The changes inside Vogue continue apace: Eve MacSweeney, the magazine's feature director, will be departing the magazine later in September, according to several sources.

MacSweeney has been at Vogue since 2002, serving as the glossy's features director since 2010. She will be giving up her title to start her own venture, according to sources, and will reportedly stay involved with Vogue in a freelance capacity. In launching her own business, MacSweeney joins Vogue alums like Meredith Melling, Lauren Santo Domingo and Sylvana Ward Durrett, who have all found post-Vogue careers as entrepreneurs — though we're sure MacSweeney will go in a different, non-fashion direction.

There have been many changes at the top of Vogue's masthead in recent months; in June, it was reported that veteran editors Tonne Goodman and Phyllis Posnick would be stepping down from their official positions, and just before the start of fashion week, Selby Drummond announced she too would be taking a role at Snapchat.

UPDATE, Weds. Sept. 12, 4:55 p.m.: A Vogue spokesperson has confirmed that MacSweeney will be departing the magazine.
