Hearst UK today announces Michelle Ogundehin as the new editor-at-large and special strategic advisor of ELLE Decoration. Michelle was appointed editor-in-chief of ELLE Decoration UK in May 2004, consolidating a relationship with the magazine that started in 1997.
Internationally renowned as an authority on style, the home and contemporary culture, Michelle led the ELLE Decoration brand to award-winning creative, consumer and commercial success during her 13-year tenure as editor-in-chief. She oversaw successful brand extensions with the launch of ELLE Decoration Collections, ELLE Decoration Country and the ELLE Decoration Style Consultancy, as well as spearheading a landmark campaign to change UK copyright law. This led to debates in both Houses of Parliament and in 2016 rip-off designer classics were officially declared illegal.
In her new role, Michelle will focus on the strategic development of the brand as part of the newly formed Hearst Homes division incorporating Country Living and House Beautiful, and will continue to nurture relationships with existing and new luxury clients.
