MERRY CHRISTMAS



LATE DECEMBER 1918
Christmas and After
by Helen Dryden


Though the Armistice was signed in November 1918, Vogue's festivities could not start until the Christmas number. Helen Dryden's selebratory cover focused on the deliverance of France, where so many Britons had fallen, and whose ragged tricolour reminded readers that victory came at a price





EARLY FEBRUARY 1919
Early Signs and Portents
by Georges Lepape


Between 1920 and 1930, Georges Lepape produced over 70 covers. his last appeared in 1939, just as war broke out for a second time






EARLY NOVEMBER 1920
Winter Fashions Number
by Helen Dreyden


This was the most prolific year for Dryden, in which she produced perhaps her most famous cover. She was everything Vogue could wish for in a cover artist. She could change her style- one moment over-ornate, the next decorative, but always informative.
