On Friday September 15, Are Media announced the return of ELLE print magazine in 2024.
The media organisation will publish two editions of ELLE Australia next year (autumn/winter in March and spring/summer in September), growing to four editions in 2025
The decision to revive the print product after a three-year absence follows the success of the ELLE Australia website, which has an average of 270,000 unique visitors and 530,000 page views a month.
Are Media General Manager – Fashion and Beauty, Nicky Briger, spoke on the magazine’s print return: “ELLE is the fashion bible for Gen Z and millennial smart, savvy, stylish women who love to shop. They’re keen early adopters and want to be first to know everything so they can share that knowledge with their friends.
“With that in mind, ELLE brings them the now, new and next in fashion, beauty and lifestyle, but it’s also at the centre of the cultural conversation, bringing them everything from news, views and entertainment to social issues and politics.
“Print is seeing a resurgence globally, especially in the luxury and fashion space, so we’re thrilled to be bringing back the much-loved magazine – something tangible to have, hold, read and leaf through.”
To bolster ELLE’s style credentials, Naomi Smith and Sally Hunwick have been appointed the brand’s Fashion and Beauty Directors respectively. Both have four decades of experience between them and are two of Australia’s most respected fashion and beauty experts, having worked for multiple luxury brands, including Vogue, Harper’s BAZAAR, ELLE and marie claire throughout their extensive careers. Naomi and Sally will work across ELLE and marie claire.
The ELLE Editor will be announced in the coming week.
