Carine Roitfeld who founded CR Fashion Book after leaving Vogue Paris where she served as Editor in Chief for a decade is expanding her current relationship with Hearst Magazines. Ms. Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book will now be part of the Hearst stable in a deal that calls for Hearst to host CRFashionbook.com on its publishing platform and manage digital advertising and distribution. Conde Nast will still get a piece of the Roitfeld action because PubWorX which is a 50/50 joint venture between Hearst Magazines and Conde Nast will handle the printing and distribution of CR Fashion Book’s biannual edition. Ms. Roitfeld already had a longtime relationship with Hearst where she has worked as the global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar for about 5 years.
Said Ms. Roitfeld:
“I love working with the editors and executives at Hearst Magazines; I trust them and they trust me. I have the freedom to express myself creatively and reach tens of millions of readers around the world in Harper’s Bazaar, and now I have found a home where CR Fashion Book can continue grow and thrive, both in print and online.”
