Editors are hopeful that Fashion GPS's Styles 2.0 platform, which launches today at power-agency KCD's Open House, will help alleviate some of the busy work that has been a major part of the job for so long.
Hurricane Sandy is upon us--but the fashion industry isn't letting this Frankenstorm bring them down. We checked in with some of our favorite people in the industry--from The Man Repeller's Leandra Medine to Kelly Cutrone to DKNY PR Girl Aliza Licht--to find out how they prepped for tonight's storm. For an industry that's supposed to shun carbs we are collectively loaded up on them--as well as candy, nail polish, and fashion mags to read by scented candle light. Click through to see how everyone is getting ready. And above all, everybody stay safe!!
Major shakeups have gone down on Elle.com's editorial side. Everyone's jumping ship! As a few media outlets have already reported, Keith Pollock, Elle.com's editorial director, is leaving to become editor in chief of Du Jour--a new digital and print editorial publication launching in collaboration with Gilt Groupe. What we didn't know until recently is that he will be bringing Elle.com's market editor, Sydney Wasserman, and art director Stephanie Jones, with him to his new gig (Jones will be the art director, Wasserman the senior market editor). So that's about half of Elle.com's editorial staff right there. And that's not all... Britt Aboutaleb, former editor of this site and Elle.com's fashion news editor, is not only leaving Elle--she's leaving New York! And fashion! Sort of!
