Melissa Ventosa Martin Joins Self

Melissa Ventosa Martin has been named Self’s new fashion director. She comes to the magazine from Glamour, where she served as style director since 2010. Previously, Ventosa Martin served as fashion market director and fashion editor of T, The New York Times Style Magazine.

“Melissa’s styling, even her personal style, embodies Self’s clean, crisp, modern fashion point of view,” said the glossy’s editor-in-chief, Joyce Chang, in a statement. “She is simultaneously thoughtful and effortless in her approach. It’s how a strong, chic woman who expects the best for and from herself wants to dress — in a way that’s aspirational but also understandable and fun.”

Vantosa Martin’s appointment is effective June 30.
