Women's Mag News: 'Self' Revamps, Net-A-Porter Sets Fash Pubs
Conde Nast's Self magazine is revamping its focus beyond fitness and health "to become a more general lifestyle magazine infused with more beauty and fashion, an effort that will include editorial
changes, a new look for the cover and logo and licensing agreements," writes the New York Times' Tanzine Vega. The new target
reader will also be younger, moving from mid-30s to those 18-30 "who are obsessed with social media."
Also, fashion e-commerce site Net-a-Porter today launched a free weekly online mag, The Edit, as a sister of "the as-yet-unnamed print title that will make its debut in the fall and will come out four to six times a year," writes Samantha Conti. Next week Net a Porter will mail out "a one-off print magazine, The Collections Special, that offers a taste of the [upcoming] print magazine."
