Moving to New York in the early 20th century with just the shirt on his back, Condé Nast soon became the highest paid executive in the United States, acquiring Vogue in 1909 and Vanity Fair in 1913. Alongside his editors, he built an international magazine empire, introducing European modern art, style, and fashions to an American audience. Credited with creating the "café society," Nast became a permanent fixture on the international fashion scene and a major figure in New York society. As Susan Ronald details here, Nast's Park Avenue apartment became a hub for artists, and Nast launched the careers of icons like Cecil Beaton, Clare Boothe Luce, Lee Miller, Dorothy Parker, and Noël Coward.
