The lingo of fashion is hard to master, especially when it comes to oxymorons. There's "low high heel," "jolie laide," and "alligator skin" (uh, hello, they're not warm blooded and therefore have no skin...). And now there's one more: "Daily Weekly." It's the new branch of Fashion Week Daily, the IMG publication with the website, the Fashion Week magazines, and now, a weekly newsletter (on paper!) chronicling the last seven days of style. So now the logistics: Having a daily website and a weekly magazine works really well for New York and NME, but they have too much content. Can The Daily create a fashion feast for both the internet and a new glossy? And - more fun to think about - who will be added to the masthead to help churn out the chic? Stay tuned, this should be a fun one.
Confirmed: Brandusa Niro is Buying The Daily
As Fashionista first reported in November, IMG is selling fashion trade publication The Daily to Brandusa Niro, its editor. Niro told Forbes that she owns a "controlling interest" in the magazine and website, but that its editors and writers will still benefit from the resources--aka good tickets to all the big shows--that IMG has supplied them with in the past. Forbes also asked Niro what she thought about Rupert Murdoch's The Daily, that iPad-only daily newspaper. (Apparently there's been a little legal battle between Murdoch's News Corp. and IMG regarding trademarks on the name.) Niro said that she had no comment on what she planned to about the situation, if anything at all.
