Two months ago The Business of Fashion spoke with Ariel Foxman, editor of InStyle, and asked him to impart some of his "secrets of success". Foxman is very successful - the first male managing editor of the magazine and under 40 (but probably only for a few more days, I'm guessing). So Harvard grad, editor at 34, perfectly named - the list of amazing continues. I'm charmed that Foxman adores his readers. He says so often siting his habit of perusing his twitter feed and emails gathered each night. The readers, they're the number one resource in his very successful universe.
“If we don’t have a relationship with the reader, we have nothing."
So romantic. And smart.
