NINA GARCIA IS A NEW EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF ELLE
Nina Garcia has been named the new editor-in-chief of Elle magazine. She is well known for her role as creative director of Marie Claire magazine and as a judge on the popular series Project Runway. She was a fashion director of Marie Claire from 2008, and was appointed as a creative director in 2012. Her new post is a return to Elle, where she was the fashion director from 2000 to 2008. She has also published four books about fashion.
According to the New York Times, Garcia will be responsible for strengthening the brand’s identity and will continue Elle’s tradition of celebrating diversity and emerging voices and work closely with the 46 international editions to share talent globally. Her first issue is likely to be February or March 2018.
“Look at the issue of empowerment around young working women and the obsession with fashion and beauty. The Elle woman is sexy, passionate, loves her work, is social. She’s someone global millennial women aspire to, and no one represents that more than Nina,” said Joanna Coles, the chief content officer of Hearst Magazines.
