Refinery29 hired Gabrielle Korn as fashion and culture director, responsible for building the young women’s brand’s voice in style, culture, identity, and world events, while also growing its digital audience.
Korn previously served as editor-in-chief of Nylon prior to its sale to Bustle Digital Group in June. In that role, she was credited with expanding the brand’s coverage to be more inclusive of racial diversity, LGBTQ, and body positivity content. Korn previously worked with Refinery29 as beauty editor before joining Nylon in 2014.
“As an experienced storyteller and champion of inclusivity, Gabrielle has always been a prime example of Refinery29’s mission to motivate and inspire women through their own unique identity and personal style,” said Christene Barberich, global editor-in-chief and co-founder of Refinery29. Korn will report directly to Barberich, starting November 18.
