March is an important issue for fashion magazines, so it’s good to hear that many of them are seeing strong ad sales. As the reports roll in, let’s look at the big winners so far.

Ad Age reports that Vogue sold a massive 443 ad pages for its March issue, up four percent from last year. InSyle, according to min, racked up 347 pages, making it the biggest March issue ever for the magazine. Elle also had successful results for the all-important spring fashion preview, grabbing 319 ad pages. Harper’s Bazaar and W both crossed the 200 page mark, with 271 and 204 ad pages, respectively.

The strong showing can mean good things for the economy. Nina Lawrence, Vice President and Publisher at W, explained to Ad Age, “Spring is the introduction of the new season that ignites the engine for consumers to spend.”
