Condè Nast publications was founded by Condè Montrose Nast. Born in New York City in 1873, Nast graduated from George Town University and then went on to complete a degree in law at Washington University in St Louis. Surprisingly, he took on a job in publishing, becoming the advertising manager for the US magazine Collier’s Weekly. Alongside this he became vice president for the Home Pattern Company, manufacturer and distributor of women’s dress patterns and it was this knowledge and experience of fashion that drove him to buy Vogue magazine in 1909. He went on to buy Houe and Garden in 1911 and then Vanity Fair in 1913.
Condè Nast publications now publishes 128 magazines, develops 100 websites across 25 markets and has 200 tablet and mobile apps.
