Lots of editorial moves are afoot post-New York Fashion Week. The latest news comes from Harper's Bazaar, which announced Thursday that it has brought on former T: The New York Times Style Magazine Editor in Chief Deborah Needleman. Her title, effective immediately according to a press release from Hearst, will be editor at large; she'll report to EIC Glenda Bailey and be responsible for contributing story ideas.
"I'm a huge fan of Deborah's work," said Bailey in a statement. "She has a keen eye for content that resonates."
Needleman stepped down from T in late 2016 after an impactful but somewhat controversial tenure: She was called out for things like a lack of diversity, a story about "slut style" and putting a then-underage Julia Nobis on the cover, which led T's editors to examine its fashion photography policy more closely.
Before T, she was Editor of WSJ magazine and, before that, a founding editor at Domino.
