“Sometimes I would buy Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more.”

–Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City)



Arthur Baldwin Turnure, the creator of Vogue, would have been pleased to witness the success that has evolved from his magazine. In 1892, Turnure constructed the influential fashion and lifestyle magazine in hopes of capturing the hearts of high-class individuals living in New York City. At the time, Vogue’s purpose was to inform its readers about trendy hang out spots as well as traditions and beliefs that were cherished amongst those with luxurious lifestyles. Not long after, the vision and content was transformed as it focused solely on women’s fashion. Conde Montrose Nast, the founder of Conde Nast Publications, made the revolutionary decision as he purchased the magazine in 1909. Nast’s perspective for the magazine will always remain legendary, as he demanded unique photographs and high editorial content.

With a solid platform to play off of, Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief since 1988, continued to uphold the magazine’s reputation of high fashion while adding in her own personal touch. She made several alterations to the magazine as well as new additions for the better of the company. Wintour is perceived as a vital source within the fashion world due to her sensational contributions within the industry. Not only does she recognize up and coming designers, but she also helped discover the CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund in order for emerging fashion designers to receive finical aid.


For more than 100 years, Vogue magazine keeps the title as the ultimate fashion guide for all women. The magazine has created international forms as well as a teen edition called- Teen Vogue. The magazine remains true to their target market of women who feel the need to be inspired. When you are analyzing each page, you are taken into a world of pure sophistication and glamour.
