New partnership showcases rarely before seen imagery and illustrations from fashion’s iconic archives
Getty Images announced an exciting new image partnership with premier media company Condé Nast to represent the Condé Nast Collection, featuring a century’s worth of contemporary and vintage artwork from the company’s portfolio of prestigious brands.
The landmark editorial partnership will bring together Getty Images’ archival expertise as guardians and curators of the renowned Hulton Archive, the world’s largest archive in private hands, with Condé Nast’s custodianship of one of the most important fashion archives in the world. With over 30,000 unique photographs, magazine covers and illustrations from leading brands such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ, the Collection will feature iconic images from famed photographers Edward Steichen, Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and many other celebrated 20th-century photographers and illustrators. Getty Images will also be representing a number of Condé Nast’s contemporary editorial photographers, including Patrick Demarchelier and Arthur Elgort, whose work will continue to grow the Condé Nast Collection.
“Condé Nast has an unparalleled legacy in fashion and lifestyle content,” said Elodie Mailliet Storm, Senior Director of Content Partnerships at Getty Images. “We are thrilled to partner with Condé Nast to give this incredible wealth of iconic imagery new life.”
“This collection is one-of-a-kind, and provides unique insights into the modern day fabric of our culture”, said Bob Ahern, Director of Archive Photography at Getty Images. “As a one-stop destination for the world’s best imagery, we look forward to bringing the rare archival gems in the Collection into the spotlight.”
Established in 1909 by Condé Montrose Nast with the purchase of Vogue, Condé Nast has long been recognized as a pioneer tastemaker, with the award-winning company serving over 126 million consumers across print, digital and video.
“Getty Images is renowned for curating and creating the very best in visual content,” said Cathy Hoffman Glosser, senior vice president of licensing for Condé Nast. “This expertise matched with our rich history of compelling editorial content, provides the perfect home for this culturally significant imagery.”
A selection of contemporary and vintage images from the Collection will also be made available for purchase as framed prints from Getty Images’ home art store, Photos.com.
