La Mode Illustree, French fashion magazine published in the 1800s, print
La Mode Illustrée, was a French fashion magazine, published between 1860 and 1937.
It was one of the biggest fashion magazines in the world as well as in the French fashion history during the second half of the 19th-century. It has been called the first weekly fashion magazine. It was the French equivalent of the British The Englishwoman’s Domestic Magazine (1852–1879). Alongside its main rival Le Follet (1829–1892), La Mode Illustrée was particularly successful internationally, with many foreign subscribers in Britain and the United States.
A reason for its success was that it was directed toward the middle and working class and offered patterns to the clothes it illustrated, as well as other subjects such as music reviews, household tips and recipes.
