was an American weekly women's fashion magazine that began
publication in 1867 in the large newspaper
format design of Harper's Weekly.
Harper’s Bazaar, based in New York, was
intended for the women of the
middle and upper socio-economic classes of the
second half of the 19th century, and
provided fashions from Paris and the German
fashion newspaper, Bazar. The focus of
Harper's Bazaar was on "....the useful with
the beautiful, and aiming to include every thing
that will be interesting to the family
circle.... Being intended largely for ladies, it
will devote a considerable space to the matters
which fall particularly under their
jurisdiction, such as dress and household
affairs." [Harper's Bazaar, November 2,
1867] In 1901, Harper's Bazaar became a
monthly, and in 1929 its title was changed to
Harper's Bazaar, a magazine in publication today.
