With Vanessa Friedman moving to the New York Times, Robin Givhan shipping back to the Washington Post and the rumor mill of Condé Nast EIC switcheroos churning away as usual, it sometimes seems that the fashion publishing world is one big merry-go-round of hirings and departures.
T: The New York Times Style Magazine is the latest to undergo some changes, with a few new additions to its non-fashion departments.
Emily Stokes has come aboard as T's senior features editor, having previously edited the Readings section at Harper's. Meanwhile, novelist and non-fiction author Andrew O'Hagan is joining T as its new critic-at-large — according to a rep for the magazine, he will be "our man on the spot for tales of the unexpected." Jody Rosen, who has been a music critic for New York, Slate and Rolling Stone, will also serve as a critic-at-large.
If you'll recall, Deborah Needleman made a whole lot of hires when she arrived at T from WSJ back in September of 2012. She and Friedman are scheduled to co-host the New York Times International Luxury Conference next December, replacing Suzy Menkes, who left the Times for Vogue earlier this year.
