Chris Madden magazine on the way

NEW YORK — Designer Chris Casson Madden, interior decorator to celebrities, best-selling author of home decor books and most recently home textiles brand name at JCPenney, is launching her own decorating magazine May 3 with publisher Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S.

The debut of Madden's not-yet-named magazine will strategically coincide with the release of her new spring collection at JCPenney. Initial distribution will comprise 400,000 copies at newsstands, with 50,000 copies to be distributed at JCPenney's retail locations.

The magazine will center on renewal, celebration and simplicity — themes on which Madden said she bases her decorating philosophy.

Madden will serve as editorial director, working with Olivia Monjo, editor-in-chief of Hachette's Special Interest Publications division, and Jim Fraguela, vice president, publisher of the group, who will oversee the business side.
