LONDON — Anna Harvey, the former deputy editor of British Vogue who helped to style Princess Diana, has died at age 74 after a long illness. She is survived by her husband and their four children.
Harvey was most recently editorial director of Condé Nast new markets, having started her career at Condé Nast’s Brides magazine in the Seventies. She moved to Vogue in 1977 where she served as fashion editor until 1990. She briefly held the title of associate fashion editor before being promoted to editorial director of Condé Nast new markets, where she launched numerous Vogue titles in China, Russia and India.
“She had a deep love of Vogue and was a wonderful editor,” said Stephen Quinn, former publishing director of British Vogue. “It was a clever idea to make her editorial director of the Vogue editions in Russia, China and India, amongst others, where she guided a new generation of editors and introduced them to her unique integrity and cool judgment. I admired and liked her very much.”
