IPC has appointed a new editor of Nova, the contemporary fashion
title it launched in May, following the resignation of launch editor
Currently editor of The Sunday Times Style magazine, Jeremy Langmead
will join for issue seven which comes out in November.
Having worked at The Sunday Times since 1994, Langmead was previously
with consumer titles such as Tatler, Elle and Mirabella.
Bee joined IPC 18 months ago to launch the title from the editor’s chair
at Scene magazine. She will have edited the first six issues by the time
she leaves and is said by IPC to have been successful although as yet
there are no ABC figures.
A spokesperson said: ’We wanted a contemporary new style magazine with a
millennium feel and that is what we got. The reception from advertisers
and readers to the magazine has been very good’.
Although the spokesperson said Bee’s decision to leave was her own, she
accepted that Langmead may well now change the fledgling magazine which
is the reincarnation of a seventies fashion title.
’All new editors have new ideas - he will look at it when he comes in
and decide what to do,’ the spokesperson said.
Nova first launched in 1965. It ran ground-breaking articles and
attracted contributors such as as photographer Terence Donovan.
