Vogue Arabia Is Launching And Guess Who The Editor-in-Chief Is?
Conde Nast International the iconic company behind Vogue are teaming up with Dubai-based Nervora to launch Vogue Arabia this fall, with Saudi Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdelaziz in the position of editor-in-chief. The publication will start digitally, in both English and Arabic, the hard copy magazine is touted to drop in the Spring ’17.
The current digital publication, owned by Nervora will be relaunched as Vogue Arabia. The decision to finally launch Vogue Arabia is a significant one for Condé Nast, given Newhouse’s controversial comments less than 10 years ago dismissing a proposal to launch a Vogue Middle East because of the region having “an element that rejects Western values of freedom of expression, equality for women and expression of sexuality.”
