Vogue Launches on Flipboard
Inside Flipboard / February 4, 2014
Vogue, the most influential fashion magazine in the world, makes its debut on Flipboard today. Read by more than 12 million people in the U.S., the monthly glossy is the flagship of Condé Nast’s magazine empire.
Vogue magazine predates Condé Nast’s ownership and began life at the end of the 19th century as a weekly magazine aimed at New York City’s elite. To keep its male readers engaged, it covered sports and social affairs as well as fashion. The young publisher Condé Montrose Nast bought the publication in 1909, turned it into a fashion fortnightly and began expanding its reach with overseas editions. While The Great Depression nearly wiped out Nast the man, Vogue magazine thrived. Anna Wintour became editor in chief in 1988, modernizing Vogue and cementing its position as the industry bible and offering a classic example of how magazine making is truly an art.
