Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia Announces Olivia Phillips As Editor In Chief

Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia is thrilled to officially announce our new Editor in Chief, Olivia Phillips.
“I am honoured to take the helm of Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia at one of the most pivotal times not just for the fashion and media industries, but also for women and for the Middle East,” Olivia said. “Harper’s BAZAAR has an unparalleled heritage built on both prestige and pioneering. I intend to lead the Middle Eastern edition into a bold new direction whilst upholding those fundamental pillars, creating a home for values, agenda-setting conversations and the region’s immense talent,” she adds.

Olivia’s Masters in Fashion Journalism from London College of Fashion was the beginning of a fifteen-year-long career in which Olivia has worked with global industry leaders including Refinery29, Net-a-Porter, Stylist Magazine (UK) and Grazia Middle East and built lasting relationships with fashion’s power players – Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney to name a few.

Headhunted from London in 2014, she has spent six years championing, supporting and engaging with the fashion landscape in the Middle East.
