CARINE SELLS OUT: Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book has enjoyed a solid reception on newsstands and has sold out of its initial print run of 50,000 copies — at $15 a pop, according to its publisher, Fashion Media Group LLC. Another 15,000 copies have been ordered to replenish stands and will be available before Christmas, said Stephen Gan, president of Fashion Media Group and Roitfeld’s business partner in the semiannual title. The second issue of CR Fashion Book will boost its print run to 65,000 and will launch during New York Fashion Week in February, with distribution on stands internationally by Feb. 21.
Melancholybaby mentioned this in the cover rumour thread, but I think it also belongs here:
Greek Media Company is Closing Down
After 32 years of operation, Liberis Publications are forced to close down as they didn’t manage to get a rescue loan from the bank. In a letter to his employees, publisher Antonis Liberis noted, “I announce to you that today, hope has died.”
According to Lifo, employees have taken their personal items from the publishing company branches in Koropi. Within the next days some of Liberis Publications title deeds, including Ego, and Status magazines, will be transferred to Theoharis Filipopoulos’s Attica Media Publications.
However, no references have been made about the international title deeds. Theodoris Kyriakou owner of Dafni publications is said to have expressed interest and within the next days the Conde Nast group is expected to visit Greece to discuss the terms of conveyance concerning the magazines Vogue, Men’s Health, and Glamour.
The Liberis Publications Group included magazines such as Hello, Vogue, Glamour, Lifestyle, Status, Lucky, Prevention, Men’s Health, Focus, Geo, Ego, 7 Days TV, Tele-control and radio stations VFM and BEST Radio.
I don't care about Glamour and Men's Health, but it would be such a shame if Greek Vogue died. I never bought an issue though, but still.
Anyway, I doubt it will happen. I assume it is going to be published by another company.
The book is so good! Can't wait for Thursday and after that I can watch it over & over.
My sentiments exactly. I received the book last week and I haven't stopped looking at the wonderful content. I'm a massive admirer of Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele and to see a section featuring her work is most pleasurable. I love how the book is also informative.
I will source down the documentary online, just to hear Carlyne's accent.
