Some say fashion is a frivolous pursuit, but it is amazing how looking back at fashion can you tell you so much about what was happening in the world at the time. The cover archive of Vogue UK is amazing, with covers dating back to 1916. Reflecting not only the changes in fashion, but also what we were interested in – each year – since then.
