Eastern Visions of Vogue
From the launch of Vogue Russia in 1998 to Vogue Ukraine in 2013 – and more recently Vogue Poland and Vogue Czechoslovakia in 2018 – the Central- and Eastern-European region has developed as both a dynamic consumer market and as a rich source of creative influence. This session will examine the various Central- and Eastern-European visions of Vogue and what this means for the luxury and fashion industries at large.
