The traditional pattern of magazines making websites is starting to swap: Next month at New York Fashion Week, IQONS is launching their own glossy. Helmed by fashion writer Diane Pernet (otherwise known as The Shaded View on Fashion), IQONS will release their very own fashion quarterly, including interviews with contributers like John Galliano and photo shoots styled, modeled, shot, and designed by IQONS members. We're still not quite sure if IQONS is a successful fashion site, mostly because (like the now-shutttered FLiP) we find it quite hard to navigate, but it's one of the first examples of a fashion website seeping into print, and that's fascinating. And no, we're not starting our own publication... though if we did, the cover would star Cintia Dicker, obvs.

Edward Enninful Replaces Alex White as the Fashion and Style Director of W; White Rumored to Launch Her Own Magazine
Just yesterday we reported that W mainstay and styling legend Alex White had resigned from W, and early this morning, her replacement has been announced. At around 1am EST Edward Enninful took to his brand new twitter account--it's only two days old--to announce his new position at W magazine, "i have a new job as Fashion and Style Director for W Magazine. Thanks for all the kind words." Enninful takes over this position from White, who held the position for the last 16 years. He got his start at i-D (he was fashion director there at 18) and for the past ten years has worked as freelance stylist for Italian and US Vogue (you might remember him from The September Issue). We're curious to now why White waited until now, months after W's editorial change-up to leave, and for how long Enninful knew he had the job.
