Olivia Phillips has been named Editor in Chief of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, joining from Grazia Middle East.
She will report to Sue Holt, managing director, ITP Saudi, ITP Consumer & ITP Live.
“I am honoured to take the helm of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia at one of the most pivotal times not just for the fashion and media industries, but also for women and for the Middle East,” said Phillips.
She added: “Harper’s Bazaar has an unparalleled heritage built on both prestige and pioneering. I intend to lead the Middle Eastern edition into a bold new direction whilst upholding those fundamental pillars, creating a home for values, agenda-setting conversations and the region’s immense talent.”
Phillips has also worked for global industry leaders including Net-a-Porter, Refinery29, Matches Fashion, Stylist Magazine (UK) and Jimmy Choo.
Headhunted from London in 2014, she has spent six years championing, supporting and engaging with the fashion landscape in the Middle East, as well as interviewing style’s biggest names including Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Angela Missoni and Victoria Beckham.
