The News Prestige Network has announced that Jillian Davison has been appointed creative director of Vogue Australia and GQ Australia.
In her new role, Davison will be responsible for the visual direction of both brands, working closely with Vogue Australia’s fashion director, Christine Centenera, and GQ Australia editor Mike Christensen.
Davison returns to Vogue Australia as creative director from New York, where she was fashion director of American Glamour for over four years.
Prior to that, Davison was the fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar Australia and fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar in the US. She has also been a contributing editor at Teen Vogue, Vogue China, Vogue Germany, and Vogue Japan.
Edwina McCann, editorial director of the News Prestige Network, said: “With her creative vision, international experience and fashion knowledge, Jillian is highly respected in the industry.
“I’m delighted that she is returning to the Vogue Australia family and also taking on the remit of GQ Australia. Her appointment allows us to do even more Australian storytelling and we feel very lucky to have her expertise and creativity back in the country.”
Commenting on her appointment, Davison said: “I’m thrilled to explore this next creative chapter with Edwina and the Vogue and GQ teams.
“There are major shifts in the fashion industry globally, and to return home to explore all the new possibilities for these premium titles is very close to my heart.
“It’s an incredible opportunity to shape a new visual language for fashion imagery in Australia that celebrates our unique point of view and lifestyle – to create and oversee original content for Vogue, and to explore the dynamic new menswear landscape with GQ.”
