Elle Deco appoints Ogundehin as editor to replace Loos
LONDON – Elle Decoration, the modern homes title, has appointed Michelle Ogundehin as its new editor to succeed Rachel Loos, who is moving to France.
Ogundehin has been editor-at-large of Elle Decoration since 1999 and will report directly to Julie Harris, general manager of Hachette Filipacchi's women's group.
Loos has a home in France and is leaving to set up a new business there with her husband.
The appointment marks the second major appointment for publisher Hachette Filipacchi, following the hiring of Lorraine Candy as editor of sister title Elle from Cosmopolitan magazine last week.
Ogundehin began her journalistic career working on the launch of Tate Art magazine, then moved to BluePrint where she rose to senior editor. She runs her own interior design and creative direction consultancy, MO: Studio, and has regularly produced interiors, lifestyle and travel features for The Observer magazine, Elle, Esquire and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.
Harris said: "She has the perfect combination of creative vision and commercial savvy gained through hard work on every rung of the publishing, styling, interiors ladder, to fully embrace the editorship of Elle Decoration."
Elle Decoration recorded a circulation of 60,045 in the latest ABCs.
