As Vogue Magazine celebrates 75 years, 'Head To Toe' meets the people who work at the magazine in London.
Vogue magazine has been synonymous with fashion since its first issue in 1916.
The most influential lifestyle magazine in the world.
Over the past 75 years boom, depression, war and peace have all been reflected through the fashion pages of Vogue, with many of the cover girls becoming international celebrities and the designers household names. Vogue photographers have been responsible for setting many of the fashion trends.
'Head To Toe' presenter Barbara MacMahon meets the magazine's Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Tilberis and attends a celebratory Vogue fashion show at Harrods in London. Elizabeth talks to Barbara about how the magazine has evolved, what it means today and the possibilities for the future.
Barbara also chats to Liz Thoday, a Fashion Assistant at Vogue, about her work and the importance of the cataloguing procedure which photographers employ when on a shoot. Senior Fashion Editor at Vogue, Harriet Jagger, comments on the changes that have taken place at the publication and the expansion from a fashion magazine to include lifestyle.
