Sopheak Seng has been appointed fashion editor of Lucire, taking over from Samantha Hannah.
Mr Seng had worked in the workroom for Robyn Mathieson before styling and merchandising for the Wellington designer.
‘I am delighted that Sopheak has agreed to join Lucire,’ says Jack Yan, the magazine’s publisher. ‘Not only does he have my approval, but that of his predecessor.
‘Already in his first reports for Lucire I have found him energetic and enthusiastic. Sopheak has an encyclopædic knowledge of fashion and I look forward to working with him as we develop our properties worldwide.’
‘I am very excited about joining the Lucire team,’ says Mr Seng. ‘I’ve been a fan of the magazine for a long time, and admired its pioneering moves online and in print.
‘We have discussed some of the new media Lucire is going in to, and I cannot wait to play a part in this new era.’
Mr Seng is Lucire’s first male fashion editor, though a number of men serve in editorial capacities for the magazine around the world.
Mr Yan paid tribute to Mrs Hannah, who departs for Fishhead. ‘Sam came on board with great ideas that set us in motion in late 2008 and through 2009. I’m very pleased with the work she has done with us and wish her all the best with her new ventures.’
