Vogue Archives and a new Fashion App

The entirety of the Vogue archives — every issue since 1892 has been digitally scanned, page by page, and made available through a pricey new subscription site. There are roughly 2,800 issues in the archive (Vogue was published weekly until 1912, and has been monthly, with the exception of some war years, only since 1973) and so it holds the potential for endless examination. Click here to find out more. Also take a look at the 90 second demo! Awesome. Of course, the only down side is that the subscription is $1500 per year. A lovely Holiday gift idea though! Wish they put this all on a DVD!

The "Collection" - A new ipdad app from the New York Times. The Collection, an iPad app from The New York Times, creates a new way for tablet readers to experience The Times's fashion and style coverage. With an elegant, immersive and highly visual user interface, this app is a one-stop destination for all things fashion from across The Times. The Collection builds on exclusive coverage from Styles, T Magazine and The International Herald Tribune and adds slide shows, video and updates from The Times’s fashion blogs. The Collection app is free to download and all content will be free through March 14, 2012. After this date, some content will remain free but only New York Times subscribers will have unlimited access to the app.
Since I subscribe to the Sunday NYT I am able to enjoy this app. It is a great value added addition to my subscription. I love this App.
