Top staff members at the world’s leading fashion and lifestyle magazine, Vogue, are undergoing a reshuffling process. From Fashion Directors to Executive Fashion Editors, all have been assigned new roles in and outside the Conde Nast owned company Vogue.
West Coast editor, Lisa Love, a 28-year veteran of Vogue and longtime Hollywood conduit for the magazine, is shifting to a role at CNX, a Conde Nast’s in-house creative agency, which has worked on creating custom content for such brands as Gucci, Comedy Central and Google.
Fashion Director, Tonne Goodman, who books most of the magazine’s celebrity covers will now serve as a contributing editor, whiles Virginia Smith assumes the role of Vogue Fashion Editor. Executive Fashion Editor, Phyllis Posnick, who produces dreamy fashion editorials with top photographers is also leaving his staff position to contributing editor.
They follow in the footsteps of Grace Coddington, the magazine’s flame-haired Creative Director at large, who moved from a staff position to freelance in 2016, and has since signed a deal to host a talk show, Face to Grace, for IMG’s streaming M2M fashion channel. Virginia Smith will assume the role of Vogue Fashion Editor.
Conde Nast, which owns Vogue as well as The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and GQ, has for the past several months been consolidating staff into fashion and beauty hubs that work across several brand titles and moving expensive salaried veterans to freelance positions.
