Italian Vogue launch fashion Encyclopaedia!
Many fashion lovers refer to their Vogue magazines as a fashion Bible, where they go to for the latest fashion news and trends every month. They swear by their Vogues, but now Italian Vogue have created a super online Encyclopaedia, Vogue Encyclo, for fashion lovers, so they can get their fix anytime, anywhere.
US Vogue launched a similar site earlier this year, but only Vogue staff are able to contribute. Italian Vogue’s new encyclopaedia allows absolutely anybody to contribute to the new database which covers all areas of fashion, however all submissions will be looked over by Vogue staff before publication. Editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani wrote on her personal blog: “We will try not to alter your pieces, but some will have to be modified and you have to accept that and not feel judged, just guided by someone who has more experience. You can always use [your articles] on a future rÃ©sumÃ© to become journalists, if that is what you aspire to.”
So not only are fashion lovers able to get their daily fix, but aspiring Journalists can also use the site to help build up their CV/Resume. It looks like this could be the start of a new Online fashion trend as we’re expecting many other magazines and competitors to follow suit and launch their own fashion databases, but don’t forget that Italian Vogue were there first!
