CNN Style - Bridging the gap between current affairs and global culture
By George Webster, Executive Editor, CNN Style
Cultural change impacts our lives as much as business, politics and technology. But in a globally connected world, where do you go for an authentic, global point of view? CNN Style is the only platform to offer coverage of style and culture on every continent, with the stories a global audience needs to know right now.
Working with major talents and leading authorities across fashion, art and design, we provide smart, sophisticated and award-winning coverage of the cultural moments that matter all around the world.
The trust, recognition and reach of the CNN brand gives us unparalleled access to the world’s most influential and important talent in the region.
This year, supermodel Claudia Schiffer joined us as Guest Editor, exploring the theme of “Icons”; we filmed an exclusive homage to Donatella Versace, narrated by Lady Gaga; we shot an exclusive and rare in-depth interview with David Hockney inside his LA home and we traveled into the future with rapper Will.i.Am.
Next year, expect to see significantly more big names in Q1, when we’ll announce a new Guest Editor around London Fashion Week and launch a new series exploring changing attitudes toward beauty and identity around the world.
Unlike many other platforms, CNN Style is on the ground at the game-changing industry events shaping the global conversation.
This year, we were everywhere from the Venice Biennale to Art Basel to Salone del Mobile, and we won a prestigious Lovie Award for “Best Individual Editorial Experience” for our exclusive VR interactive inside for the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Next year, we’re offering exclusive event partnerships to luxury clients seeking enhanced association with the high-end art, design & fashion industries. These include brand partner for all Art Basel coverage and on-the-ground events; brand partner for the major Fashion Weeks and Design weeks – including Design Miami & London Design Week, as well as in-depth award season coverage in Q1.
