Conde Nast Axes Gourmet, Cookie, Modern Bride & Elegant Bride

DolceTracker| It wasn’t a good day for Traditional readers at Condé Nast today. Heritage didn’t rule and weddings aren’t a sure bet in the future, if the marriage trends in Europe are any future forecast for America.

The financial ax fell with the closing of Gourmet, Cookie, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride. We’ve tracked the Conde Nast McKinsey study for the last several months, just writing about it now in Anne’s Journal: Six Degrees of Separation: A Gaultier Trench Coat, Hogaarden Beer, Saving Vogue, One Blue Lagoon Guy, Slow Living & Saying ‘No’ to Brussel Sprouts.

Condé Nast competing publications Bon Appetit and Brides are presently standing. Previously, Condé Nast closed two new titles Portfolio and Domino and folded Men’s Vogue into Vogue.
