Fashion journalist, Jessica Michault, will be starting as the fashion columnist for Elite Traveler magazine found aboard private jets and mega-yachts.Michault covers the industry for the International Herald Tribune, based in Paris. She will serve as a Contributing Editor for Elite Traveler.

“Jessica will bring unparalleled expertise and fashion industry insight to our more than 400,000 readers,” said Laura Q. Hughes, Editorial Director of Elite Traveler.

“Jessica’s knowledge of what’s new, important and hot on the fashion front, combined with a visually beautiful page design and Elite Traveler’s luxuriously oversized format, will make the new Fashion Column an immediate must-read for elite travelers,” Hughes said.

In each issue of Elite Traveler, Michault’s column will highlight a key fashion trend for the season ahead and include such details as top looks from the ready-to-wear or haute couture runways, luxury boutique shopping tips and opinions from the most revered designers today.

In keeping with Elite Traveler’s award-winning style and format, the column will provide readers with pictures of the fashions discussed and easy-to-use information on where all items can by purchased.


“Fashion is an integral part of our readers’ lives—on average, the Elite Traveler reader spends over $100,000 per year on fashion alone,” Hughes said.

“Our readers are constantly buying right from our pages, and the Fashion Column will further drive their desire to shop for the best products available.” Elite Traveler already features fashion shoots in every issue, plus extensive coverage of timepieces, jewelry and accessories.

Michault is a veteran journalist having worked for the past nine years under Suzy Menkes, the IHT’s Fashion Editor who is the acknowledged worldwide authority on fashion.

Michault has assisted Menkes with all of her fashion feature articles and official appearances.

Since 2001, Michault has also written extensively for the IHT’s Style pages and Special Reports from the runways, showrooms, luxury boutiques and executive suites of the fashion industry’s most important companies.

Her reporting duties for the IHT take her throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and to other fashion capitals around the world.

“I’m thrilled that Jessica Michault, a true fashion insider who is among the first people to spot key luxury fashion trends and news every season, will be sharing her views with Elite Traveler readers,” says Hughes.
