“LA GAZETTE du BON TON”

View Gallery

The magazine, La Gazette du Bon Ton, was founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel (1886 – 1954) a French publisher, editor, and photographer. The small, but influential magazine aimed to establish fashion as an art alongside painting, sculpture and drawing. According to the magazine’s first editorial: “The clothing of a woman is a pleasure for the eye that cannot be judged inferior to the other arts.”  Throughout its 13 years of existence the magazine strived to reflect the latest trends in fashion, lifestyle, and beauty.
