Vogue Netherlands closes
In an Instagram post to the publication's official account, Vogue Netherlands editor-in-chief Rinke Tjepkema announced that the Dutch magazine would be shutting down. "I write this with a heavy heart, but also filled with pride of the entire, amazing Vogue team and so many happy memories," she wrote in the caption. "In the past ten years, we've seen a generation of fashion talent reach international success through Vogue, built a loyal following of fashion fans and organized countless events. The Vogue brand has a magic and power that opens doors, and it was truly special to be part of that. I would like to thank the Vogue team, and everyone who has ever contributed to the magazine. But most of all, I would like to thank you. For reading the magazine, following us online and for visiting our events. Only because of you were we able to become such a household name in the Dutch media landscape. I hope you enjoyed Vogue, we have loved every minute of making it for you. Until we meet again." {Instagram/@nlvogue}
