Condé Nast: Put Fashion in Vogue
Condé Nast established a magazine empire. Known today as Condé Nast Publishing, it has expanded beyond his wildest dreams with a vast array of periodicals including Vogue, Glamour, House & Garden, Vanity Fair, Golf Digest, Architectural Digest, Bon Appètit, The New Yorker and many others. Its circulation dwarfs Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes and Fortune combined. His impact on the world of fashion was second to none. When French fashions and patterns were unavailable during World War I, Vogue helped make New York City the center of international fashions. Award-winning author and syndicated columnist Daniel Alef tells the story of a giant in the publishing and fashion worlds, his great successes and his turbulent life.
