Harajuku Subculture Magazine KERA To Cease Print Publication After 19 Years

The monthly Japanese fashion magazine KERA - launched in 1998 with the concept of “the most real Harajuku Street Magazine” - will publish their final print issue on April 15, 2017. After that date, the magazine will shift to digital only. Also, publication of KERA!’s famous “Gothic & Lolita Bible” will be suspended on May 24th.

Starting on May 16th, 2017, “KERA” will begin publishing content through a “comprehensive website” that includes a digital magazine and social media. They will also continue to run the popular KERA SHOP ecommerce website and collaborate with other shops and fashion brands around Japan.

Martha Nelson Joins Yahoo as Global Editor-in-Chief

By Kathy Savitt, CMO and Head of Media

Yahoo Media, including Yahoo’s new Digital Magazines, are comprised of some of the media industry’s strongest editorial and publishing talent, and today I’m happy to announce our newest addition, Global Editor-in-Chief, Martha Nelson.  Martha joins us on August 17th and will be based in our New York office, reporting to me. 

As an accomplished editor, proven brand innovator and media veteran, Martha adds to Yahoo’s established media business to continue to elevate our world-class products and journalism. In January 2014, we launched our first Digital Magazines and have since built 13 in the United States and 30 globally, which are rapidly rising to the top of their categories. With her proven track record of building successful brands as the founding editor of InStyle and for the growth of People (and People.com) into a globally recognized brand, I’m excited to work with Martha to further grow our Digital Magazines.

Most recently, Martha was the first female editor-in-chief of Time Inc., where she oversaw the editorial content for the media company’s 21 brands.  She has received many accolades for her outstanding work, including “Editor of the Year” by Adweek and Forbes Most Powerful Women three years in a row.  She is a trustee of both the National Trust for Historic Preservation and The Actors Fund, serves as a judge for the Peabody Awards.

Yahoo DIY Makes a Home Online

By Katie Brown, Editor in Chief of Yahoo DIY

At my house, everything is an adventure. Whether I’m planning an informal dinner party, getting my hands dirty in the garden, or just trying to survive the demands of everyday life, I look at every activity as an opportunity to show my personality and infuse a touch of homemade flair. Today, I’m excited to launch Yahoo DIY, a new digital magazine that inspires, entertains, and educates do-it-yourself enthusiasts and weekend warriors alike.  

The magazine is packed with design trends on a budget, step-by-step decor improvements, wearable crafts, and easy projects for kids.  Yahoo DIY won’t just tell you how to do it - we will show you through slideshows, listicles, and original videos. All of these are visual blueprints to keep your projects on track and on-budget.

We’ll bring do-it-yourself projects to life by launching three new video series: “Daily Made” shows off easy solutions for common household conundrums; “Home Made” provides crafters with must-know how-to tips;  and “Katie Made” offers a sneak peak inside my own quirky DIY projects.

Yahoo DIY isn’t about perfection. We will be working alongside you as you take on projects and explore your creativity. My goal is to create a homebase where you can find simple tips and step-by-step guides to make your aspirational projects doable.

You’ll be amazed by what a little elbow grease and a dose of personality can do!
