We have long been major fans of fashion and style bible British Vogue. It was only upon flicking through the latest February Issue did we discover something we never would have realised or have ever given any thought to – that Vogue is celebrating 100 years in the publishing world.
Fashion is a notoriously tough industry and there are not many magazines that can claim 100 years in existence. Launched in 1916, when the first world war stopped the importation of US Vogue to this side of the pond, British Vogue was an immediate hit. While many initially thought that style and less heavy affairs unrelated to the war wouldn’t resonate with the British audience, the opposite was in fact true with many people finding relief and comfort between the glossy pages of the magazine.
Over the past century, the magazine has remained at the pinnacle of its industry, commissioning global best in class talent such as renowned photographers; Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, Juergen Teller to name but a few. And while Vogue is committed to top quality creatives, it never failed to recognise up and coming artists who were making their way through the ranks, whether they were photographers, designers or models.
A part of the Conde Nast Publishing family, Vogue is without a doubt the crown jewel of the group, with a devout following of all ages and it is rightly so that the magazine should be celebrated for its unwavering presence in the publishing world.
This February, be sure to not only pick up this month’s edition of Vogue Magazine to hear more in detail about it’s unique history in the editor’s letter by none other than Editor in Chief Alexandra Schulman but definitely make it top of your list to visit Vogue 100, A century of Style. This one off exhibition will showcase the remarkable range of photography that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916, with over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archive and international collections being shown together for the first time to tell the unqiue story of one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world.
This exhibition has been organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London in collaboration with British Vogue as part of the magazine’s centenary celebrations.
