Change must be in the air--and we're not just talking the seasons. While summer is indeed coming to a close--so too are the tenures of several fashion glossy editors.
From T's Sally Singer, to Teen Vogue's Eva Chen, the editorial world has recently been rocked with several big-name shake-ups at a number of major titles. A trend we're noticing? Folks with senior titles leaving editorial for the comfort ($$$) of big brands.
Click through for for a thorough guide to all the recent shuffling.
Eva Chen Left: Teen Vogue as Beauty and Health Director/Special Projects Director Going to: Chen is keeping it under wraps for now, but given her visibility in the industry--and her ability to charm the pants off just about anyone--we can't wait to see what she does. We hope it's somewhere where she's very visible, like, on the small-screen visible. Stay tuned.
Sally Singer Left: T Magazine Going to: No word yet on where Singer will go from T, but given her reputation and sharp editorial eye, we've no doubt she'll wind up on her feet.
Stephanie Trong Left: The Cut as Editorial Director Going to: Unclear--we're hoping somewhere online though!
Jen Ford Left: Lucky as Fashion News Director Going to: Kate Spade
Faran Krentcil Left: NYLON Magazine as Senior Web Editor Going to: Various freelance jobs, including writing for Clarins and Shopbop. She says: "I left NYLON because a voice in my gut told me to go forward, and that's the only voice I really trust...I was also offered some incredible freelance projects--helping Clarins launch their new website and writing for Shopbop to start; now some new editorial work and even brands asking to sponsor my Tumblr [farankrentcil.tumblr.com] (which is wild, at least to me). And I was craving time to work on my own fiction and playwriting. But I'm still contributing to NYLON and thank goodness--I'm having a bit of neon withdrawal!"
Ray Siegel Left: Lucky as Online Fashion Editor Going to: NYLONMagazine as Senior Web Editor She says: "I think I've always been a Nylon girl at heart: More music, more irreverence, and probably the exact same amount of glitter nail polish. But on a more serious note—I'm psyched to take all of that web knowledge and apply it somewhere new, from a different point of view."
