Style.com's migration to Vogue.com is now complete. In a letter's editor Monday evening, Vogue Runway Director (and former Style.com Executive Editor) Nicole Phelps announced that Style.com's 16-year archive of runway images has migrated to its new digital home, VogueRunway.com, where coverage will continue when New York Fashion Week kicks off Sept. 10. 

Thanks to a handy "fashion show finder" at the top of every Vogue Runway page, readers can access over 1 million images from shows since September 1999. Not that the '90s don't get their due attention — to commemorate its launch, the site features complete collection images of 25 memorable runway shows from the decade, including John Galliano's lavish Christian Dior couture show at the Paris's Opera Garnier in 1998 and Marc Jacobs's infamous grunge collection for Perry Ellis in 1993. In addition to these images, writers such as Sarah Mower, Lynn Yeager and Phelps contributed pieces on the decade's influence.

If that's not enough to pique the interest of fashion fans, Vogue has opened part of its print archive for free through Labor Day weekend. Readers can log in to the archive (username: runway@vogue.com and password: runway) and browse every September issue since 1893. 

Meanwhile, Condé Nast is busy setting up the new Style.com as a centralized e-commerce hub for all its titles. It won't launch until early 2016 and until then the legendary domain name is taking a break — and redirecting to Vogue Runway
