The dictionary defines vogue as -
"Popular, one that is in fashion at a particular time"
About this site :
This website is an archive/library devoted to popular fashion
from the 1920's through the 1960's and to the designers, models
& photographers which inspire us.
I started myvintagevogue in November of 2008. Initially it was a
small flickr stream with fashion images I liked. As the stream became
more popular and I learned more about fashion photography and
advertising I realized there needed to be a permanent home for my
growing collection thus the site was born.
This "passion project" is from my personal collection of vintage photos,
magazines, catalogs and pattern books. I personally scan and restore most of
what you see here. For me these images are more than fashion they are a slice
of time and history. They are a view into our past or what we imagined our past to be.
About Me :
I have always loved the past and have been a collector since childhood.
Some of my fondest memories are of antiquing, thirfting and rummaging
around yard sales. My first collection of fashion images were pulled
from my Aunt's collection of 1960's American Girl Magazines when I was in the
second grade. Now I am passing on my love of the past to my young son.
Living in Los Angeles I have a day job that pays and a dream job
that doesn't but that won't stop me from making it happen. Between being a single mom,
having a day job and myvintagevogue it's a lot of work but I love every minute.
