ANOTHER EDITOR: Susannah Frankel has been named editor in chief of AnOther magazine, a division of Britain’s Dazed Media and will take up her new role in January.
She has been fashion features director of AnOther since its launch in 2001, and a regular contributor to its sister publication, Dazed & Confused, since 1998.
Most recently, Frankel was fashion director of Grazia U.K., which she joined in 2012. She was previously fashion editor of the Independent from 1999 to 2012; and The Guardian from 1996 to 1999.
Frankel’s first book, “Visionaries: Interviews with Fashion Designers,” was published in 2001 by Victoria & Albert Publishing and she has also contributed to books on Lee Alexander McQueen and to exhibition catalogs for Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, Martin Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Peter Jensen, Hussein Chalayan and Yohji Yamamoto.
She is currently working a book with Stephen Jones that is due to be published in autumn 2016.
Jefferson Hack, chief executive officer and cofounder of Dazed Media, said Frankel “has been part of the Dazed Media family since the beginning,” and will be a key player as the group drives forward its commitment to “creativity, originality and innovation.”
Nancy Waters continues in her role as editor of AnOther and Natalie Rigg as editor of anothermag.com.
