THE BRANDS

On November 21st, 1945, the Russian-born and Paris-raised Hélène Lazareff launched a modern women’s magazine that would become a staple in every woman’s home in France. The internationalization of ELLE began in the United States and the United Kingdom in 1985 and presently accounts for 45 editions around the world, with more to come. 

Lazareff’s unique visions were transformed into a concept so strong and relevant to women that it has become a global brand.

ELLE Decoration was launched in France in 1987 by Jean Demachy, Editor in Chief of the French ELLE between 1983 and 1997. 

His aim was to establish a magazine that would be to the field of interior design what ELLE is to the world of Fashion – the absolute reference.

He adapted the spirit of ELLE to the universe of lifestyle and design, with a mission to inspire dreams and help them come true.

 

KEY FACTS

From a French magazine to a powerful international media network – with 45 editions worldwide and a global reach of 200 million – ELLE is now the world’s number one female media brand. And its network is still expanding.
