Vogue had a history before Edna Chase edited it and before Conde Nast published it, but its prestige and success were chiefly determined by this skilled pair in the early twentieth century. Chase began in the Vogue circulation department in 1895, advanced to editor in 1914, and finally climbed to editor-in- chief when Vogue expanded to international editions in the late 1920s. During her thirty-seven years at the helm, Chase directed a publication that originated as a weekly pictorial record of society under first publisher, Arthur B. Turnure. Although Vogue continued to feature the haut monde, by the turn of the century greater emphasis was being placed on fashion as a device to attract advertisers. The ploy worked and fashion continued to be Vogue's main focus after the publication was bought by Conde Nast in 1909.
