A Century Old Page Turner

Jul 13, 2010 By Amy

It’s amazing that 100 years ago today Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) printed their first independent issue. The publication originally started as an insert for the Daily Trade Record (later DNR), but after a month launched their own daily print edition. The paper went for one cent a day or three dollars for a year’s superscription — not too shabby.

WWD has evolved with the times and technology, while they still have a print edition, their website remains a hub of knowledge for the industry. Seeing their evolution below makes us wonder where MyFDB will be in 100 years; but only time will tell, so for now bon anniversaire WWD!
