Industry Access: Alastair McKimm and Samira Nasr

The role of editor-in-chief in today’s media climate ensures all creative content fits into a publication’s big picture. When it comes to their respective titles, both Alastair McKimm and Samira Nasr bring together their two decades of experience navigating fashion that has fortified their adaptability and understanding of the business of media. As a widely recognized fashion stylist and influential global editor-in-chief of i-D Magazine, McKimm has sustained i-D’s long-storied connection to subversive fashion, the energy of the street, and youth pop culture. Equally in her part at Harper’s Bazaar U.S., Nasr, as the first woman of color editor-in-chief at the legacy title, has ushered in a new era as a creative beacon for diversity and inclusivity. Both bring to the stage their selective backgrounds and rich experiences, promising a riveting dialogue that delves deep into the fast-paced creative landscape. In a rare assembly of fashion titans, managing editor Irene Ojo-Felix sat down for the latest installment of Industry Access with two of the industry’s most influential figures to discuss their starts, creating a culture that people want to be part of, and the importance of understanding fashion as a business.
