Vogue-January 1923

The paper is finally finished! It was great learning about the fabulous fashion editor Dorothy Todd who wrote for Vogue from 1922-1926. Here is an image and quote from the January 1923 issue. Her fashion director Madge Garland also played a large role in the new direction Vogue took during this difficult period. Thanks again to Vogue UK.

"With winter now in full swing and an icy wind playing havoc with our constitutions, it behoves us to betire ourselves briskly, and to this end we provide ourselves with a coat that gives line to the figure and yet does not impair the deep breathing which we are told is so beneficial, and a skirt that is plain in style but not restricted in width."
