Time Inc is shutting down the printing presses on the UK edition of women’s magazine InStyle after 15 years.

In a statement on Wednesday, the company announced that InStyle UK will be relaunched as a “digital first brand.” The final issue will go on sale in December.

WWD reported that Time Inc has “entered into a consultation process with staff,” but did not say how many jobs are at risk at the magazine.

Editor Charlotte Moore will remain in post. She said: “The fashion world is changing dramatically, the way our audience interacts with it is changing and we have to change to meet that challenge.

“With a focus on delivering the InStyle experience across all digital platforms, we can really give our audience 24-hour access to all the fashion and beauty looks, trends and brands they clearly have such a huge appetite for.”

InStyle UK is targeting 200% growth in 2017 across all digital platforms. The US website has 10.5 million unique users, Time Inc said, but it did not provide figures for the British website.
