Harper's BAZAAR magazine is returning to Australia

Hearst Magazines International has announced that Harper's BAZAAR magazine will be returning to Australia.

According to Mumbrella, Switzer Media & Publishing, a Sydney and Melbourne-based media company, will lead sales, marketing, and brand strategy for the title, which will be overseen by publisher, Maureen Jordan.

"To be appointed publisher of this 154-year-old iconic fashion bible is a great honour," said Jordan.

"BAZAAR has been missed by its loyal following in Australia in recent times and not only are we excited about its relaunch, we are passionate about collaborating with Hearst Magazines as we understand and redefine our readers’ expectations."

Along with the relaunch, Jordan will conduct the search for a number of key creative positions, including editor-in-chief of the brand.

The debut issue, a special collector’s edition, will hit newsstands in September 2021.
