The UK print edition of Marie Claire is to cease publication after publisher TI Media confirmed the monthly women’s title would shift to a ‘digital-first’ strategy.
Commenting on the announcement, TI Media CEO Marcus Rich said: “For more than three decades, Marie Claire UK has led the conversation on the issues that really matter to women – from campaigning for women’s empowerment to climate change – while providing a premium fashion & beauty positioning that reflects their everyday lives. With full focus on our digital platforms, we will be future-proofing our ability to report on these vital and engaging subjects, alongside our top ranking fashion and beauty offering and media-first brand extensions, The Edit and Fabled by Marie Claire.”
The new digital-first Marie Claire UK will be published under a licence agreement with Groupe Marie Claire. Jean de Boisdeffre, Executive Director, Marie Claire International, adds: “We are thrilled to work with TI Media on this very important evolution of the Marie Claire brand. After more than 30 years of achievement in the UK, this new digital-first approach provides the launch pad for even more success in the coming decades.”
The November 2019 issue will be the final print edition of Marie Claire UK.
