“I am thrilled to be entering into a long-term partnership with Prisma Media to bring Harper’s BAZAAR back to a market where fashion magazines first originated and to a country that is an undeniable leader in fashion, culture and the arts,” Jonathan Wright, president of Hearst Magazines International, who made the announcement with Prisma Media President Claire Léost.

Harpers Bazaar reaches more than 137 million readers across print, digital, social and ShopBAZAAR.com. It now has 28 editions around the world.
