Iconic fashion magazine title Elle is returning to print in 2024 thanks to a resurgence in readership of hard copy publications, a phenomenon its publisher’s boss, Jane Huxley, calls extraordinary.
The title will return to shelves in March, with a second to be published in September, each coinciding with the biggest seasonal fashion points of the year, before moving to four editions in 2025.
The new edition will come almost four years after it last hit the printing presses.
Are Media says details on the team behind the relaunch, including its editor, will come next week.
Magazine print readership has risen for four consecutive quarters, bucking earlier downward trends, after the COVID-19 years, which Huxley says were “good to magazines.”
Readership of popular titles Australian Women’s Weekly, Vogue Australia (News Corp Australia), Marie Claire, and Women’s Day has increased, according to Roy Morgan, in the 12 months to June 2023.
