On Friday, Business of Fashion reported that, per sources, two of the Condé Nast fashion mainstay's most veteran editors will be stepping down: Fashion Director Tonne Goodman and Executive Fashion Editor Phyllis Posnick.

Additionally, West Coast Editor Lisa Love will also leave Vogue to take on what BoF called a "new corporate role."

Goodman, Posnick and Love have all spent decades with the publication: Goodman has held her title since she joined Vogue in 2000; Posnick in 1987; and Love in 1990. To lose three of the masthead's longest-serving talents signifies what could be start of a new chapter — or in magazine speak, issue — for the Anna Wintour-led (and newly-Air Jordan-clad) title.

We'll update this post as we learn more.
