Carine Roitfeld was named on Thursday global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar.

Roitfeld had been working on her own magazine, CR Fashion Book, since she left Condé Nast’s French Vogue in 2010 after 10 years in the role.

At Harper’s, she’ll work with creative director Stephen Gan, her collaborator on Fashion Book, on several stories a year, including covers, for all international editions of the magazine. She starts in March.

“Carine is one of the fashion world’s most influential tastemakers, and we look forward to seeing what she does with Bazaar,” said Hearst Magazines president David Carey.

Roitfeld also added she won’t stop working on the biannual Fashion Book or other projects.
