Teen Vogue, Vogue’s cool younger sister will close its print edition

In the digital age, it is not uncommon to hear whispers that print media is 'dead' or 'dying'. Magazines were once seen as a sacred form of news and fashion, only to be replaced by quick clicks, likes, and memes. Over the past two years we have seen big titles fall under wrath of digital and the latest edition to hit the shredder is the fashion bible for Gen-Z and millennials, Teen Vogue.

WWD reports that Teen Vogue will cease production of their print edition as part of a wider plan to build Conde Nast's digital business. The plan will also see reduced frequencies of most of the publishing house's titles. Sources at WWD claim that GQ, Glamour, Allure and Architectural Digest will go from 12 issues to 11; Bon Appétit will go from 11 issues to 10, and W and Condé Nast Traveler will now have eight issues, down from 10. Vanity Fair, Vogue, Wired and The New Yorker will not see any changes to their frequencies.

Since its launch in 2003, Teen Vogue has emerged as a strong and youthful voice for millennials who love fashion, while highlighting diversity as well as political and current affairs. The closure of the print edition follows news this year that NYLON would cease producing their print edition, as well as various print magazine closures in Australia including DOLLY and CLEO magazine.
