We just got a tip from a very reliable source that W's revered fashion director Alex White resigned this afternoon. According to the source, White has left to focus on freelance projects.
If it's true it's shocking news, and a shame. White has been at W since 1994 and stuck around through all the recent changes at the high fashion glossy--namely the installment of Stefano Tonchi as EIC and she just launched the delightful blog Alex White Edits (though it hasn't been updated since March 23).
We've reached out to W for confirmation and will update with any news. If you know anything write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
