I find all these Conde Nast contracts to be such a problematic issue for fashion magazines, why are they suddenly happening now it seems like? I'm sure they've always existed, but were never discussed.

And models also have contracts with Conde Nast too, no?

Vogue Sets Edition in Thailand

LONDON —Vogue will launch in print and digital versions in Thailand in 2013, said Jonathan Newhouse, chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast International.

The publisher has signed a licensing agreement to publish the title in partnership with Serendipity Media Co. Ltd., a new Thai company established for this venture.

Newhouse said Thailand has a "well-established media market, and there's a strong appetite for luxury fashion and beauty among its sophisticated urban consumers. The time is now right for Vogue."

Kullawit Laosuksri, who served as editor-in-chief of Elle Thailand for nine years, is editor of the latest edition of Vogue. Nigel Oakins, a publisher with experience in Thailand and the Asia region, has been named executive chairman of Serendipity Media Co. Ltd, while Siri Udomritthiruj, previously managing director of The Post Publishing magazine division, has been named chief executive.

James Woolhouse, president of Condé Nast Asia-Pacific said: “We are pleased to work with Nigel Oakins and Siri Udomritthiruj, two experienced and well-respected media professionals.

“Editorially, Kullawit Laosuksri has an unparalleled knowledge of the fashion and beauty market, and excellent relationships with both local and international fashion brands. The stage is set for the arrival of Vogue, the pre-eminent fashion media brand, in Thailand,” he added.

Oakins noted that Thailand has a lively local fashion scene, "with many top designers starting to break through both regionally and internationally, so the timing is perfect.”

Vogue Thailand will be the twenty-first Vogue worldwide. Vogue also plans to launch in Ukraine next year, as reported.

Honestly, if you're going to give countries like Thailand or Ukraine a Vogue...how about Denmark/Swede/Scandinavia!? These countries are the hubs of innovation especially in design so I just don't get it!

i couldn't agree more, there is so much talent in Norway & Sweden (Åkrans,Sundsbø,Ohlsson,Jansson), so why Thailand and i don't wanna imagine the covers we'll get...............

The places Vogue is launching new editions aren't based on where creative talent lie.

Most vogues are very international in the brands they feature, perhaps to the detriment of companies that might most benefit from their exposure (e.g. Costello Tagliapietra has far more to gain from being featured than Chanel, but I bet we'll see more Chanel in American Vogue this year).

Anyway, Vogue is opening new editions in places where markets for the international brands they feature are growing. Chanel is as relevant in Denmark now as 10 years ago -- but the same cannot be said the Ukraine, Turkey, now Indonesia, India, China -- all the places were in the past decade we have seen new Vogues.

it's definitely not whether norway&sweden have more talents and that whole nine yard but its about demand.

thailand is a country with more than 65 millions people and their economy is growing fast. their luxury market is way bigger than norway and sweden. so it just totally make sense to have vogue thailand.

denmark, sweden and norway are countries with a few million people and their luxury market is not big so it make no sense to have a vogue edition in these countries.

That's why you can have a regional one like Vogue Scandinavia to encompass all those countries

but they dont speak the same language so it makes no sense. and there seems not to be a celeb culture in scandinavia and people here dont seem to be into luxury goods unlike asians.

im living in toronto, and asians here are known for being big shoppers of luxury goods.

bottom line, it is all about business, and scandinavia edition of vogue just doesnt make sense to me under business perspective.

a middle eastern edition makes a lot of sense to me given arabic is a common language in that region, and there is a huge market for luxury goods over there.

Yes, but they do all speak and understand English. Just like how Vogue India is published in English, you can also have such alternative. I understand it's all about business but I think Scandinavians have a progressive society who do buy luxury goods and there is an inherent understanding of fashion. And if going by your argument, why was Voge Portugal created then?

I don't understand why so many people dislike the idea of the new editions of Vogue?
And these prejudices like Ukraine & Thailand are some off the map countries ??

Please, using the term prejudice is a bit extreme isn't it? Anyway, it's more of us being surprised at the way Conde Nast is developing the Vogue brand.
