Vice Starts Revamping Garage Magazine

Travel & Leisure senior editor Thessaly La Force is the new EIC.

The Business of Fashion has the skinny on what’s next for Garage magazine, which was acquired earlier this year by Vice Media. Founder Dash Zhukova is moving up to the position of editorial director and has relocated from London to Brooklyn. In her place as editor in chief will be Thessaly La Force

From BoF New York editor Lauren Sherman’s report:

A rising editorial star, La Force has made a name for herself with thoughtful cultural commentary for publications like The New York Times and New Republic. She joins Garage from Travel & Leisure, where she was a senior editor. She has also held staff positions at The New Yorker, The Paris Review and American Vogue. “Thessaly has an impressive editorial background that brings together art, fashion and design,” added Zhukova. “She has the ability to intelligently communicate cultural trends to a mass audience.”

“As soon as I met Dasha, it was clear that this was what my editorial career was building towards,” said La Force. “I’m thrilled to be here as Garage turns a new page with Vice. It’ll be very exciting to see what we can do next, and how we can make a magazine in this digital space where fashion, art and design intersect.”

As Garage is transformed into a broader Vice digital channel, the magazine’s fashion team will remain based in London. Per Sherman, Phoebe Arnold has come on board there and will serve as fashion director.
