Chloe Beeney named fashion director at British InStyle

I'm absolutely thrilled at the news that stylist Chloe Beeney is to head up the fashion department at British InStyle, under editor-in-chief Eilidh MacAskill.

We first met when we were working on the same floor at Vague House, Chloe toiling away as junior fashion editor at Brides, battling poofiness & meringues on a daily basis, me battling egos & the weather on a different magazine as I produced shoots in every corner of the world for some of the most legendary (& legendarily difficult) photographers.

I stayed put for a few more years, but Chloe moved on to work with Isabella Blow as a contributing fashion editor at The Sunday Times Style section for four years, before going freelance as a stylist.

She's created beautiful editorials for Harper's Bazaar US, Russia & Australia, Dansk, Nylon & Vogue, personally styled celebrities too famous to name, and worked with photographers from Mario Testino to Alexei Lubomirski.

Congratulations to Chloe.
