PARIS — Will the stream of grim financial news take any of the shine off the content in glossy fashion magazines?
Advertising and newsstand sales are already under pressure, with the latest figures showing single-copy sales down across the board in the first half, and page counts likely to take a dive in 2009. Through October, monthly magazines saw ad pages decrease 8 percent over the same period in 2007, according to figures from Media Industry Newsletter. The October issues alone reflect an even sharper decline, shrinking 12 percent over October 2007.
