown wish list is a subscription to Vogue Archive.
The site includes a searchable archive of 119 years worth of Vogue issues (dating back to 1892 and including 400,000 pages) aimed at fashion, design and marketing professionals. The archive allows users to search by brand, designer, model and photographer and sort results by articles, images, cover or ads. Well worth the price to have access to such an amazingly useful searchable fashion resource.
Vogue also launched Voguepedia, an free online fashion encyclopedia that includes the “histories of all the designers and all the contributors and figures that Vogue has celebrated and embraced through the century,” said Vogue‘s international editor-at-large Hamish Bowles. Perfect for the fashion lover with a smaller budget.
