NYLON, founded in 1999, is a fashion media title with print, digital, social, and events assets, with headquarters in New York. NYLON Magazine for young women, and NYLON Guys Magazine and websites are published in the United States, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. NYLON is programmed for real world fashion, for young millennial, focused on the twenty something audience.
With a median age of 25, according to Beta, NYLON’s readers are almost ten years younger than the median age at larger titles in NYLON’s competitive set such as Glamour, Marie Claire and other titles in the category. Additionally, NYLON’s audience is 80% single and has an average income of $68,000, which translates into readers without issues such as mortgages or children, allowing them to use their discretionary income on themselves. As the population ages and other titles in the category are aging with it, NYLON is skewing younger, with readers who are digitally focused and edgy. NYLON is backed by Diversis Capital LLC, a North American private equity firm based in Santa Monica, California.
