Created by co-founders of Gloss Publications Limited, Jane and Sarah McDonnell, THE GLOSS magazine launched in 2006 as a luxury newsstand title with a focus on fashion, beauty and interiors. In 2009, the magazine evolved to a super-glossy large format magazine, published monthly with The Irish Times. From the outset, THE GLOSS differentiated itself from other magazines, rejecting their generic look and feel by combining fresh contemporary design and distinctive editorial content aimed at the Irish market but with an international outlook. An original mix of fashion, interiors, and lifestyle, interesting features, latest trends news in food, wine, travel and culture, it attracts a discerning reader who appreciates good writing and design, and seeks out the best things in life. THE GLOSS INTERIORS, in the same super-glossy large format, launched in 2012. In 2020, newsstand editions of both
THE GLOSS and THE GLOSS INTERIORS were launched.
THE GLOSS MAGAZINE
Irish and international fashion coverage, industry-leading shoots, fashion finds, style inspiration, beauty trends and news, interiors and garden ideas, and must-visit shops and services, are all reflected in a fresh editorial mix that entertains, informs and inspires.
THE GLOSS also delivers expert travel, food and wine writing, insightful interviews with interesting people, and original, thought-provoking features, as well as news of books, exhibitions, cultural happenings and our own programme of specially designed events.
THE GLOSS INTERIORS
Stunning shoots of Irish and international houses, trends in interior design, property and architecture, furniture and decoration, design getaways, accessories and technology and interesting figures on the design scene feature in THE GLOSS INTERIORS, published with The Irish Times twice a year, in spring and autumn. The design scene in Ireland is thriving and THE GLOSS Interiors reflects the expertise and energy of the interiors and architecture community and provides a valuable resource for readers.
