NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Interactive One is excited to announce the hiring of Marielle Bobo as the new Executive Director of Style and Special Projects. Bobo joins Interactive One with over 17 years of fashion and beauty media experience. Widely known as a masterful creative director, Bobo joins iOne as a key member of the launch team for their groundbreaking lifestyle platform debuting in the Spring. Prior to joining the organization, Bobo served as the Fashion & Beauty Director at Ebony Magazine, where she oversaw fashion and beauty coverage, including creative direction and styling for celebrity cover shoots and fashion features.
"I have worked with scores stylists and fashion insiders over the years," says Kierna Mayo, SVP of Content and Brands at Interactive One. "But Marielle is singular. She brings a particular kind of far-sighted, cutting-edge magic to every shoot. When you are on her sets, there is an undeniable artistic flavor that envelops the room.

We ultimately tapped Marielle because as a fashion leader she embodies the spirit of what we are creating next—something millennial, urban and unapologetic."
