Published by TI Media, Maire Claire’s first issue was released in 1988. (Time Inc. UK was acquired by Epiris LLP and rebranded to TI Media in June 2018, after Time Inc. was acquired by Meredith Corp.)
“Marie Claire readers have always encompassed a combination of intelligence and a passion for fashion and beauty; that mix has not altered. And while Marie Claire has been through iterations containing those two elements, it has never strayed from that,” stated Justine Southall, managing director for Marie Claire UK. She added: “While a lot has changed in the world over three decades, not least in media, staying relevant after 30 years and standing the test of time has required quite a transformation”. Featured in the latest issue is a series of conversations between successful women and the women who inspired their careers, including Charlotte Olympia and Sophia Webster, Bobbi Brown and Jen Aiken, MIA and Deeyah Khan, Deborah Frances White and Aisling Bea and Mary Katranzou and Belle Leigh Smith.
Five influencers recreate iconic fashion and beauty looks from Marie Claire’s past in the issue as well. and Halpin travels to Ghana with her teen daughter to highlight the importance of girls’ education.
To celebrate its 30th birthday, Marie Claire UK launched a campaign at the beginning of this year called #WomenKind, with a series of events, features, social activity, and videos.
Marie Claire UK claims it reaches 5.6 million women monthly across platforms.
