Georgie McCourt-Abay appointed deputy editor of Harper’s Bazaar

Women’s fashion title Harper’s Bazaar has appointed Georgie McCourt-Abay as deputy editor.

McCourt-Abay replaces Rachel Sharp who has moved to the role of editor of Women’s Fitness, a new women’s title which is scheduled to launch in September.

She rises from the role of fashion features editor at Harper’s Bazaar, which she has worked in for a two year spell.

Harper’s Bazaar editor Edwina McCann said: “Over the past two years, Georgie has not only proved herself as a fashion features editor but has also edited two additional magazines: Collections and the recently launched Bazaar Brides. Her professionalism, strong fashion background and reputation in the market are exceptional.”

McCourt-Abay began her magazine career at FPC Magazines in the custom title division. Before moving to her previous role at Harper’s Bazaar, she spent two years working for Vogue Australia as fashion news editor. Before that, she worked on the launch of Harper’s Bazaar in Dubai.
