New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and while the event doesn’t necessarily make us all want to sport the latest trends, it does let us reflect on the world – and evolution – of fashion. Enduring through that evolution over the last 124 years is Vogue Magazine, whose covers and photos transcend the newsstand, gracing our walls and coffee tables alongside all the art we love.
Now quick: name a Vogue artist.
If your first thought was Annie Leibovitz (or if you just shrugged), you’d be in company with a lot of us here at the Art.com office. But did you know that icons such as Salvador Dali and Joan Miró were published by the magazine? Its history of photos and illustrations is rich with works that are just begging to go up on a home gallery wall or shelf. Let’s take a trip down fashion’s memory lane (catwalk?) with some of Vogue’s most artfully fab artists and moments of the past.
