Condé Nast International is to launch GQ Middle East in a license agreement with ITP Media Group - a surprise move as Condé Nast already works with ITP’s regional rival Nervora, the publisher of Vogue Arabia.
John Varvatos is creating a new tv and film series based on his book, "John Varvatos: Rock in Fashion." Canada's Network Entertainment announced the partnership, which will focus on fashion, music and pop culture.
The media group has announced that the former head of Elle Japan will join the company on May 7. Yves Bougon has been CEO of Hearst Fujingaho in Tokyo since 2011 and will take over at Condé Nast from Xavier Romatet.
Xavier Romatet, in the process of leaving Conde Nast International, has already been negotiating with unions at Groupe Marie Claire in recent weeks on a restructuring of the French media group, sources have said.
