Wellington, June 7 (JY&A Media) As it prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary, New Zealand fashion magazine Lucire has picked up an award from the UK’s Luxlife magazine as part of the latter’s Health, Beauty and Wellness Awards for 2022.
‘Ultimately, the Health, Beauty and Wellness Awards were launched to determine and recognize the best of these companies and their world-leading products, services and experts. This year’s winners are certainly no different,’ said Luxlife.
Lucire was named by Luxlife’s judges as its ‘Most Pioneering Online Fashion Magazine 2022’.
Lucire founder and publisher Jack Yan says, ‘It’s nice to know that 25 years after we pioneered online fashion magazines, in the plural, in Aotearoa, we are still being recognized around the world for our leadership.’
Not only is Lucire New Zealand’s longest-running online fashion magazine, founded in 1997, it is one of the few anywhere in the world that made the jump successfully into print editions. Today, there are two Lucire web editions, in New Zealand and the US, and three print editions, published in both English and French. Over the years, Lucire has been licensed in Romania, Thailand, Qatar, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia.
‘I imagine our unusual status of having started online, then diversifying into print, piqued the interest of Luxlife’s judging panel,’ says Mr Yan. ‘We also pursued a partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme in 2003 and committed to promoting sustainable fashion, long before it was trendy.’
The Kiwi title remains fiercely independent and based in Wellington, where it was founded.
Luxlife says it focuses on luxury, publishing ‘only the most cutting edge of products, services, attractions and events that will appeal to our audience.’
