Our Clothing, Textiles & Material Culture subject guide is home to fashion resources. The Vogue Archive is just one of the many gems here. It features the complete run of Vogue (US edition) from 1892 to the current month reproduced in high resolution, colour images. It preserves the works of the world’s greatest designers, stylists and photographers, providing a unique historical record of American and International fashion, culture and society.
The Vogue Archive gives you every page, advertisement, cover and fold out. They include rich indexing, enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand name.
