Turkish Vogue has just launched in big fanfare with a party at the Crillon Hotel to celebrate its premiere issue. Canadian model Jessica Stam is wearing up-and-coming designer Giles Deacon on the cover of #1 issue (shot by Patrick Demarchelier of course), which is going to be edited by Seda Domaniç together with Fashion Director May Fellowes. Condé Nast International (or its local publishing partner) apparently enlisted the help of the London-based creative group Foxall Associates to design and art direct several of the fashion features that are found in this debut issue.
Vogue Turkey’s first issue boasts an amazing 562 pages including 262 pages of advertising (not bad during one of the worst ad slumps in history), among them Dior, Escada, D&G, as well as a bunch of local labels.
The latest international edition of Vogue is published under license by Doğuş Media Group, which also produces Fashion TV and CNN in Turkey. Vogue Turkey is expected to grow to a circulation of 80 000 copies in the country (also encompassing Turkish part of Cyprus) and will go for on sale at 4 euros.
