French ELLE to be published in Uzbekistan


The world-famous fashion, beauty, lifestyle, health and entertainment magazine, ELLE will now be published in Uzbekistan. Founded in 1945 by Ellen Gordon-Lazarev, ELLE is currently the world’s largest fashion magazine, reaching 32 million readers and more than 90 million unique visitors per month on 56 local sites. When social media is taken into account, ELLE has an audience of over 200 million people worldwide.

This is the first time a global magazine of this scale is entering the Uzbek market. The publishers have already started hiring workers for the Uzbek representative office. The peculiarity of this edition will be that for the first time an international media brand will be printed in the Uzbek language.

The magazine’s website and its local social networks will be launched in June, and in September readers will be able to receive the print version of the publication. “ELLE Oʻzbekiston will be the first international publication to produce content in Uzbek,” the magazine’s representatives said. In total, the publication will be published in three languages: Uzbek, Russian and English.
