Chelsea Library as part of its special fashion collection has copies of Vogue Magazine, going back to the mid 1920s.
We have blogged several times about our fashion collection: Vogue covers, Japanese Winter kimonos and Chinese Lotus slippers. And as our Christmas Vogue post was so popular we thought why not say Happy New Year with some amazing images from Vogue. It’s certainly a stylish way to welcome 2013!
The special Vogue millenium issue in December 1999 reviewed a century of style.
The millenium issue also predicts future trends. Do you think we’ll be wearing outfits like this in seven years time?
Please don’t think we only have back issues of Vogue at Chelsea Library! Bringing us right up to the present, the January 2013 issue brings us into the digital age with their review of the year which is available online only.
So Happy New Year from us. Remember- nothing beats looking at these magazines in person. Pop into Chelsea Library where you’ll find our Vogue Magazine collection bound in a very chic blue.
