The Telegraph restructures its fashion team, cementing its place as the most comprehensive and experienced of any news brand

18 December 2017

The Telegraph today announced it has restructured its fashion team to reflect its commitment to premium, agenda-setting features, interviews, shopping and shoots which engage and inspire readers.

All members of the fashion desk will work across all print, digital and social channels, with a bespoke, multi-platform approach which maximises The Telegraph’s position as the UK’s leading quality news brand, reaching 27 million customers each month.

The Telegraph’s award-winning fashion team is overseen by Jane Bruton, Deputy Editor and Director, Lifestyle and winner of the Mark Boxer Lifetime Achievement award at this year’s British Society of Magazine Editors Awards. Hattie Brett is the Deputy Lifestyle Director. It is the strongest and most experienced team of any national news brand.

In a series of fashion team changes:

Lisa Armstrong, Fashion Journalist of the Year at the British Press Awards, becomes Head of Fashion and Style

Maya Zepinic has become Fashion Director, creating shoots across The Telegraph’s magazine portfolio

Sophie Warburton has been appointed Style Director, overseeing and contributing to visual content across all platforms

Bethan Holt, Digital Writer of the Year at the BSME Talent Awards, has been appointed Fashion News and Features Director, overseeing and contributing to written content across all platforms

Emily Cronin, Victoria Moss (currently on maternity leave) and Charlie Gowans-Eglinton have been appointed Senior Fashion Editors

Caroline Leaper has been appointed Fashion Editor.

Carla Bradley remains Fashion Production Editor; Olivia Buxton-Smith remains Style Writer and Krissy Turner remains Fashion Co-ordinator.

The fashion team restructure comes hot on the heels of the launch of The Telegraph’s dedicated Fashion Unzipped podcast which brings insight and opinions from the fashion and lifestyle team’s hottest stories, as well as chat and discussion about what they’re wish-listing, wearing and talking about.

Sasha Slater, Head of Magazines, said: “’The changes demonstrate how important fashion, luxury and lifestyle are to The Telegraph and show we’re putting digital first, in every aspect of editorial. The fashion team under Lisa is the envy of the industry and will continue to go from strength to strength.”
