The UK edition of Marie Claire magazine will cease publication following its November 2019 issue as it becomes another media brand to realign its output as digital-first. TI Media, which publishes the title alongside dozens of others including Wallpaper* and Livingetc, said in a statement that the “evolution” of the fashion and beauty magazine to online will “best serve the changing needs of its audience’s mobile-first, fast-paced, style-rich lifestyles”. The Guardian reports the closure of the print edition will affect 35 members of staff.
Marie Claire UK launched 31 years ago and has long been an advocate for women’s rights, winning four Amnesty International awards.
“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,” Marcus Rich, TI Media’s CEO says. “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.” Both are online retail brands launched by Marie Claire, the latter with Ocado.
The closure of Marie Claire UK does not affect international print editions. TI Media closed gossip magazine Now earlier in 2019 and NME in 2018.
