Time Inc. is shuttering the print edition of InStyle U.K. According to WWD, the magazine’s December edition will be its final issue. The mag will relaunch as a digital-only brand early next year.
As with any magazine folding, layoffs are on their way. In fact, Time Inc. is already engaged in a consultation process with staffers. The process is required by law when a company wants to cut 20 or more staffers within a three month time frame.
Charlotte Moore, InStyle U.K.’s editor, will stay on. She said folding the print edition was a necessary evil.
“The fashion world is changing dramatically, the way our audience interacts with it is changing, and we have to change to meet that challenge,” Moore told WWD.
