Since last week’s edition of Editorial Musical Chairs, the most noteworthy and surprising development has been Anne Christensen’s move to Glamour. She just left her fashion director position at T a few weeks ago, reportedly to focus on a freelance career, but instead will be Glamour’s new executive fashion director, effective August 24th. The position was previously held by Xanthipi Joannides, who left the magazine last month.
Another big move was Peter Kaplan’s to Fairchild Fashion Group, where he will serve as the company’s editorial director. Kaplan served as editor of The New York Observer for 15 years and creative director at Conde Nast Traveler since last year. Starting August 2nd, he will oversee WWD, WWD.com, Footwear News, Menswear, Fairchild Summits, Fairchild Books and trade shows.
In other WWD news, online fashion editor Veronique Hyland has left the company to write a novel about child prodigies.
At Lucky, a replacement has been found for Redbook-bound editor Meredith Rollins in freelance writer Danielle Pergament.
Traditional Home magazine has lost its senior design and markets editor Sabine Rothman, who has been named style director at House Beautiful.
Several hires have been made at Town & Country under the title’s relatively new and slightly creepy-looking editor in chief Stephen Drucker. Nandita Khanna departed Departures for a senior editor position; Eimear Lynch from Businessweek will be senior associate editor; and Danielle Stein left her senior editor position at W to become features editor at T&C.
Catherine Hong has also left W to become executive editor at InStyle.
Finally, at New York Magazine, Amy Larocca has been promoted from contributing editor to fashion director, replacing Harriet Mays Powell, who has reportedly left to “develop a multimedia project.”
That’s it for this week! Stay tuned for more comings and goings.
