American Vogue at the British Library

Exciting news for fashion designers, the American Vogue archive is now available digitally in our British Library Reading Rooms, including the Business & IP Centre. It features every issues of American Vogue from 1892 to the present day, spanning over 400,000 pages.

You can find inspiration from style icons from past and present, from Suzy Parker and Jean Shrimpton to Kate Moss.  Explore the history of fashion brands such as Chanel, Elizabeth Arden and Revlon over 120 years.

The archive allows you to search across the issues by designer, contributor, type of garment or even fabric. Individual covers, advertisements, photo shoots and fold-outs have been pulled out as separate reports for you to search.

Hello..For years I have been trying to locate a page in Vogue archives..year 1970 or 1971..I was a leather clothing/bag and belt designer at the time and Vogue did a full page on one of my bags..I would very much like to see it again..Thank you for your time..

I'm glad it was useful! You can also see the print copies of British Vogue in our Reading Rooms which would definitely cover that period.
