HISTORY

One World Trade Center, the headquarters of the company

Condé Montrose Nast , a New York City-born publisher, launched his magazine empire in 1909 with the purchase of Vogue , which was first created in 1892 as a New York weekly journal of society and fashion news.

At first, Nast published the magazine under Vogue Company and did not incorporate Condé Nast
Condé Nast
until 1923. He had a flair for nurturing elite readers as well as advertisers and upgraded Vogue, sending the magazine on its path of becoming a top fashion authority. Eventually, Nast's portfolio expanded to include House the Gourmet brand was later resurrected as "Gourmet Live," an iPad app that delivers new editorial content in the form of recipes, interviews, stories and videos. In print, Gourmet continues in the form of special editions on newsstands and cookbooks.

Other Condé Nast

In late October 2013, the company ceased its low and unpaid internship program.
