Carine Roitfeld is joining Harper’s Bazaar as its global fashion director. Roitfeld currently works on a variety of projects — including her biannual CR Fashion Book — and will continue to do so.
As global fashion director, Roitfeld will work with Stephen Gan, creative director of Harper’s Bazaar, on several stories a year, starting with the March 2013 issue.
“Hearst is the world’s largest publisher of monthly magazines, and we’re always looking for powerful ideas that can play out across the globe,” said David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines, in a statement. “Carine is one of the fashion world’s most influential tastemakers and we look forward to seeing what she does with Bazaar. Her contributions will help lead the company to new heights on the creative front.”
